SPIED: Royal Enfield’s Costliest Motorcycle Spotted on Test

This Royal Enfield 650 cruiser will be positioned above the current flagships from the company – the Interceptor 650 and Continental GT 650.

When Royal Enfield launched its new 650cc parallel twin-cylinder engine platform, it was known that it would spawn a range of motorcycles. The company currently sells the Interceptor 650 and Continental GT 650 with that 650 cc motor and it is already testing the third motorcycle on a similar platform.

A new spy video (pics you see on this page are screengrabs from that video) shows an all-new RE motorcycle with a twin-cylinder engine. It gets a new chassis and is likely to be positioned above the company’s current 650 cc line-up. In the process, it is set to become the costliest motorcycle from the Chennai based manufacturer.

From the pictures, we can clearly see the oil-cooler mounted at the front of the engine along with twin chunky exhausts. It also adorns upside down front forks. Apart from that, the bike appears to be low-set and real long with a feet-forward position and a fatter rear tyre.

We are also able to spot a twin-pod instrument cluster, with one large and another small dial, similar to the one spotted on the upcoming Meteor 350.

While this yet-to-be named bike does take design inspirations from the ‘Royal Enfield Concept KX’ shown at EICMA 2018, it also has a few similarities with the Indian Scout!

It looks like the motorcycle is still in the development stages. Hence expect to hear something concrete about its launch plans only by next year.
