The upcoming Royal Enfield twin-cylinder bike has been spotted yet again and this time, it’s nearing production.
The upcoming Royal Enfield twin-cylinder bike has been spotted yet again and the motorcycle is near to entering production with the launch set to happen early next year.
We have already had a close look on the twin-cylinder Royal Enfield bike earlier and are pretty much aware what the motorcycle exactly looks like. The spotted test mule here has a single seat configuration as opposed to a long double seat configuration we saw the last time it was spotted. In the cafe-racer form, the upcoming Royal Enfield twin-cylinder bike will underpin the same chassis as the Continental GT 535 (with slight tweaks to the frame).
The Continental GT 535 is by no means an average or bad motorcycle but the engine has been the sore point in this bike. The vibrations are too hard to ignore but apart from that, the disc brakes, chassis, supple ride quality, tyres and the suspension setup are all a level up on the Continental GT 535. Take it for a casual spin on the highway, and you’ll get to know what I’m talking here.
With the new twin-cylinder engine, Royal Enfield will ensure vibrations are taken care of and of course give it a bump in the power and torque figures.
The upcoming Royal Enfield twin-cylinder bike isn’t a 750cc (as rumoured) but is a bike that will displace 500cc-600cc with an expected power figure of 45-50 HP. The twin-cylinder bike spotted testing on Indian roads and abroad have different engines. While the bike spotted in foreign countries has a UCE engine (could be a 750cc), the bike spotted here in India has a Triumph Bonneville type engine. The India-spec bike will get ABS and the production of this twin-cylinder motrocycle will be happening at the British brand’s Chennai plant.
