Royal Enfield 650 Cruiser Spied On Test, But It Is Not What You Think
Sporting a different riding position, the motorcycle has split seats, alloy wheels and USD front forks.
A fresh set of images of the Royal Enfield 650 cruiser that was spied recently has surfaced online, providing a much more clearer view of the motorcycle.
The development mule, which did not have any camouflage, had a round headlight, flyscreen, USD forks upfront, alloy wheels and a single brake disc.
There is a rather ungainly crash guard fitted to the motorcycle which has had its engine painted completely in black. The engine on earlier test mules had a dual-tone look.
Along the sides, the tear-drop shaped fuel tank, split seats that seem to be very accommodating can be seen, and the rear shocks are different to the ones seen on other 650cc bikes from Enfield.
While the side panels and the exhaust are completely blacked out, a circular tail light with a chrome bezel completes the design.
It is a shame that none of the images provide a good look at the instrument cluster. The cruiser bike is expected to come with the Tripper Navigation system first seen on the Meteor 350.
However, what the Royal Enfield 650 cruiser spied images clearly show is the riding position that looks to be more like that of Interceptor 650. Maybe the bikemaker is working on more than 1 version of its 650cc cruiser.
Since it is based on the firm’s 650cc platform that has spawned the Interceptor 650 and Continental GT 650, it sports the same 648cc parallel-twin motor that puts out 47 BHP and 52 Nm.
Of course, there will be a number of vibrant colour schemes, and a range of accessories on offer with the motorcycle right from its launch which is expected to happen by the second half of this year.
