Royal Enfield Classic 650 Is Being Readied To Cement Firm’s Middleweight Supremacy
The bikemaker is clear about one thing and that is complete domination of the middleweight segment.
A development mule of Royal Enfield’s upcoming Classic 650 has been spotted alongside the new-generation Classic 350 which is due for market launch this year.
But, boy were we wrong. The new spy shot shows that Enfield is indeed working on a bigger Classic that would replace its now discontinued 500cc model.
Featuring a circular headlamp and old school indicators, the Royal Enfield Classic 650 comes with circular mirrors, a nice big tank and sizeable split seats too.
There are USD forks upfront, while the mule also wears alloy wheels and the footpegs have been positioned similar to the smaller Classic to offer a smooth ride. The overall design has clearly been inspired by the current-generation Classic 350 without a doubt.
The 2-wheeler brand is most likely to offer its Tripper Navigation feature on the bigger Classic, while vivid paint options and plenty of accessories will be on offer too.
Powering the motorcycle would be the brand’s potent 648cc twin-cylinder engine good for 47 BHP and 52 Nm and the Classic 650 will come with ABS as well.
Looks like Royal Enfield wants to make best use of both of its 350cc and 650cc platforms in the years to come, as it has planned several new models, including a smaller Interceptor, bigger cruiser, among others.
By positioning several middleweight bikes in the Rs. 3 lakhs price bracket, with each offering something different to the buyer, the brand would likely destroy competition, a.k.a premium bike brands, like never before.
