Royal Enfield Guerrilla 450 Teased

Royal Enfield Guerrilla 450 to share its mechanicals with the Himalayan 450

Royal Enfield has officially announced the launch of the Guerrilla 450, scheduled for 17th July in Barcelona. This announcement was made by Siddhartha Lal, Managing Director and Govindarajan Balakrishnan, CEO of the company. The new model is expected to share many components with the Himalayan but appears to be primarily adapted for on-road use.

The Guerrilla 450 is likely to feature more basic hardware compared to its ADV counterpart, the Himalayan 450, making it more affordable. Previous spy shots have revealed several aspects of the bike’s design and features, providing a glimpse of what enthusiasts can expect.

The Guerrilla 450 is expected to include a single-pod instrument console, round LED headlight, sizeable fuel tank and a one-piece seat. While the exact nature of the single-pod console is yet to be confirmed, it might be similar to the TFT display available on the Himalayan. The tank and tail sections of the Guerrilla 450 bear a resemblance to those of the Himalayan 450, suggesting a carryover design.

Unlike the Himalayan’s spoked wheels and tube tyres, the Guerrilla 450 is equipped with alloy wheels and tubeless tyres. Additionally, it replaces the USD fork seen on the Himalayan with a gaitered telescopic fork.

The Guerrilla 450 will utilise the same Sherpa 450 engine that powers the Himalayan. However, the tuning of the engine in the Guerrilla 450 remains to be confirmed. In the Himalayan, the 452cc single-cylinder engine generates 40 HP and 40 Nm of torque and is coupled with a 6-speed gearbox.

As the launch date approaches, more details are expected to emerge about the Guerrilla 450. Enthusiasts and potential buyers are eagerly awaiting further information on this highly anticipated model. With its blend of familiar and new features, the Guerrilla 450 is set to offer a unique addition to the Royal Enfield lineup.
