The Royal Enfield SG650 Concept has been made in celebration of the brand’s 120th anniversary
Royal Enfield has previewed the SG650 Concept motorcycle before it gets officially unveiled at EICMA 2021. The premium bike maker has created this concept on its existing 650cc platform and thus has shown to the world how its upcoming twin cylinder cruiser will look like.
According to Enfield, the SG650 Concept is about celebrating transition. Thus, the design team based theme on the brand’s classic styling and worked toward a model that resembles what a future neo-retro Royal Enfield would look like.
The bike, which has a heritage-inspired polished aluminium front end, has the analogue soul of Enfields of the past. It also has some subtle nods to the bikes of the bygone era.
The fuel tank of the Royal Enfield SG650 Concept, that has been CNC billet machined from a solid block of aluminium, sports digital graphics. Other billet aluminium parts present on the concept vehicle include the wheels, dual front discs and brake calipers.
With a low rise flat handlebar housing bar end mirrors, the concept vehicle also has an integrated aluminium top yoke, aluminium switch cubes, inverted front forks, twin rear shocks, twin exhaust tubes and a floating solo leather seat.
The engine of the SG650 Concept, the same one powering the Interceptor 650 and Continental GT650, has also been given the same graphic element (through polished aluminium) found on the fuel tank.
