New Royal Enfield motorcycles will get a semi- digital speedometer along with new switches. The complete range will get a major update by the Auto Expo 2020.
Gaadiwaadi has leaked some exciting spy shots of the new RE motorcycle. The photo shows that new Royal Enfield will get an analogue speedometer with a digital readout, for the first time in Classic or Bullet series.
As we see the spy shots, the spotted Royal Enfield continues with the same speedometer with the same fonts, but the new digital readout will give information such as remaining fuel, trip meter, odometer and gear-position.
For the regular ignition switch on the motorcycle. Royal Enfield now puts a red rolling controller for engine on and kill switch. On the left side, also, you get the same controller for pass lamps, high beam lamp and low- beam.
Royal Enfield officials confirmed that they will use a revised platform for the Classic, Bullet and Thunderbird range. We have seen the confirmation of this development in the recent set of spy shots.
The new range is likely to get the sprocket on the left side and the brakes shifted to the right side, for the revised chassis. The brake lever, footpegs, horn and the exhaust mufflers will also be reworked.
Another big update will be a BS-6 compliant engine, which is also be reworked on. The 346cc air-cooled Twin-Spark ignition mill produces 19 BHP and 28 Nm of torque, mated to a 5-speed gearbox.
Reports say that the cubic capacity of this engine will increase by a small figure. We expect it to get fuel injection technology, which will offer better mileage as well as improved performance. Sadly, the kick-start system would not come in the new models.
Other than that, we can expect some minor upgrades like a better and more comfortable seat, more refined performance, some cosmetic differences and halogen headlamps as well.
The suspension will be handled by telescopic forks at the front and twin-shock absorbers at the back. Disc brakes at both the ends with dual-channel ABS will come as standard fitment.
