As we know, the new Royal Enfield lineup is going to be unveiled at the 2020 Auto Expo. Ahead of that, new and detailed spy shots have been leaked.
Royal Enfield is going to update its entire lineup in India for the upcoming BS-6 norms. Almost all the motorcycles will receive a significant upgrade, giving some cosmetic upgrades and minor feature additions as well.
We have fresh spy shots of the new Royal Enfield motorcycle ahead of the expected launch at the 2020 Auto Expo. The spied test mule is most likely of the new Classic with BS-6 engine.
The bike actually looks more sculpted now, mainly from the fuel tank, battery housing cover and the tail lamps. It also gets a new split seat missing out on the springs on the rider’s seat.
The footpegs and levers undergo some revision. Now, the new Royal Enfield motorcycles will miss out on the good ol’ 0kick starter. A revolutionizing moment indeed.
As told earlier, the setup of chain sprocket and rear disc brake has been interchanged. Looks like it also gets a new transmission setup, but will still come with the 5-speed gearbox. Reports suggest that the alternator case will also be revised.
Both the 350cc and 500cc engines will undergo the BS-6 treatment, resulting in an improved acceleration and overall performance. The inclusion of the fuel injection system will also result in slightly better mileage.
We expect the quality and fitting of the body panels and equipment to improve in the new motorcycles. Users are always seen complaining about the quality of equipment on the RE bikes, which we think will no longer be a problem.
Remember, the Bullet, Thunderbird and Classic Series will receive major updates. Since Himalayan and the 650 Twins are new, they are likely to get the BS-6 engines only. Chances are that the Himalayan might also get the 650cc engine onboard.
Officials have hinted towards the launch of the new Royal Enfield motorcycle lineup at the 2020 Auto Expo. But, we expect more leaked details to pour in well before the launch.
