Royal Enfield recently teased a bobber-shaped cruiser motorcycle. The unveiling is going to happen at the EICMA 2018 on 8th November. While Royal Enfield has literally kept it under the wraps, Autocar Pro has leaked the specifications of it. RE will unveil a liquid-cooled twin-cylinder 830cc cruiser motorcycle. It will be a concept model and will take another year to be a proper production model. Now, the upcoming Royal Enfield 830cc cruiser will be the most powerful in the RE range.
The new 830cc V-Twin engine is built in collaboration with Polaris Industries. Polaris Industries is famous for mid-range and heavy-weight bikes and its popular venture include Indian Motorcycles. This comes in after RE revealed its plan to launch motorcycles above 650cc to take on Harley Davidson and Triumph.
The Royal Enfield 830cc cruiser produces somewhere between 80-90 BHP of power. Since the engine will be BS-VI compliant, there are chances of it coming in the Indian market. As of now, in 750-1000cc cruiser bike range, Harley Davidson Street 750 is one of the best sellers.
If the Royal Enfield 830cc cruiser comes in India, it will take on the likes of HD Street Rod 750 and Triumph Street Twin. However, only the concept will be showcased at the EICMA. The proper production model will take above a year to come to the markets.
In India, currently, the most powerful RE is the Himalayan. However, in 2 weeks, the most powerful ones will be the Royal Enfield Continental GT 650 and Interceptor 650. Both the motorcycles get a twin parallel-cylinder engine. While the GT 650 is a cafe racer, Interceptor is a pure roadster.
Meanwhile, Harley Davidson also plans to launch entry-level premium motorcycles, ranging between 250-500cc. Because of its low sales figure across the globe, it plans to lure the younger generation with newly designed motorcycles. This move is again squarely aimed to take on the dominance of Royal Enfield in this segment.
