Finally Royal Enfield working on higher engine. The Chennai based motorcycle manufacturer is all set to launch its all new motorcycle based on a 750cc parallel twin-cylinder engine. The company has been testing the engine for a while now. During testing in the spy images it’s seems that all new 750cc engine is framed in Continental GT chassis, but only for engine testing purpose. This engine could come with next model of Himalayan and Continental GT.
There are a lot of rumours that suggest the Royal Enfield could launch the new offering with the larger displacement engine of 750cc by early 2018. It will first be available in India then is expected to be exported to other countries.
This bike will rivals to Harley Davidson Street 750 and Triumph Bonneville.
The new bike can be expected to come with 45-50bhp and a peak torque of more than 60Nm.This engine is expected to be the company’s most powerful mill. This will make the new Royal Enfield 750cc motorcycle replace the Continental GT which has a 535cc single-cylinder motor.
The bike is expected to come with air-cooling that will give a boot in favour of an oil-cooler which is a welcome addition.
As the 750cc parallel-twin motor was spotted testing in the Continental GT, it is highly expected that the Chennai based two-wheeler giant will launch a higher displacement cafe racer in the near future.
It is not yet revealed that the first Royal Enfield 750cc motorcycle will be a cruiser, cafe racer, adventure tourer or something else but from all the rumours it is clear that it would be housed in the double cradle frame developed by Harris performance.
In 2015, the maker sold over 4.5 lakh motorcycles globally and also announced that it would produce up to nine lakh motorcycles by the end of 2018 from two of its existing manufacturing facilities. Also it recently announced its third upcoming facility near Chennai.
