For years, Royal Enfield has been offering its customers only 350cc and 500cc engine options. There have been constant rumours that the Indian-based two-wheeler manufacturer will introduce bigger engines. Now a Royal Enfield with a parallel twin-cylinder 750cc engine was caught testing.
The overall design seen in the images looks like Royal Enfield is currently using the Continental GT frame for testing. Engine and clutch covers are all-new and nothing similar has been previously seen on Royal Enfield engines.
The launch of the Royal Enfield 750 is expected sometime around late-2017 to early-2018. The Indian manufacturer is most likely to commence production later next year. A high possibility exists that the Royal Enfield 750 could be launched in the international markets prior to the domestic market.
So far, the Royal Enfield seen in these images is not the final product and it is still in its initial development stage. The final product from the Indian manufacturer is expected to sport a modern-classic persona. Retro styling and design with modern tech for ease of riding.
Once Royal Enfield launches their 750cc twin-cylinder motorcycle, they will compete with several manufacturers in India as well as in the international market. The Royal Enfield 750 will compete head on with the likes of Harley-Davidson Street 750, and Triumph Street Twin.
