Thoughts About The Royal Enfield 650 Twins Production Milestone

The Bike has attracted a lot of attention majorly being with the powertrain department. The new parallel-twin engine from the bike surely does not carry any typical characteristics of the previous engine from the company. The engine is smooth with a linear power delivery, which is one of the reasons for motorcycle's success.

Also, Royal Enfield managed to price it aggressively with buyers getting a parallel-twin 650cc motorcycle in 2.5 lakhs. We hope the streak continues for the brand and motivate them to confirm the 650cc Himalayan rumours.
