Royal Enfield will be launching a host of new models in the Indian market starting next month. The two-wheeler manufacturer will start by launching the much-awaited Meteor in September and follow with other 350cc models and could introduce a new 650cc model as well.
According to the latest video posted by Vilvakumar P on YouTube, it reveals a couple of Royal Enfield models testing in the country including the upcoming Meteor. Other models include another upcoming model called the Sherpa or the Hunter.
The video also reveals the next-generation Classic 350 motorcycle and at the end of the video during a fly-by, we also spotted a 650cc engine powered motorcycle. Even the frozen frame of the video does reveal the motorcycle. However, upon close examination, it seems to be the Continental GT 650.
Before we discuss the motorcycle in details, the company confirmed that all the upcoming 350cc motorcycles will be using the brand's new ‘J-platform' and could come powered by the new OHC engine that will make its debut on the Meteor.
The Royal Enfield Meteor is the second bike that appears in the above video. According to reports, it will replace the Thunderbird X line-up of vehicles. However, going by the latest leaked images of the motorcycle, it could also replace the standard models as well.
The motorcycle will feature a twin-pod semi-digital instrument cluster with a larger pod reserved for the speed, tachometer and trip details, while the smalled pod will feature the brand's first on-road navigation and more.
Another change will be the all-new 350cc powertrain from the brand. It will be an all-new (OHC) OverHead Camshaft set up of the current 346cc air-cooled single-cylinder engine. The new setup on the engine is expected to make it more refined, offer better fuel efficiency, and above all, feature increased performance over the current tappet-valve UCE engines.
The power and torque outputs could be improved as well. The current 346cc single-cylinder, air-cooled engines produces 19.1bhp and 28Nm of torque and comes mated to a five-speed gearbox.
Moving to other models in the video, the next-gen Classic 350, which is also expected to use the same platform and engine as the Meteor motorcycle. The test mule is also missing the pre-catalytic converter bulb on the exhaust-pipe that is present in current-gen models. Also, the handlebar is raised in the test mule as compared to the current Classic 350.
Next-up the Sherpa or the Hunter, there is no confirmation on what the motorcycle could be called. However, reports are suggesting that it could be the new entry-level motorcycle for the brand. Although the motorcycle is not seen properly in the video, it has been spied testing earlier in the country — here are more details.
Moving to the last motorcycle spotted in the video. Although the motorcycle is not seen properly in the video, upon freezing the frame, we could notice the dual-exhaust of the motorcycle along with what seems to a clip-on handlebar.
It could very well be a Continental GT, which could feature a couple of new improvements and could arrive in the market later. We would like to inform you that there has been no official confirmation from the company on other motorcycles spied in the video except Meteor.
Thoughts About The Royal Enfield Meteor Spotted Testing With Other Upcoming Models
Royal Enfield is looking to launch a slew of new models in the Indian market starting with the Meteor. Most of the upcoming motorcycle could feature many new features such as navigation and the all-new OHC engine. For now, only Meteor is confirmed for launch sometime next month, which will be offered in a couple of variants, colours and a host of accessories as well.
