Royal Enfield`s upcoming 650cc cruiser has been spotted testing recently. The 650cc cruiser in based on the same platform as the Interceptor 650 and the Continental GT 650. Both these bikes have helped RE establish itself as a premium motorcycle brand in the global markets.
Visually, Royal Enfield`s 650 cruiser has bulky proportions which differentiate it from the existing 650 twins. It features upside down front forks, ventilated disc brakes, multi-spoke black alloy wheels, high windscreen, round-shaped headlamp (expected for LED DRL), front and rear circular turn indicators, teardrop-shaped fuel tank and round-shaped rear view mirrors.
In order to minimize manufacturing costs, it shares parts with the 650 Twins and some of the other highlights are split seat setup that seem to be well cushioned, upright riding posture, twin rear shocks, and the Tripper Navigation system that debuted in the Meteor 350 may also be part of the kit. It will have a longer wheelbase than the Interceptor and Continental GT and can therefore be expected to have more relaxed riding behaviors.
The 648 cc parallel-twin engine from the Interceptor 650 and Continental GT 650 stable, shall be powering the brand-new Royal Enfield 650 cruiser. Unsurprisingly, there will be a max output of 46 bhp, as well as peak torque at 52 Nm. The 6-speed transmission with a slipper clutch comes handy.
The much-anticipated launch is slated for late 2021/early 2022. We`re sure that the RE 650 cruiser will live up to the expectations of RE fans for its sporty looks, good performance and high suitability for everyday use once it is launched.
