Royal Enfield has been testing a lot of motorcycles lately and the least known of them is the RE 650 cruiser. The shape now can be recognized as the Meteor but the twin exhaust confirms one thing, “This is a 650”. So what could this RE 650 Cruiser add to the existing Meteor package? When will it hit the Market? Here is our expectation about the RE 650 Cruiser.
650 Revised Engine
The Meteor Chassis has been a very big leap for Royal Enfield. Similarly, the 650 engine was a big breakthrough for the company. Put them together in a package could result in a bike that RE fans have been expecting for a long time.
As an engine the 650cc parallel twin with the 270-degree crankshaft fires like a V-twin and produce a deep rumble. The 270-degree crank also results in a power production that makes torque lower down. The engine is a low revving engine and does not have liquid cooling.
Added function to Tripper
The tripper function is currently in a very primitive stage. It is expected to get more added features like Music control and Call Notification display. The Tripper might also improve in term of reverse connectivity which will allow the user to check bike stats through their mobile phone.
The one new thing that has been spotted for the first time on a RE motorcycle is the USD forks. These might be provided for added comfort and stability. The dynamics of the USD forks are a bit different and they offer much stable configuration over the telescopic forks.
Thes seats on the Cruiser 650 will also see a slight change. As the bike will be placed at the higher price range it is expected for Royal Enfield to use premium material and put some research in the way these seats are designed.
Bigger oil cooler
The bigger oil cooler has been placed on the frame at the front. A bigger radiator might keep the bike cooler for longer runs. Being a 650cc it is bound to get hot while in traffic and an oil cooler will keep the heat managed for quite some extent.
For a cruiser, the handlebar seen on this bike is a bit shorter and they offer a sporty look. Also, the footpegs will be forward set. The handlebar gets the new rotary switchgear.
As far as the launch of this bike is concerned, the RE 650 Cruiser has no confirmed launch date. Once Royal Enfield unveils the bike it will give us a better idea of price and the launch date.
