Royal Enfield bikes are one of the most demanded bikes for now. They are currently well known for making classic bikes, adventure bikes and retro 650cc twins. Soon, Royal Enfield 450 twins will be hitting the market. We already know that they will be launching new bikes every quarter of the year. One would be the Himalayan 450 and the other would be the naked version of it. In this article, we have mentioned all details we know about the Royals Enfield 450 twins.
Undoubtedly, Royals Enfield bikes are head turners. They seek attention at red lights as well as on the open roads. So the 450 twins might also get retro styling but with modern features that adventure bikes need. While we know that the 450 Himalayan will be a big adventure bike by design and for use – the bike that has been recently spotted looks like a lighter, more nimble offering with the weight of an ADV being stripped off the bike.
We already know that Royal Enfield is working on a new, powerful engine. We have already listed in detail the Himalayan 450. The engine used in the 450 twins would be a 450cc liquid-cooled single-cylinder engine, with a six-speed gearbox. We expect that this engine would produce power above 40bhp and torque figures above 35Nm.
Royal Enfield 450 twins -Features
Royal Enfield is adopting features that today’s generation needs. We have already seen many new features since the launch of the Royal Enfield Meteor 350. We expect the same from the upcoming 450 twins. Summing up in short, Royal Enfield might give them a similar instrument cluster we see on the Meteor and Himalayan 411. Along with that, these bikes might also get safety features like dual-channel ABS, switchable ABS, and much more.
Royal Enfield 450 twins – Price expectations
The Royal Enfield Himalayan 450 is expected to be more capable of holding highway speeds as well as rough terrains than the Himalayan 411 while the naked 450 could be purely focused on highways and managing broken roads. Both the bikes would be placed between the Himalayan 411 and the 650 twins. So, we expect that they might be priced between Rs 2.6 lakhs to Rs 2.7 lakhs (ex-showroom). We expect that Royal Enfield might launch the 450 twins by mid-2023.
