Royal Enfield is on a roll in the Indian market. It recently launched the Hunter 350, which has everyone drooling with its pricing and design. So what is Royal Enfield’s plan after the Hunter 350? Royal Enfield has a sleeve of products it can launch in the upcoming months. Also, Royal Enfield had earlier confirmed that it will launch one new product every quarter. Next bike from the brand could be the 450. This will not be a single bike, but rather two bikes, so the name 450 twins. One would be the Himalayan 450 and the other could be a Scrambler. In today’s article, let’s talk about the Royal Enfield 450 Twins and what do we know about them so far.
Undoubtedly, Royal Enfield bikes are head turners. Even the recently launched Hunter 350 comes with eye catchy design. Royal Enfield will try to give the 450 twins a retro design but with more modern elements. Recently, a spy shot of the Himalayan 450 surfaced online. In this, the bike seems nimbler than the Himalayan 411. The Scrambler will get a slightly different design with a raised seat and dual exhausts.
Royal Enfield 450 twins – Engine
Royal Enfield is working on an all-new, powerful engine as it is looking to fill the gap between its 411cc and 650cc parallel twin engine. This engine will be a powerful, 450cc liquid-cooled single-cylinder engine, with a six-speed gearbox. It’s expected to produce 40bhp & 40Nm of torque.
Royal Enfield is fast adopting modern features on its newer bikes. We have seen how well it has loaded the Hunter 350. We can expect the same on the 450 twins. What could Royal Enfield offer? Royal Enfield might give it an instrument cluster like the Himalayan 411. Along with that, these bikes might also get safety features like dual-channel ABS, switchable ABS and much more.
Royal Enfield 450 – Launch
So we have covered almost everything, but what about the launch? Royal Enfield recently wrapped up the launch of the Hunter 350. After that, it is expected to launch the new Classic 350. Considering all this, we expect the 450 twins to launch sometime in the initial months of 2023. Both the bikes would be placed between the Himalayan 411 and 650 twins. What about pricing? The Twins could be priced between Rs 2.70 lakhs and Rs 2.80 lakhs (ex-showroom).
