Again on the finish of August, 2022, we were given our first authentic trace {that a} extra robust Royal Enfield Himalayan is on its approach. A 450cc model have been rumored for a while, however a brief teaser clip posted by way of Royal Enfield managing director Siddhartha Lal on Instagram used to be the most powerful indicator but that each one the ones phrases weren’t simply wishful pondering. 

Even though the video didn’t give a lot in the best way of data (it didn’t even come with precise audio of the motorbike), occasionally seeing is all you want to do to consider. Naturally, although, construction of a Himalayan 450 results in questioning what else is within the pipeline. We all know that Enfield has formidable plans for its new fashion unencumber time table. Additionally, no volume-selling OEM in 2022 needs to persist with most effective striking any given engine into one motorbike. 

With all that during thoughts, a number of Indian publications are abuzz with purported glimpses at a few of what Enfield has up its sleeve for the following couple of years. As an example, Autocar says that it sees 5 other Himalayan 450 fashions in more than a few phases of construction. The Himalayan 450 is first in line, however different diversifications come with a extra off-road-oriented model, a scrambler, a café racer, and naturally a unadorned side road motorbike. There’s no precise timeline, after all—however those look like relatively affordable extrapolations. 

At EICMA 2022, Royal Enfield formally took the wraps off its Tremendous Meteor 650, which is the newest case of a gadget that used to be strongly rumored for neatly over a 12 months in spite of everything coming to fruition. It’s additionally the primary new motorbike to make use of the 650 Dual engine because the Continental GT 650 and INT 650 have been presented a couple of years again—however it’s most likely no longer the final.  

Communicate of a possible 650 bobber has been swirling, in particular since the SG650 idea got here to gentle at EICMA 2021. Now, Automobile and Motorbike were given a peek at some paperwork that appear to indicate towards each 650cc and 350cc bobbers someplace within the pipeline. Given the velocity at which Enfield has been introducing new 350cc J-platform fashions, it’s in no way tricky to consider {that a} bobber variant may see the sunshine of day someday quickly.  

At this level, after all, it’s all hypothesis—however none of it precisely turns out like a succeed in. Whilst OEM rumors are an ordinary a part of lifestyles in bike international, Enfield’s appear to have a specific knack for most commonly coming true (see the Tremendous Meteor 650 and Hunter 350, simply off the highest of our heads). As all the time, we’ll you should definitely percentage any new knowledge because it involves gentle.
