A new motorcycle range of 750cc Royal Enfield, which is in one of the major projects of the Chennai-based manufacturer, has been captured once again. This time, it was seen with the really needed or the top of the line safety feature- Anti-Lock Braking (ABS) system.
Two such Royal Enfield motorcycles with larger displacement engine have already been observed in the country, earlier. Well, there is not much information about the bike, but the spy shots reveal that the bike is developed on a redesigned Continental GT frame with traditional shock absorbers at both ends. Disc brakes in alliance with ABS are also there to serve braking force. While the muscular single seems able to transmit peak torque in the vicinity of 50-60Nm.
The emergence of a completely new motorcycle this year had already been confirmed by the Royal Enfield’s top honcho, Mr. Siddhartha Lal, last year while announcing the company’s result announcement for Q2, FY 2016-17. The launch of this new RE will be a great move from the manufacturer as it will help them to approach a wider range of audience, not only in India but also globally. This can be a threat to the segment leader, Harley Davidson Street. As of now, Royal Enfield Indian line-up comprises of motorcycles in 350-500cc engine and Rs 1.5-2.0 lakh price range.

In a meet with a media person, Mr. Siddhartha Lal revealed,”It will be absolute highway worthy and therefore it will bring us out of a niche segment in a lot of faster international markets. Even in markets like Brazil and all, where we are going to, which have quicker roads than India, our futuristic motorcycles will help us in being extremely highway-friendly and worthy.”
Apart from this, a new production line and R&D center from the manufacturer are also in question, as they are investing heavily. In terms of sales, Royal Enfield is witnessing exponential growth over the years.
In the current scenario, the pricing is not a matter of question in the Indian market. And, it is quite clear with the sales of renowned international manufacturers such as Ducati, Harley Davidson, Triumph, Suzuki, Honda and Yamaha that is on the rise. So, the introduction of new variants with the powerful engine and costlier price tag is logical. Also, it will help the Royal Enfield in expanding its market share, worldwide.
