Royal Enfield 750 cc spied testing for the first time

The Royal Enfield 750 cc twin-cylinder motorcycle which is due for next year has started testing in Spain. Along with the Himalayan, the upcoming product will lead the Indian retro classic bike maker’s proceedings in the coming years.

As expected, the new flagship Royal Enfield is largely based on the Continental GT cafe racer’s platform.

The prototype uses Continental GT’s bodywork.

The early prototype employs makeshift fuel tank (borrowed from the Conti), spoke wheels, front and rear disc brakes, triple pod instrument cluster, circular headlamp, cafe racer style seat with stopper, twin silencers, and an exposed chassis.

The final production version is expected to look significantly different from this early prototype. RE’s UK technical centre and its subsidiary Harris Performance are leading the development process.

The engine appears to be a parallel-twin unit. The displacement is estimated to be around 750 cc and we expect it to be paired with a 6-speed transmission. The motorcycle will be positioned to take on retro classics like the Triumph Bonneville.

The motorcycle employs traditional suspension setup.

The prototype appears to be using carburetors at this stage instead of fuel injection but the final production version is most likely to employ the superior technology as it’s nearly impossible to comply with international emission standards with carburetors.
