Royal Enfield 750 spotted in two variants

  •  

The upcoming Royal Enfield 750cc was spotted in two variants in latest spy images. It looks like the bike will be available in two distinct versions - cafe racer and standard.

The images reveal a cafe racer style version that could perhaps be the Continental GT 750. It gets a unique fuel tank with knee recesses and a single seat. The bike also features clip-on handlebars and foot pegs positioned for a more sporty riding position. The rear foots pegs have been replaced with heel plates as well.

The standard bike is designed for highway cruising. The position of the foot pegs and raised handlebars suggest, it will have an upright riding position. It gets a regular seat and a conventional fuel tank.

Both versions of the bike are rumoured to be mechanically identical when it comes to the engine, suspension and brakes. The 750cc air and oil-cooled engine shared between the two has twin exhausts - one each side. Some media reports suggest that the cafe racer will get Pirelli Sport Demon while the standard bike could ride on Pirelli Phantom Sportscomp tyres. The 750cc engine is not available on any of the Royal Enfields currently on sale in India. Both the bikes sported single disks at the front and rear along with similar looking front shock absorbers. 

There is no word yet on the India launch date however the 750cc Royal Enfield could debut by early 2018. That said, we might get our first look at the bike in November when it is expected to be unveiled at EICMA.
