What he is sketching definitely is a Cafe racer. And the book he has in front of him has the Continental GT on the right page, and the Interceptor on the left. So Interceptor is definitely the legend that is coming back.

But I wonder why he would sketch the Cafe racer, as the CGT is already on sale... An all new CGT perhaps?

Isn't that a little too close to the Harley Davidson Street 750? It is priced around 6L OTR. (5.14L ex-showroom).

Anything above 3.5Lakhs, I might as well buy a pre-owned HD Street 750!! 4.5Lac (i.e. 2lac premium for a single cylinder and ABS) is too much! Imagine spending 4.5lac for Himalayan level quality. Classic 350's are not too far behind. Considering the Japs sell their 300/320's for less than 3.6 Ex Showroom anything less than 3.5lac ex showroom will be sweet pricing for the Inteceptor/CGT 750. Seriously hope they don't screw up the pricing.

The recent tweet by official Royal Enfield Twitter handle has a video that says “one heart, two souls ”. Looks like two versions are going to be released. A cafe and a retro? Fingers crossed!

Yeah and if you notice the graphic jpg it shows one as cafe racer with a longer tank and the other one looks like a cruiser. Wait is for another two days.

According to reports, the new 650cc engine is oversquare. While that is corroborated by its peak power figures coming in at a non-REish 7100RPM, it would be interesting to see how they've managed to make that engine sound (yes I've heard the sound in the teaser video, but that's the sound of two engines running together); whether the tone is akin to any of the other products from their brand. Nevertheless, I hope this engine is relatively more free-revving and sees action in the Himalayan.

Quote:
The 4-valves per cylinder SOHC fuel-injected engine will make 47PS of peak power at 7,100rpm and 52Nm at 4,000rpm. Compression in a reasonable 9.5:1.
This is great news!

Royal Enfield say the motorcycles are at the pre-production stage and expects them to be ready for the market by April 2018. Royal Enfield says the roll out of the motorcycles will be spread over the calendar year 2018 for all of its markets but India is expected to be amongst the first markets.

So this is the all-new royalenfield 650cc parallel-twin! 47hp@7,000rpm & 53Nm@4,000rpm. 4 valve/cylinder, SOHC, 6-speed gearbox, 270° crank. And then they will price the bike at 4-4.5 L 🤔

Gravy days ahead for RE. The RE cult finally has the answer to the HD and the Triumphs of the world as they have been provided with the missing cylinder, never mind that it makes only about 9 NM torque more than the CGT with a price tag which is twice its current lineup.

All they need is to price it around the 4L mark as mentioned. That would be enough to invite comparisons with cruiser twins of Jap and Brit make. Tech specs mattered little when it came to RE anyways.

So it is a 650cc after all. 47 bhp seems to be a respectable number for Royal Enfield. Guess it will come down to how the 53 Nm of torque is made use of, in real world scenarios. If RE can make it reliable from Day 1, and price it realistically, I think it has a good chance in today's market where everyone seems to be in love with retro bikes.

As far as the two variants are concerned, my guess is - a Cafe Racer, and a Retro Street version (something like the Thruxton and the Bonneville T120).

On a lighter note, is that exhaust manifold leaking already?

So RE has gone the safe way with their twin by just upping the figures slightly from the 535 UCE.

Well, we will have the 100 kpmh stress free cruising which most of us thought the single cylinder will do.

Now to see the bikes they come out with.

Let's just hope it is the polish used to shine the valve cover.

Not just this exhaust manifold, watch Shumi's video, nuts holding the other exhaust manifold flange has already vibrated and come off! All this on a stationary engine?

ON a serious note, I really wonder if these RE bikes will kick off or will they go down just like the Kizashi did from Maruti. There are already very few takers for the himalayan and ConGT anyway.

On paper everything looks spot on - the over square engine will ensure a flat torque curve and relaxed riding from stop-go traffic to highway cruising.
My guess is that they will price it at 4lakh OTR. Looks very ideal for India - and the bike should be niggle free by 2020 after all the external beta testing.
