650cc Royal Enfield Scrambler caught testing in India

The new scrambler could use the engine from the Continental GT 650 and Interceptor 650.

Royal Enfield is believed to be working on multiple new models based on its 650cc platform, including a cruiser and scrambler. The latter has now been spotted testing in India.

The spy images feature a test bike that looks like a typical scrambler. The bike has a round headlamp with a short windscreen, a teardrop-shaped fuel tank and a flat seat.

Interestingly, this particular test bike is equipped with an upside-down fork suspension at the front. It has dual shock absorbers at the rear and rides on wide-spoke wheels shod with dual-purpose tires.

The 650cc scrambler is expected to be powered by the same 649cc parallel-twin engine offered on the Continental GT 650 and Interceptor 650. This engine develops 47 BHP and 52 Nm and is paired with a 6-speed gearbox via a slipper clutch.
