Royal Enfield Classic 500 Scrambler caught testing


The Royal Enfield Classic 500 Scrambler has been spotted testing on public roads for the first time.

The spy images suggest that the new Scrambler is likely to be based on the Classic 500. The most prominent changes include off-road tyres, telescopic front forks with rubber gaiters and an upswept exhaust. The test bike has a single seat. However, it appears to have a provision for mounting the rear seat.

Reports suggest that the Classic 500 Scrambler could get a BS-VI ready 499cc, single-cylinder engine. In its current version, the engine produces 27.2 BHP @ 5,250 rpm and 41.3 Nm of torque @ 4,000 rpm and is mated to a 5-speed transmission. The test bike is equipped with disc brakes at both ends.
