Rumour: Royal Enfield working on electric bike

  •  

According to media reports, Royal Enfield could be working on an electric bike that could join the product line-up in the future.

According to Vinod Dasari, CEO, Royal Enfield, the company's UK Technology Centre has built an electric prototype based on an existing product.

Back home in India, Royal Enfield is updating its line up to comply with the BS6 emission norms. Rumours suggest that the 500cc engine might be discontinued. It is believed that upgrading this engine may not be viable due the high cost and low volumes.

On the other hand, the 350cc engine could be replaced with a new motor altogether.
