Rumour: TVS working on a Royal Enfield 650 rival

TVS is said to be developing a twin-cylinder engine with a capacity of around 600-750cc.

According to a media report, TVS is working on a new halo model that could compete with Royal Enfield’s 650cc range of motorcycles.

The report states that TVS has partnered with a European company to develop the new motorcycle. It is rumoured to be powered by a twin-cylinder engine with a capacity of around 600-750cc. Although TVS has been tight-lipped about the project, work is said to be already underway.

Royal Enfield, which offers bikes in the 350-650cc range, has been rapidly expanding its portfolio. In addition to the Interceptor and Continental GT, the 650cc line-up now includes the Super Meteor 650 cruiser, while a roadster is on the way.

It is said that middleweight bikes have a higher profitability and hence, it would make sense for TVS to enter this segment. At present, the Apache RR 310 is the brand’s flagship, which means it cannot satisfy the needs of customers who are looking for an upgrade.

The report does not mention a timeline for the launch of TVS’ twin-cylinder motorcycle.
