Royal Enfield Developing A New Entry-Level Motorcycle – Report

Royal Enfield is working on a wide range of new motorcycles starting from an entry-level Classic to a 650cc Cruiser. A new media report claims that Royal Enfield is working on an all-new entry-level brand, codenamed J1C1. The new brand is reportedly to be launched in the country before the end of this year.

The J1C1 is reportedly to be called the Royal Enfield Hunter. This motorcycle will be powered by the same 350cc engine that powers the Classic 350 and the Meteor 350. In fact, the bike will share most of the components with the Classic. It will be introduced as an easy-going urban modern retro motorcycle.

The report further claims that the company will launch a new entry-level motorcycle, codenamed J1C2. It will be the brand’s most affordable motorcycle, and is likely to be priced under Rs 1.3 lakh. The new entry-level Royal Enfield is likely to be based on the Bullet 350’s platform, not the new J-Series architecture that is used to develop the new Meteor 350 and the Classic 350. This will help Royal Enfield to keep production costs down.

The new entry-level motorcycle is likely to be equipped with disc brakes along with single-channel ABS system. Instead of LED lights, the J1C2 could get halogen lights. The bike could get semi-digital instrument console and a single-seat. It could also miss out on RE’s Tripper navigation system.

Details about the engine specifications are yet to be revealed. It could share the 346cc, air-cooled, single-cylinder engine with the Bullet 350. This engine is capable of producing 19.4PS of power and 28Nm of torque. A 5-speed gearbox driving the power to the rear wheel will come as standard.

Royal Enfield is also working on 3 new 650cc motorcycles including the Super Meteor 350, Shotgun 650 and an all-new 650cc cruiser motorcycle. Adding to it, the company will also launch a new 450cc adventure motorcycle – RE Himalayan 450.
