This particular bike is the café racer-inspired variant with a single seat, tank recesses, and sporty handlebar. The riding position is aggressive, and the rear view mirror is oval for optimal visibility. The rear gets a saree guard as well. One can also see the test equipment wires in the engine portion. The powerplant is a 750cc parallel unit with oil cooling. The engine reportedly features a 270-degree crank for optimal refinement. The radiator is longitudinally mounted on the double cradle frame. The bike gets dual black exhausts, and the rear tyre looks like Pirelli Phantom Sportscomp.

For suspension, the bike employs traditional forks at the front and dual gas charged shock absorbers at the rear. The Royal Enfield 750 will lock horns with Harley-Davidson Street 750, and the bike is likely to cost around INR 4 lakh when it launches this financial year. Expect the ABS variant at an INR 20k-30k premium over the standard bike.
