Siddhartha Lal, the CEO of Royal Enfield’s parent company, Eicher Motors has posted a teaser video of the Royal Enfield 750 in his Instagram account.
The caption says- “07.11.17 #RoyalEnfield #ridepure #EICMA” indicating the global debut of the much-awaited motorcycle. The bike will be unveiled at the 2017 EICMA show held from 7th to 12th November in Milan, Italy. The video shows two motorcycles tackling two corners on a race track. One can also hear the distinct sound of the meaty twin cylinder thump. The two motorcycles could indicate the possibility of two variants of the bike. The variants were spied in August. However, there is no official information as of now.
Lal and Rudratej Singh, President, Royal Enfield released a teaser image of the bike in September. The upcoming motorcycle has been spied numerous times; and it is evident that the motorcycle is capable of sustaining triple-digit speeds effortlessly. An ABS variant of the bike was also spied in August.
The powerplant is a 750cc parallel unit with oil cooling and fuel injection. The engine reportedly features a 270-degree crank for optimal refinement and will be highway worthy. The downtubes of the double cradle frame hold the longitudinal radiator. The bike gets dual black exhausts, and the tyres are likely to be Pirelli Phantom Sportscomp. For suspension, the bike employs traditional forks at the front and dual gas-charged shock absorbers at the rear. Brakes include discs on both ends, with ABS at least as an option.
The Royal Enfield 750 will go head-to-head with the Harley-Davidson Street 750, and the bike is likely to cost around INR 4 lakh. It would be the fastest and the most powerful Royal Enfield to go on sale.
