The Royal Enfield Bobber is all set to be unveiled at the EICMA 2018, later today. Ahead of the official unveiling, the design silhouette of the V-Twin engine Bobber has been teased by the company.
A quick edit of the image reveals the twin exhausts, the masked engine area, and a single header pipe from the front. This confirms that the Royal Enfield Bobber Concept will have a V-twin engine. A report from November 2 claimed that the bike will be powered by an 834 cc, V-twin, liquid-cooled engine, and it will reportedly pump out 80-90 bhp of maximum power.
The new engine has been developed in collaboration with Polaris Industries. The company, which owns Indian Motorcycles, had an alliance with Eicher Motors (Royal Enfield’s parent). The powertrain is reportedly BS-VI compliant and has been developed in the UK at the respective technical centres of Royal Enfield and Polaris.
Coming back to the motorcycle, the Royal Enfield Bobber Concept is reportedly under early development phase and will be launched sometime in 2020. Royal Enfield is currently gearing up to introduce the 650 twins in India, scheduled for 14 November.
The edited image of the Royal Enfield Bobber Concept reveals that the bike will come with an LED headlight with DRLs, an extended fuel tank, chopped fenders and a single-cantilever seat. Close inspection reveals that the concept bike will feature girder forks up front and a mono-shock at the back.
The Royal Enfield Bobber Concept rides on machined alloy wheels at both the ends. Braking components include twin rotors at the front and a single disc at the back. The motorcycle features a slightly raised handlebar and probably a digital instrument cluster.
According to an August 31 report, Royal Enfield is working on 12 new motorcycles across 4 new platforms – J, P, Q and K. The new 834cc, V-twin engine is reportedly based on the K platform, which will spawn bikes that will rival the Harley Davidson and Triumph counterparts.
