Motoring portal Bikewale has published new details about the Royal Enfield Trials.
The Trials motorcycles would receive many updates over the standard 350 and 500 variants. The fascia, for example, gets a headlight grille that is available in either Chrome or Black, depending on the model. The shock absorbers at the front get black fork gaiters that are aimed to protect the oil seal from any damage. The front fender gets a shortened finish. The fuel tank gets a badge that is similar to the unit that occupies the space on the Interceptor INT 650.
Royal Enfield has used a generous amount of chrome for various panels such as the front fender, rear-view mirror housing, blinker mounts, oval box, battery box, and the brake pedal. The long list of accessories would be available with the motorcycle to enhance its capabilities on and off the tarmac. The list would include handlebar brace kit, rear seat cover and touring seats among others.
To distinguish the two models, Royal Enfield 350 Trial would receive red paint for the frame while the Trial 500 would get an olive green finish.
There is no mention of mechanical specifications in the leaked information, and thus we would assume that they remain unaltered from the standard models. The 346cc, single-cylinder, air-cooled motor delivers 19.8 bhp of power and 28 Nm of torque. The 499cc single-cylinder, air-cooled engine puts out 27.1 bhp of power and 41 Nm of torque. Both the motorcycles use a 5-speed gearbox.
The Trials 350 and 500 were spotted during their pre-launch test runs, and the photographs revealed details like an upswept exhaust and a rear parcel rack.
The upcoming motorcycles, similar to the rest of the Royal Enfield products, would receive a dual-channel ABS. The added equipment would affect the pricing, and we expect the Bullet Trials 350 to arrive close to the INR 1.70 lakh price range. The 500 variant, on the other hand, could retail for approximately INR 2 lakh – both ex-showroom Delhi.
