Recently, there has been a lot of Royal Enfield Meteor news. Prototypes of the Thunderbird successor have been spotted several times in a short time. This indicated that the bike could be in the last stages of testing and, hence, would be the next product to come out of the Chennai-based motorcycle company. However, as per a new development, Royal Enfield’s next launch could be another motorcycle codenamed J1D.

The Royal Enfield Meteor launch is expected to happen sometime during mid-2020.

Just like most of the automobile companies, Royal Enfield also allocates internal codenames to its upcoming products. For example, Royal Enfield Meteor is believed to be internally called the J1C0. Similarly, the company has given a codename J1D to one of its forthcoming motorcycles.

Nothing about the Royal Enfield J1D is known except for the launch timeline and the codename itself. It is being said that this model will be launched in April 2020.

Recently, Royal Enfield filed trademark applications for two new names - Flying Flea and Roadster. In the past, the company had also done the same for Sherpa and Hunter. While registering the names doesn’t actually confirm the arrival of a new product, speculations are being made that one of these four names could be used for the J1D.

It is being anticipated that Royal Enfield would use a smaller engine, perhaps, a 250 cc mill, in the J1D. In fact, J1D might be a more affordable Himalayan 250 that would be more accessible to a younger and less experienced audience. On the other hand, Royal Enfield having steered cleared of low-capacity bikes so far makes us doubt about such 250 cc Royal Enfield bike speculations.
