Royal Enfield Classic 650: what it will look like

Royal Enfield is one of the oldest motorcycle manufacturers in the world still in production. RE is popular around the world for its modern, retro-looking motorcycles. The Royal Enfield Bullet and RE Classic are among the brand’s most popular models. Royal Enfield has been working on several new motorcycles lately. Last year they launched a brand new 350cc Meteor motorcycle and now they are working a few other models as well. Royal Enfield will bring more 650cc motorcycles to the market. If Royal Enfield released a 650cc version of the Classic motorcycle, what would it look like? We have a render that shows exactly that.

The rendered image was shared by the IAB on their website. The artist reworked the existing 350 version of Royal Enfield Classic a bit and created a render to show what it might look like. Although Royal Enfield is working on several new models, they have yet to confirm that they will be bringing a Classic 650 motorcycle to the market. In the rendered image, the front telescopic suspensions have been replaced with USD forks.

Other than that, no major changes can be seen in the front of the bike. It might even have an LED DRL inside the headlamp. It will be similar to what we saw on Meteor 350. All chrome parts on the bike have either been blacked out or removed. Only the exhaust and some other parts are chrome. The engine is completely blacked out. The 650cc engine we saw on the Interceptor 650 and Continental GT 650 can be seen here. The fuel tank retains the same shape as the Classic 350 with the Royal Enfield branding on it.

The seats are separate and there is a chrome grab bar included for the passenger. By moving to the rear, the taillights were replaced with new units. The turn signals and taillights are on the rear fender and are similar to what we saw on the Meteor 350 which launched in year one. The exhaust gets a chrome finish but is different from that seen on Classic 350. Much like the Interceptor 650, Continental GT 650 or the upcoming 650cc cruiser, the Classic 650 motorcycle is also expected to receive two tailpipes.

The other change on the bike will be its dashboard. It will be similar to the Interceptor or maybe even the next cruise bike. It will be fitted with the Royal Enfield Tripper meter that we see on other Royal Enfield motorcycles these days.

As the 650cc engine is heavier, some modifications will be made to the bike’s frame to support the weight. The motorcycle seen in the article is only a product of the artist’s imagination and if Royal Enfield ever launches a 650 cc version, there are possibilities that, it could be different from the one seen in the ‘picture. The Royal Enfield Classic 650 will be powered by the same 648cc parallel twin engine that generates a maximum of 47hp and 52Nm of torque.
