Royal Enfield is spending much time and money on developing and introducing several new models in the coming years with the introduction of two new engine classes in the range of 250cc to 750cc, a top official from Royal Enfield has spoken.
Recently, pictures were caught on the internet of the highly rumored and much anticipated RE Himalayan undergoing testing. The Himalayan is said to have a 400cc heart and wears the tag of an adventure bike. There were also rumors about a RE continental GT that was caught with a 750cc engine but with no further details. A total of Rs 500 crore has been earmarked for development, expansion and research on products as well as creation of technology development centres across India and the UK.
Hinting at possible launch of new models, the company said that they would not shift from their core values of creating performance bikes that are reliable and that which can be affordable and not lean towards the idea of creating extreme performance bikes. However, with much of the action happening in India, RE, with its new expansion program, is looking toward developing products that are viable in the international market. Export figures are on the rise as well, with RE managing to send 2,342 units to overseas markets.
Royal Enfield in its history had made significant changes in the construction of its powerplants, beginning with the Cast Iron engine, the AVL engine (AVL is an Austrian engine maker) during the 1995's and later, and currently with the UCE or the Unit Construction Engines. Although no clues are left to be picked up about the details of the new engines, RE promises that their new products would be made with the aim of being globally renowned and achieving leadership in the international market.
