It is rumours all over the websites. This time the rumours have swallowed the premium motorcycle manufacturer of the country, Royal Enfield, that the company is thinking about a quarter litre bike. We can't neglect the source, because the demand of 250cc bikes are increasing day by day. So why not if RE get into the 250cc class?
Since the entrance of Kawasaki Ninja 250R in the Indian two-wheeler industry, the segment witnessed some good changes. The market saw the coming of higher engine machines rather than being a 100cc industry. After the arrival of the Ninja 250R, the Indian market witnessed several motorcycles ranging 110cc, 125cc, 150cc, 160cc, 180cc, 200cc, 220cc and 250cc. So we must conclude that the introduction of 250cc motorcycle is always a renaissance to the industry and to the manufacturing firm too.
So let's hope some big revolutions in the market with the introduction of 250cc motorcycle from RE. Still, the company hasn't commented anything regarding this scoop.
Since the introduction of UCE (Unit Construction Engine) in 2007, Royal Enfield motorcycles have gained increasing demand over that past 5 years. The Classic 350 is the most successful machine since the UCE generation. Due to the overwhelming demand, the delivery delay of the Classic 350 has even topped to unbearable 14-months. This showcases the revolution made by the world's oldest motorcycle firm which is still in production.
As the firm plans to introduce a 250cc bi-wheeler, the entire RE fans are eagerly to see what type the machine would be. Will that be a cruiser or a traditional bullet? Unfortunately there is no clue sourced.
The pricing of the bike is still unknown. Nevertheless, the price tag would be very much competitive to rival Bajaj Avenger 220. Being branded from the home of Royal Enfield, the Avenger 220 never comes as a worm opponent against the journey of the RE's upcoming quarter liter machine. Having only a 250cc engine, it is assumed to be priced under Rs. 1Lakh. Then that would be tougher for Hero Karizma, Bajaj Pulsar 220, and Pulsar 200NS. Because, if the 250cc RE is priced under Rs. 1 lakh, that is really a tempting tag for customers. What will they go for? A current generation motorcycle or a traditional motorcycle, that will exist all the years? Of course the traditional machine and that is Royal Enfield.
Let's patiently wait for the big day when RE roll out its quarter liter machine in the Indian shore.
Expected to be priced under Rs.1 lakh.
