Royal Enfield has been testing a range of motorcycles across different body styles, including the new 450cc roadster, which according to a leaked document, will to be called Gurrilla 450. In fact, the name of the motorcycle has officially been registered. Here is everything you need to know about the upcoming 450cc Royal Enfield.

Royal Enfield Gurrilla 450: Design

The Gurrilla 450 has already spotted testing on numerous occasions, including a production-spec test mule, revealing several details about its design. The latest spy shot suggests that it is likely to get a smaller and slimmer fuel tank. However, the frame, swingarm, and engine casing could be borrowed from the Himalayan 450. It is no doubt that the Gurrilla will share components with its elder sibling. Other key highlights include a round LED headlamp, scooped-out seat similar to the Himalayan 450, and alloy wheels with tubeless tyres.

Royal Enfield Gurrilla 450: Features & specifications

Unlike the Himalayan 450, the spy picture of the upcoming Gurrilla 450 suggests that it is expected to be outfitted with telescopic front forks with fork gaiters. Additionally, to keep the cost competitive to make it as compelling as possible, Royal Enfield could skip ride modes and the circular TFT display. It may get an analogue console like the Super Meteor 650 and Shotgun 650 instead. That being said, the Gurrilla 450 is likely to get ride-by-wire, dual-channel ABS, single discs at both ends, and 17-inch wheels.

Royal Enfield Gurrilla 450: Engine & power output

Powering the Gurrilla 450 will be the same 452cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled DOHC engine. However, it is not confirmed yet whether it will make the same power as the Himalayan - 40PS at 8,000rpm and 40Nm at 5,500rpm. We expect the brand to tune up the motor as well as the six-speed gearbox to suite its character.

Royal Enfield Gurrilla 450: Price

The price of the Royal Enfield Guerrilla 450 is expected to start at Rs 2.40 lakh and go up to Rs 2.6p lakh. In contrast, the Triumph Speed 400 costs Rs 2.34 lakh (ex-showroom), H-D X440 has priced between Rs 2.74 lakh and Rs 2.94 lakh (ex-showroom), and 2024 Husqvarna Svartpilen 401 comes with a price tag of Rs 2.92 lakh (ex-showroom).
