Upcoming Royal Enfield Scrambler 650 spotted
From the Himalayan 450 and Classic 350 Bobber to Shotgun 650, Royal Enfield is working on a range of new motorcycles. The upcoming 650 platform-based Scrambler 650 is one of its much-awaited motorcycles. Interestingly, it was recently spotted testing once again. Notably, the prototype model equipped with extra accessories appears to be near-production ready.
New Royal Enfield Scrambler 650: Highlights
The Scrambler 650 appears to have drawn inspiration from the Interceptor 650 in terms of design. However, it features several distinctive styling and mechanical elements. For reference, the Scrambler 650 bears a single-sided exhaust instead of two units like the INT 650, Continental GT 650, and Super Meteor 650.
The new batch of spy shot shows scrambler-specific design elements for the Scrambler 650, such as a ribbed seat, semi-knobby tyres, a bash plate, and auxiliary lights. Furthermore, the Scrambler 650 prototype is fitted with a few accessories, such as a small tinted fly screen and a headlight grille. Meanwhile, the auxiliary lights could also be a part of a new range of accessories.
New Royal Enfield Scrambler 650: Features and equipment
The upcoming Scrambler 650 is likely to benefit from an LED headlight, Tripper navigation, up-side-down front forks, twin rear shocks, dual-channel ABS, and a single disc at the front, among others.
New Royal Enfield Scrambler 650: Engine
The new Scrambler 650 will be powered by a 648cc, parallel-twin, air/oil-cooled engine mated to a six-speed gearbox. This motor makes 47.6PS and 52Nm of torque. While Royal Enfield tuned up this engine for the Super Meteror 650 to suit its character, the brand may also tune it up again for the Scrambler 650.
