Royal Enfield has been churning good sales volumes in the Indian market for a long time now. The company is one of the most sought after brands in the two-wheeler space of the country. The Chennai-based manufacturer concentrates on the mid-displacement segment of motorcycles between 300cc and 700cc.
In December 2021, Royal Enfield was able to sell 65,194 bikes across India which was marginally less than the same month in the previous year when the company sold 65,492 units. This resulted in a YoY decline of 0.46 percent. In November 2021, the sales figure stood at 44,830 units which translated to an MoM growth of 45.42 percent.

2022 Royal Enfield Shotgun 650cc BobberRoyal Enfield is planning to launch atleast 3 new motorcycles in the 650cc segment this year
The upcoming 650cc motorcycles from Royal Enfield have been generating quite a bit of buzz on the internet of late. These motorcycles have made numerous appearances on social media in recent months – via spy shots.
Atleast 3 new 650cc motorcycles from Royal Enfield are expected this year. One is the Cruiser 650, second is Super Meteor 650 and third is Shotgun 650. Of the three, it is the latter which has now been spied. Images are credited to automotive enthusiast Deepthi, who spotted the test mule on the outer ring road in Chennai.
Royal Enfield 650cc Bobber SG650
Royal Enfield showcased the SG650 bobber concept at the 2021 EICMA show in Italy last year. It looks like the Bobber version of the Super Meteor 650. The test mule that has been spied, has its rear fully covered.
Shotgun 650 possesses all the styling elements usually associated with a modern classic motorcycle from Royal Enfield. It features neo-retro styling elements such as a round headlamp, a teardrop-shaped fuel tank, single seat, dual exhaust in chrome finish and broad rear fenders.
2022 Royal Enfield Shotgun 650cc Bobber
The motorcycle offers a typical low-slung bobber stance which should offer comfortable riding ergonomics thanks to a low saddle, a wide handlebar pulled inwards. All this should enhance its credentials as a modern bobber.
Mechanical Specs & Features
Powering Shotgun will be a familiar 648cc parallel-twin motor that already propels Interceptor 650 and Continental GT 650. This power mill kicks out 47 bhp and 52 Nm of peak torque and is paired with a 6-speed gearbox via a slipper and assist clutch.
Differences arise in the hardware department where Shotgun 650 is seen suspended on upside-down forks at front instead of conventional telescopic forks on the other 650 Twins. Rear suspension unit features twin shock absorbers as usual. Braking will be handled by single disc brakes at both ends with ByBre calipers aided by a dual-channel ABS as standard.
In terms of features, Shotgun 650 is expected to boast an all-LED illumination, a USB charger and a semi-digital instrument console. The instrument console should come with a Tripper Navigation Pod which displays turn-by-turn navigation when paired with the Royal Enfield App on the rider’s smartphone via Bluetooth.
RE Shotgun 650 Launch
Launch timeline is not officially revealed. But considering that the motorcycle showcased at EICMA was a near-production ready unit – one can expect the launch to take place in the second half of 2022. Royal Enfield aims to launch 4 new motorcycles every year. This year, their first motorcycle is expected next month, in the form of Himalayan Scram 411. More
Yezdi Roadster. Image – Biker Prakash ChoudharyBoth Yezdi Roadster and Royal Enfield Meteor closely match each other’s specs and prices
Classic Legends recently brought the Yezdi brand back to life by launching three motorcycles under its anvil- Adventure, Scrambler and Roadster. All three bikes hold distinct identities in the brand’s lineup. With this launch, Classic Legends has thrown in another dice to take on the supremacy of Royal Enfield in the 250-500cc motorcycle segment.
While Adventure locks horns with Royal Enfield Himalayan, Scrambler will rival the upcoming Scram 411 from the Chennai-based bikemaker. On the other hand, Yezdi Roadster appears to take on Meteor 350. This story focuses on how both these motorcycles stack up against each other, on paper of course.
Royal Enfield Meteor 350 Vs Yezdi Roadster
When it comes to design, both motorcycles feature a low-sling cruiser-like stance with a new-retro design theme. While Yezdi has stayed clear from terming it as a cruiser, Royal Enfield is happy to call Meteor one. That said, neither of the bikes can be called proper cruisers and more roadsters trying to be cruisers. Meteor gives a slightly more cruiser feel due to its wide and tall handlebar as opposed to the low-set handlebar in Roadster.
That said, both motorcycles receive centre-set footpegs which give better ability to maneuver than a traditional cruiser and a comfortable riding posture. Both flaunt a neo-retro styling theme with common elements such as round headlamps, teardrop-shaped fuel tanks and circular turn tail lights, turn indicators and rearview mirrors. Roadster looks slightly bulkier than Meteor thanks to the broader fenders in the former.
Royal Enfield Meteor 350 vs Yezdi Roadster
Meteor is powered by a 349cc single-cylinder air-cooled SOHC motor whereas Roadster is propelled by a smaller 334cc single-cylinder, liquid-cooled DOHC motor. Despite being at a disadvantage for a smaller cubic capacity, Roadster extracts more power and torque from its engine. While the engine in Meteor kicks out 20.2 bhp and 27 Nm of torque, the one in Roadster pumps out 29.7 bhp and 29 Nm of torque.
As far as dynamics are concerned, both motorcycles are underpinned by a similar dual-cradle frame. Chassis on both bikes are suspended on telescopic forks upfront and twin shock absorbers at rear. In terms of braking, both motorcycles utilise disc brakes at both ends aided by a dual-channel ABS. While Yezdi offers a larger front disc of 320mm, Royal Enfield provides a larger rotor of 270mm at rear.
Meteor offers a more accessible saddle of 765mm as compared to a 790mm seat height of Roadster. However, Roadster is slightly more nimble at 184kg in comparison to 191kg of Meteor which should translate to sharper handling. Meteor also features a larger 15-litre fuel tank as compared to a 12.5-litre tank in Roadster that should provide a longer range to Meteor.
Royal Enfield Meteor 350 vs Yezdi Roadster
Features and Price
In terms of features, Roadster gets all-LED lighting in addition to a semi-digital instrument console. It, however, misses out on Bluetooth connectivity and turn-by-turn navigation which is offered as standard in Meteor. The latter also gets LED DRLs, an LED taillight and a USB charger.
Coming to prices, both motorcycles are very closely priced to each other but Roadster offers a slightly lower starting price of Rs 1.98 lakh. On the other hand, prices for Meteor start at Rs 2.01 lakh (both prices ex-showroom). More
Image – SKRYezdi Adventure matches spec to spec with its closest competitor Royal Enfield Himalayan
Classic Legends recently revived the Yezdi brand by dropping three bombs- Scrambler, Roadster and Adventure. Out of these three, Adventure is garnering a lot of attention for the sheer fact it looks so similar to Royal Enfield Himalayan which also happens to be its nearest rival.
Like Himalayan, Yezdi Adventure is also a purpose-built adventure bike and it shows in its design. Apart from their design, these two bikes are comparable to each other in a lot of ways. This article reflects how the new adventure bike from Classic Legends in the block stack up against an old seasoned rival, at least on paper.
Royal Enfield Himalayan Vs Yezdi Adventure – Specs
Starting with the powertrain, Himalayan obviously receives the larger 411cc SOHC engine which is surprisingly less powerful than the 334cc DOHC unit powering the Yezdi. While the former kicks out a peak power of 24 bhp, the latter pumps 30 bhp of maximum power. However, Himalayan does receive an advantage of slightly more torque which is achieved at a lower rpm than the Yezdi ADV.
While Royal Enfield offers a 5-speed gearbox, Yezdi utilises a 6-speed unit on its adventure bike. This should help the latter cruise on triple-digit speeds for longer durations. That said, Himalayan has a much simpler setup with its air and oil cooler as opposed to a liquid cooler in Adventure.
Royal Enfield Himalayan vs Yezdi Adventure
When it comes to adventure motorcycling, dynamics of a bike is a very crucial aspect. While Himalayan is underpinned by a Half-duplex split cradle frame, Adventure is based on a dual cradle frame. Both frames are suspended on conventional telescopic forks up front and a mono-shock. Further, both suspension units on both motorcycles offer the exact same travel of 200mm and 180mm at front and rear respectively.
Both bikes offer an identical ground clearance of 220mm, however, the saddle of Himalayan is more accessible at 800mm as compared to 815mm in Adventure. On the flip side, Yezdi is lighter at 188kg as opposed to 199kg of Himalayan. Both bikes ride on 21-inch front and 17-inch rear wire-spoked wheels shod with dual-purpose tubeless tyres. In the braking department, Adventure offers a slightly larger disc brake at front.
Features on offer
In terms of features, Yezdi Adventure is the clear winner with a longer list of gizmos. For starters, Yezdi receives a fully digital instrument console as compared to Himalayan’s semi-digital unit. Both bikes receive Bluetooth connectivity and turn-by-turn navigation, however, Yezdi gets three ABS modes (Road, Off-road, and Rain). Himalayan instead gets a switchable ABS. Yezdi also receives full-LED lighting which Himalayan misses out on.
Royal Enfield Himalayan vs Yezdi Adventure
Coming to prices, boh bikes are precariously closely priced, however, the Royal Enfield is slightly more expensive than its Yezdi counterpart. Prices for Himalayan start at 2.14 lakh whereas Adventure is available at a starting price of Rs 2.10 lakh (ex-showroom). On paper, Yezdi Adventure certainly offers more value for money in comparison to Royal Enfield Himalayan. More

At the start of new year, Royal Enfield has increased prices of its motorcycles including Continental GT 650 and Interceptor 650. The latest round of price hike is likely due to increase in production cost.

Key features include round headlamp and rear-view mirrors, fork gaiters, minimalistic profile, semi-digital instrument console, classic spoke wheels, upswept exhaust and liberal use of chrome highlights.
Both bikes share the same 648cc, parallel twin, air/oil cooled motor that generates 47 bhp of max power at 7,150 rpm and 52 Nm of peak torque at 5,250 rpm. It is mated to a 6-speed constant mesh transmission. Chassis comprises a tubular steel frame with bolted trussing, integrated with 41mm telescopic front forks and twin coil-over shocks at rear.

Upcoming Royal Enfield 650cc bikes
To provide more options to enthusiasts in 650cc segment, Royal Enfield is working on at least two new 650cc bikes. One of this will be a cruiser, likely to be named as Super Meteor 650. Second model is a Classic-styled 650cc motorcycle, likely to be named as Shotgun 650. Both bikes will be using the same engine as that of Continental GT and Interceptor. Launch is expected later this year. More
Image – An ExplorerIt is likely that increase in input costs has prompted Royal Enfield to hike prices of its motorcycles
In line with industry trends, Royal Enfield has increased prices of its motorcycles in the first month of the year. Global supply chain has been adversely impacted due to pandemic, resulting in shortage of several raw materials and components. Shift to stricter emission norms is also responsible for price hikes in automotive space.
Royal Enfield Prices Jan 2022 – Classic 350, Meteor 350
Royal Enfield’s top-selling bike Classic 350 has witnessed a price hike of up to Rs 3,332. Classic 350 starting price is now Rs 1,87,246 for Redditch variant. New prices of other variants are Halcyon (Rs 1,95,125), Signals (Rs 2,07,539), Dark (Rs 2,14,743) and Chrome (Rs 2,18,450).

Percentage increase was in the range of 2.34% to 2.43%.
No new changes have been introduced for any of these Royal Enfield bikes. New-gen Classic 350 was launched last year with several enhancements including a new chassis and new engine. It has resulted in significant improvements in terms of reduced vibrations and ride dynamics. The first Royal Enfield bike to benefit from these updates was Meteor 350 that was launched in November 2020.

As part of its long-term strategy, Royal Enfield is working to launch an average of one new/updated product every quarter. One of these is Royal Enfield Himalayan 450, which is expected to be available for sale in first quarter of 2023. Although the basic silhouette looks familiar to Himalayan 411, Himalayan 450 utilizes an entirely new platform.
Royal Enfield Himalayan 450 styling and features
Codenamed K1, Himalayan 450 comes across as a premium Adv bike. It can emerge as a viable alternative to the likes of KTM 390 Adventure, BMW G310GS and other similar Adv bikes. The core Himalayan DNA is retained, as evident with features such as round headlamp and rear-view mirrors, raised front fender and matching frame construction.
Use of spoke wheels, shod with knobby tubeless tyres is another feature that’s common to both bikes. Himalayan 450 is likely to use 21-inch front and 17-inch rear wheel, the same setup as that of current Himalayan.
Just like Himalayan 411, users can expect relaxed riding ergonomics with Himalayan 450. It’s made possible with features such as centrally placed footpegs, thick saddle and pulled-back, wide handlebar. Upswept exhaust in metallic finish is another similar looking feature.
Royal Enfield Himalayan 450cc Render
In terms of things that give Himalayan 450 a unique identity, the bike gets a compact windscreen, trendier fuel tank design, and single-piece seat. It could be equipped with a new digital instrument console. The bike is likely to ditch much of the exoskeleton that can be seen with Himalayan 411. For users who may need it, the front and rear rack could be offered as an accessory.
Royal Enfield Himalayan 450cc – engine and specs
Powering Royal Enfield Himalayan 450 will be a liquid cooled, single cylinder motor that generates 40 bhp of max power. Just like other Adv bikes, Himalayan 450 will focus on delivering better performance in low and mid-range. As of now, torque for Himalayan 450 has not been revealed.

Royal Enfield Himalayan Scram 411 – Production SpecRoyal Enfield Scram 411 is expected to be slightly affordable than the current Himalayan when launched
Among the next big launches from Royal Enfield, Scram 411 holds huge significance. Essentially a road-biased version of the current Himalayan, Scram is expected to be slightly more modest in its approach as far as adventure touring is concerned.
Test mules of the upcoming bike have been spotted testing on multiple occasions in recent times. The scrambler has been spotted yet again in a production avatar just ahead of its launch. Latest spy shots are credit to Dr Firoz Khan.
Even though it will carry forward the same underpinnings from Himalayan, it will be more directed towards customers who wish to travel long distances on tarmac. The latest spy shots further highlight variations between Himalayan and Scram.
Himalayan Scram 411 Red – Updated Styling
While the current Himalayan offers a distinct presence on roads, the upcoming Scram 411 is rather subdued. Scram misses out on a few styling attributes which provide Himalayan the ADV appeal. For starters, Scram doesn’t feature a windscreen upfront and the signature exoskeleton which gives its ADV sibling an overall rugged appearance.
Royal Enfield Himalayan Scram 411 – Production Spec
Ergonomics of Scram also appear to be slightly different than that of Himalayan with a slightly repositioned handlebar. Similarly, the tail section also seems to be redesigned with respect to the positioning of the taillamp and rear turn indicators. Other styling highlights include revised front and rear mudguards, a side-on upswept exhaust canister, a single-piece seat, fork gaiters, single-piece grab rail and a round headlamp.
The motorcycle rides on 19-inch wire-spoked wheels on both ends instead of a larger 21-inch front unit in Himalayan. We expect the wheels to be wrapped around by block pattern, dual-purpose tyres so that the bike is able to carry out some amount of soft roading. A rear luggage carrier will most likely be offered as an accessory to augment its touring capabilities.
Powertrain, Hardware Specs
Scram 411 will be powered by the same 411cc single-cylinder air-cooled SOHC engine that propels Himalayan. However, earlier reports have mentioned that this motor could be equipped with a liquid cooler in Scram 411. In its current air-cooled avatar, this engine makes 24.3 bhp at 6,500rpm and 32 Nm of peak torque at 4000-4500rpm. This motor will be mated to a 5-speed gearbox.
Suspension setup of the motorcycle will comprise conventional telescopic forks upfront and a mono-shock at rear. However, the setup will be tweaked for slightly more road-friendly mannerisms. Braking will be carried out by disc brakes at both ends which would probably be aided by dual-channel ABS. Another feature expected to be on offer is the Tripper Navigation pod on the instrument console.
