    Royal Enfield Goan 350 Name Trademarked – Classic 350 Based Bobber?

    Royal Enfield Goan 350 – Likely to be name of Classic 350 BobberRoyal Enfield Goan Classic 350 will focus on a more comfortable riding stance, best suited for long distance journeysRoyal Enfield has a strong grasp of the 350cc segment with bestsellers like Classic 350, Bullet 350, Hunter 350 and Super Meteor 350. Such a wide range of options are unbeatable by any other brand. Coming soon is the Goan Classic 350 that will further strengthen Royal Enfield’s entry-level portfolio. Goan Classic 350 name is likely to be used for the bobber-style motorcycle that has been spotted on road tests multiple times in recent months.How is Goan Classic 350 different from Classic 350?As the name suggests, Goan Classic 350 will be similar to Classic 350. But the bobber version will have some unique features, one of which will be taller handlebars. This is a signature feature of bobber motorcycles. A taller handlebar is usually associated with greater comfort across long distance rides.Royal Enfield Goan 350 – Likely to be name of Classic 350 BobberHowever, the experience may vary depending on the user’s height and other physical traits. A taller handlebar also offers other benefits such as improved back posture, better control and handling across steeper terrain and greater stability.Goan Classic 350 could also see changes in the seat design and seat height. A test mule spotted recently was seen with a rear pillion seat. This could be made available via a separate variant or as an accessory. The bobber 350 could also have slightly forward set footpegs. Test mule sightings also reveal that Goan Classic 350 will have a different exhaust tip. As a result, it is likely that the exhaust note will also be distinct.Royal Enfield Bobber 350One can also see some cosmetic touch-ups exclusively for the bobber version. For example, one of the test mules was spotted with teal-coloured tyre walls, similar to white-walled tyres. This again is a signature feature associated with vintage motorcycles popular in the 60s. Overall, Goan Classic 350 carries a higher ratio of retro flavour in comparison to other 350cc Royal Enfield bikes.Goan Classic 350 specs, performanceMost of the hardware for the bobber version will be the same as Classic 350. Typical bobber motorcycles have a longer wheelbase. But that’s not the case with the Goan Classic 350. Royal Enfield has favoured a mild bobber look and feel, instead of going for a full-fledged makeover. The latter could have necessitated major tweaks to the platform, which in turn will increase development and production cost. Goan Classic 350 will have the same 1,390 mm of wheelbase as Classic 350.Suspension and braking setup will also be common. Classic 350 has 41 mm telescopic front forks with 130 mm of travel. At rear, the bike has twin-tube emulsion shock absorbers with 6-step adjustable preload. Braking duties are performed by 300 mm disc and 270 mm disc, at front and rear, respectively. Dual-channel ABS is standard. Powering the Goan Classic 350 will be the 349cc air-oil cooled, single cylinder engine. It churns out 20.2 bhp of max power and 27 Nm of peak torque. The engine is mated to a 5-speed constant mesh gearbox. More

    Custom Classic 350 Build Costs Rs. 1 Lakh – Few Harley-Davidson Parts

    Custom Classic 350 BuildThis Royal Enfield custom Classic 350 build costs Rs. 1 lakh excluding donor vehicle and has twin circular headlight and dual jerrycans as highlightsModifications and Royal Enfield almost go hand in hand. The iconic British motorcycle manufacturer is a favourite among modification community in India. With a vanilla design, Royal Enfield motorcycles offer a blank canvas for modders to paint their vision. One such vision is to convert a Royal Enfield Classic 350 into a continental tourer.Custom Classic 350 Build Costs Rs. 1 LakhThe amount of modifications is so extensive, that one can barely recognise it as a Royal Enfield Classic 350. We have seen many mod jobs with design flair. But this custom Classic 350 build stresses functionality and looks purposeful. The total bill for this build is over Rs. 1 lakh (excluding donor vehicle).Donor vehicle for this build is a BS4 Royal Enfield Classic 350 Signals Edition Airborne Blue. This motorcycle is now completely reworked with a black vinyl wrap along with extensive changes and upgrades to create a monstrous looking custom Classic 350 motorcycle with two jerrycans and 16 LED projector auxiliary lights.Owner Satyakam Banerjee was going for a long-tour-friendly version of his Classic 350. When we say long tour, uncharted routes were part of the consideration as well, hence the 2 5L jerry cans. Overall, the build has come out spectacular with a ton of modifications that required custom fabrication along with sourcing parts from Harley-Davidson and Yamaha R15.Before vs after Classic 350 buildThis build is still a work in progress as the owner gets new ideas to execute on his motorcycle. As of now, this custom Classic 350 build includes a fully self-modified headlight area, custom front headlight inner frames made of steel, windshield from Himalayan along with wind extender, custom designed and fabricated instrument console frame among others.Extensive modificationsOther notable mods include front disc brake covers that lend a sleek look, an aero cover for front wheel, front leg guard with LED projector HJG auxiliary lights and tied with black rope, a single-piece 1.5 seat design for comfort, Classic 500’s engine clutch plate and pressure plate, side stand extender, a beefy sump guard and foldable ORVMs with indicators from R15.The two jerry cans finished in black stand out. Himalayan’s windscreen give it a completely different look. Owner has gone with Harley-Davidson’s side vintage number plate along with tail lamps. The main attraction of this build has to be the dual circular LED headlights with protective grills that lend it an animalistic look.Twin circular headlightsInside of the circular cavity of Himalayan’s windscreen, there are auxiliary lights. Speaking of auxiliary lights, there are a total of 16 projector LEDs on this motorcycle. Motorcycle’s original fuel tank, side body panels and other elements are retained. But the swingarm is extended by 2 inches for better highway stability.There are new alloy wheels wrapped with rear 150/90-15 MRF Ralco groove tyre. There’s no rear section and entire build is kept tidy over here. This level of tidiness is susceptible for splashes, though. The K9 Megatron lettering on fuel tank and side panels grab attention as well. More

    Royal Enfield Shotgun 650 Globally Debuts In Los Angeles

    Royal Enfield Shotgun 650 globally debuted at Los AngelesThe same 648cc parallel-twin engine as other RE 650s does duty on Royal Enfield Shotgun 650 globally debuted in LA, developing around 47 hp and 53 NmThe iconic classic motorcycle maker, Royal Enfield, has taken the wraps off Shotgun 650 in Los Angeles, USA. This is the production version of Royal Enfield Shotgun 650, unlike the Shotgun 650 Motoverse Edition launched at Rs. 4.25 lakh (ex-sh), limited to 25 units only. The production version looks very similar to Motoverse Edition, but there are visual differences.Royal Enfield Shotgun 650 Globally DebutsRoyal Enfield is known for its blank canvas approach for modders and custom bike builders to work on. Modders love Royal Enfields as it is the classic motorcycle of choice for many buyers to begin with. Even with Royal Enfield’s 650cc portfolio, there has been extensive custom bike examples that are exemplary in their own way.Now, the company has debuted Shotgun 650 in a multitude of custom shades riding in and around Los Angeles. For Royal Enfield, Shotgun 650 is a celebration of self expression. As we all know, West Coast is known for its mod culture and houses some of world’s greatest custom bike builders.Design of production-spec Shotgun 650 is very close to Shotgun 650 Motoverse Edition that was recently sold to 25 lucky Motoverse 2023 attendees. The bike looks very close to original SG650 concept that was showcased earlier. All the motorcycles that featured in Royal Enfield’s short video were single-seat versions.New Shotgun 650 ColoursThere are four colour options – Stencil White, Plasma Blue, Green Drill and Sheetmetal Grey. This motorcycle can be transformed into a single-seater, souble-seater and a luggage carrying tourer, with pillion seat popping out with a twist of the key.What does it pack?For starters, Shotgun 650 packs the same main frame as Super Meteor 650, but a slightly different sub frame. This is to suit different design characteristics that separate Super Meteor 650 and Shotgun 650. Where powertrain is concerned, Royal Enfield Shotgun 650 packs the same 648cc parallel twin oil-cooled engine as other RE 650s.This powertrain is capable of developing 47 hp of peak power and 52 Nm of peak torque, mated to a 6-speed gearbox. Royal Enfield is offering a slip and assist clutch as part of package. This powertrain has oodles of torque and power reserves for both enthusiastic as well as relaxed and laid-back riding styles.Shotgun 650 anglesComponentry includes USD telescopic front forks and twin shock absorbers at the rear, single disc brake setup at both ends coupled with dual-channel ABS as standard, a wide handlebar for good leverage, 18-inch front and 17-inch rear alloy wheels with tubeless tyres among others. Features include a semi-digital instrument cluster, Tripper screen, all LED lighting, Wingman telematics and many more.As of now, Royal Enfield has not revealed a launch date and final specs are still under wraps. We expect it to launch in early 2024 at a starting price of around Rs. 3.7 lakh (ex-sh) for the base variant.Words from the manufacturerSpeaking about this motorcycle, Siddhartha Lal, Managing Director & CEO of Eicher Motors Ltd., says “The Shotgun 650 is inspired by the work of our custom community and our years of work with them. It is a retro-futuristic interpretation of what a factory custom motorcycle with thoroughbred Royal Enfield DNA would look like. A shape-shifting machine that defies categorization, both in form and in spirit, the Shotgun 650 is something absolutely new and different.Shotgun 650 accessoriesIt is super fun to ride with confidence inspiring ride ergonomics and handles well in downtown city streets, through twisties and powers through straight highways. The Shotgun 650 is our attempt to bring niche and newer categories of motorcycles to growing enthusiasts of self-expression”. More

    2025 KTM 390 Adventure Spotted In Production-Spec Guise – New Himalayan Rival

    2025 KTM 390 AdventureRoyal Enfield New Himalayan is the natural enemy of upcoming 2025 KTM 390 Adventure that may go on sale in 2024 or early 2025The boom in lifestyle ADV motorcycles is currently on the rise. This popularity is very strong even with single-cylinder range 300cc to 500cc segment. We recently saw Royal Enfield launching the new Himalayan. KTM seems to have sharpened its testing of Himalayan’s arch rival, 2025 KTM 390 Adventure with more off-road worthy hardware this time around.2025 KTM 390 Adventure Spotted TestingCurrent gen 390 Adventure is among the popular ADVs in India. It is more of a high-riding adventure tourer, than an off-roader. KTM recently gave it a few off-road bits like wire-spoke wheels (19-inch front and 17-inch rear). This added the off-road capability of this touring machine. However, 2025 KTM 390 Adventure looks as if it is built from the ground-up, to go off-road.We can see minimal body panels too, that reduce visual bulk from current 390 Adventure significantly. Overall motorcycle looks a lot more meaner and purpose-built than a sophisticated-looking current gen model. This is thanks to KTM’s 450 Rally inspired design language.We can see KTM’s new design language transformed slightly to fit into ADV genre. The fascia has a strong presence, accentuated by twin projector headlight setup, flanked by inverted horse shoe shaped LED DRLs. here is an aerodynamically optimised windscreen, that may feature adjustability too. There are beefy knuckle guards that add to overall appeal.2025 KTM 390 Adventure Production GuiseThere is a large beak up front, which is a characteristic of an off-road motorcycle. Seat height looks accommodating and offers riders a commanding upright stance. Footpeg positioning should aid standing and riding as well. Chiseled fuel tank looks like it offers enough grip to hold on to the motorcycle.Componentry and powertrainsThe main frame looks like it is lifted straight off 390 Duke. However, there may be certain tweak to suit off-road character. Rear subframe seems to be new and the test mule spotted abroad has a single-seat setup. Tail section has been kept minimal and purposeful as well, with twin pod LED tail lights and split grab rail.USD telescopic front forks are from WP. Rebound and compression adjustability along with long suspension travel are expected from this setup. Rear suspension is taken care of an off-set mono-shock setup that may feature rebound and preload adjustability. Swingarm is unique and looks sturdier than the one seen with recently launched 390 Duke.Tail section with under-belly exhaustExhaust setup is identical to that of 390 Duke, which is an under-belly setup. This could have been an up-swept unit to enhance water wading capability. KTM seems to be offering 21-inch front and 18-inch rear wire-spoke wheels. Instrument cluster seems to be the same TFT unit from 390 Duke, but positioned more appropriately for an ADV.Powertrain-wise, we can expect the same 399cc liquid-cooled DOHC 4V engine, mated to a 6-speed gearbox. This engine will have a different tune than 390 Duke, making around 45 bhp and 40 Nm. 2025 KTM 390 Adventure will be manufactured by Bajaj in India and launch might happen in 2024. This recent test mule looks production-ready, as opposed to unfinished previous prototypes. We expect a 390 Enduro model, also spotted testing.Source More

After we had shown the SG650 Concept at EICMA in 2021, it gathered huge interest from international custom builders and consumers, so much so that we decided to build it as a production motorcycle. The motorcycle is built by the same team that designed the Concept and is therefore remarkably close to the concept.It retains the cast aluminium nascelle, chopped fenders, angular bodywork and that confident, aggressive stance. At the heart of this motorcycle is the simplicity of its form and the pure metal composition that is testament to its inspiration – custom culture. The Shotgun 650 offers a perfect canvas for experienced builders as well as for someone who is just starting on their journey of customization.” More
