It’s no secret that Royal Enfield is working on a 750cc motorcycle for sale in both India and Europe. The bike has been extensively spotted in the country, sometimes in different avatars. Until now, we’ve thought that the manufacturer is just experimenting with their design but now it seems that there is more than one model on its way.
Two Royal Enfield 750cc models have been spotted together in India. Though the bikes sport different design and practicality levels, they seem to share most mechanical features.
Here are some of their details:
RE 750 Continental GT (Café Racer)
Out of the two, this is the variant (left) that has been spotted most extensively. The bike shares its design with the current 500cc Continental GT and looks good. It gets features like circular headlamps, sporty single seat, chiselled fuel tank and dual exhaust canisters.
Mechanically, there are telescopic forks at front along with disc brakes at both ends. Gas charged shock absorbers do braking duties at the rear. ABS should be provided at least as optional.
RE 750 Street-tourer (Classic) variant
Royal Enfield seems to have taken a leaf from Triumph for this variant and it’s my favourite out of the two. It has a very classic touch and feels better suited to hold the legendary ‘Royal Enfield’ brand name.
The bike shares its front fascia and rear with its sibling but seems to be more ergonomic. Royal Enfield is probably seeing a capable tourer in this one, and the bigger (different) fuel tank, bench seat, raised handlebar and comfortably placed foot pegs confirm this. Its rear view mirrors have been given a dfferent position as well.
RE 750 Engine
Powering the RE 750 is a 750cc parallel twin cylinder engine with a 270-degree crank. Though its figures have not been revealed yet, we are expecting something similar to the Harley Davidson Street 750.
