More spyshots & more details of Royal Enfield Guerrilla 450

Written by News Team

The much-anticipated Royal Enfield Guerrilla 450 has been spotted again, and the latest spy shots reveal more details about this upcoming motorcycle.

The Guerrilla 450 is based on the Himalayan 450 platform. The new images give us a better view of the motorcycle, which appears to be closer to a production-ready model. The design elements of the Guerrilla 450 mirror the structure of the Himalayan 450. However, the Guerrilla 450 lacks the additional mounts for luggage and panniers, emphasizing a more streamlined, urban-focused design.

The motorcycle features a single-pod instrument console, a round LED headlight, a large fuel tank, and a single-piece seat. It remains to be seen if the single-pod console will be the same TFT available on the Himalayan or if Royal Enfield will opt for a more affordable alternative to keep the cost low.

While the Himalayan uses spoked wheels and a set of tube tyres, the Guerrilla 450 has alloy wheels, allowing it to go tubeless. It also ditches the USD fork found on the Himalayan for a gaitered telescopic fork4. Though much hardware is shared between the two, Royal Enfield seems to have set up the Guerrilla 450 primarily for road use, judging by the difference in its hardware4.

The Guerrilla 450 will be powered by the same Sherpa 450 engine Royal Enfield uses for the Himalayan. In the Himalayan, this 452cc single-cylinder motor produces 40 bhp and 40 Nm of torque and is mated to a 6-speed gearbox.

Upon launch, the Guerrilla 450 will rival the Triumph Speed 400, Honda CB300R, Husqvarna Svartpilen 401, TVS Apache RTR 310, and KTM 390 Duke.
