Royal Enfield ‘Classic Scrambler’ launch soon?

Written by Parichay Malvankar

Well, many of us have been waiting for the Royal Enfield Twins to hit the Indian showrooms. But seems like the brand has something extra up in their sleeve. Although not a very ideal new product, this could spice things up a bit, for Royal Enfield themselves. A new model, which looks like a Scrambler motorcycle was recently spotted at a Royal Enfield facility.

Now, it is unclear if this was a one off modification, or a new product which the brand is readying to a market debut. No other image or any details about this product have leaked so far. Looking at the side cover, you can clearly make out that this new Scrambler is based either on the Classis 350 or Classic 500.

Spyshot reveals that the new Royal Enfield Scrambler will get knobby tyres, a raised handlebar, upswept exhaust pipe, single sear, rear luggage mount, rubber fork covers and that’s about it. All other cycle parts are shared with Royal Enfield siblings.

The RE Classic 350 is powered by a 346cc, single-cylinder, twin-spark, air-cooled motor producing 19.8 BHP of power and 28 Nm of torque. The Classic 500 is powered by a 499cc, single-cylinder, air-cooled, FI motor producing 27.2 BHP of power and 41.3 Nm of torque matched to a 5-speed gearbox.

Let’s wait and watch if this Royal Enfield Scrambler, either 350 or 500 does exist. Either more leaks will follow, or a market debut. Or we can just term this as a one off modification job and forget it.
