Upcoming Royal Enfield Scrambler 650 spotted testing, Launch likely in 2024
The upcoming Royal Enfield Scrambler 650cc has spotted testing once again. Royal Enfield is expected to officially launch the Scrambler 650 around mid-2024.
The upcoming Royal Enfield Scrambler 650cc has spotted testing once again. The automobile maker has been working on the 650cc Scrambler for quite some time now. This time the test mule was spied without any covering or camouflage. Reports have suggested that this could be the close to being production-ready version of the bike. This hints that the official launch of the bike could be coming closer.
The test mule was seen with nearly finished body panels and seems to be based on the same platform as the existing Interceptor 650. However, the company seems to have made many changes including new spoke wheels and the front forks. The spoke wheels seem to between a 19-17-inch combination. They are surrounded by block-pattern tyres. Also, The Scrambler is suspended by upside-down forks, instead of telescopic front forks. However, the rear continues to be suspended by dual springs.
The upcoming Royal Enfield Scrambler 650cc sports an updated frame and a single-sided, two-into-one exhaust canister instead of the dual exhausts, which is seen in other models in the 650cc category.
Other features of the 650cc Scrambler include a full-LED lighting setup, a ribbed-pattern seat, oval-shaped side panels, an offset single-pod console, and a taller handlebar. The bike will continue to be powered with RE’s 649cc, parallel-twin, air/oil-cooled engine. It will be paired with a six-speed gearbox.
Royal Enfield is expected to officially launch the Scrambler 650 a few months after introducing the much-anticipated Himalayan 452 around mid-2024. The bike will rival the Moto Morini Seiemmezzo 650 Scrambler.
