Royal Enfield 650cc Flat Track motorcycle broke cover at the recently concluded 2019 EICMA motor show. The bike prototype has been developed in collaboration with Harris Performance.
For people not in the know, Eicher Motors that owns Royal Enfield had brought the British company Harrier Performance four years ago.
Sharing its platform with the RE Interceptor 650 and the Continental GT 650, the Royal Enfield 650cc Flat Track motorcycle features a new box-section swingarm and an Ohlins monoshock suspension instead of the regular the twin shock absorbers unit.
The flat tracker runs on bigger 19-inch wheels with RDS traction race rims, which are CNC machined from forged billet aluminium. It gets Dunlop flat track tyres and S&S silencers.
The chassis and its parts have been especially manufactured by Harris Performance such as the front forks with 41mm right-side-ups running Ohlins 30mm valving.
The Royal Enfield 650 Flat Tracker derives its power from a big bore kit developed by the renowned American motorcycale engine and parts engineer and manufacturer – S&S Cycle.
The displacement of the motor has been increased to 750cc. It has a custom ECU (engine control unit) that’s mapped to deliver the best of both upgrades.
The flat tracker has 3D bodywork with in-house molds and carbon layer by Scorpion Composites and P3 Composites. The fuel tank has a separate aluminium vessel positioned below the body shell.
