Royal Enfield Classic 500 based Scrambler rides on off-road oriented tyres and features upswept exhaust muffler.
Royal Enfield is currently busy in upgrading its existing model range to meet the upcoming safety norms. What’s interesting is that Royal Enfield is also working on the Classic 500 Scrambler, which has been spotted testing for the first time. The bike is based on the existing Classic 500 and is likely to feature few mechanical and design changes.
The Scrambler looks nearly identical to the Classic sibling. It features the same fuel tank, suspension setup and side panels that are offered in the Classic 500. On a closer look, it is visible that the motorcycle gets new shorter and narrower front and rear fenders. It also gets a taller handlebar that sports a cross brace available on the Interceptor 650. The tail-lights and turn indicators are sourced from the new 650 twins. Also See – Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 – All Details
The RE Classic 500 Scrambler features off-road oriented tyres. It misses out on rear seat, and features a luggage rack. However, the rack could be fitted with a pillion seat. The bike also has an upswept exhaust muffler, which suits the Scrambler profile. Also See – RE Continental GT 650 – All Details
The new motorcycle features dual-disc brakes and is most likely to be fitted with dual-channel ABS (Anti-Lock Braking System) as standard. It is powered by the same 499cc, single-cylinder, air-cooled engine that produces 27.6bhp of power at 5,250rpm and 41.3Nm of torque at 4,000rpm. The ABS equipped Classic 500 is priced at Rs 1.99 lakh. We believe that the Scrambler could be priced slightly higher than the standard variant.
