Royal Enfield is gearing up for the launch of its most powerful, twin-cylinder motorcycles in the Indian market. The company will introduce the Interceptor 650 and the Continental GT 650 in the market. If reports are to be believed, Royal Enfield is also working on a Scrambler motorcycle. This motorcycle will be based on the same Interceptor/Continental GT platform and is expected to feature the 650cc, twin-cylinder engine. A couple of speculative renderings of the Royal Enfield Scrambler 650 have been released online. Read – Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 – All Details
Going by the renderings, it is visible that the Royal Enfield Scrambler 650 could receive a retro-modern styling. Similar to other REs, the motorcycle is expected to ride on 19-inch front and 18-inch rear wheel. The wheels will be wrapped with knobby tyres, while the high-mounted exhaust offers good ground clearance. The renderings also have upside down front forks and twin rear shock absorbers.

Royal Enfield could use all-metal to develop this Scrambler motorcycle and it is likely to offer decent off-road abilities as well. The use of metal could make the Scrambler heavier. A lighter Scrambler will be easier to maneuver in City as well as on the tough terrains. Also See – Upcoming Royal Enfield Bikes In India
The Royal Enfield Scrambler is likely to be powered by a newly developed, 650cc, four-stroke, twin-cylinder engine that also powers the Continental GT and Interceptor. This engine is also likely to power the bigger Thunderbird and Himalayan. Paired to a six-speed gearbox, this engine produces 47bhp of maximum power and 52Nm of torque. The motorcycle is also expected to get slipper clutch.
