Classic 650, the new access twin on Royal Enfield's horizon

Royal Enfield It continues to register new commercial names and among them, one of the most popular was the Classic 650. Now the Indo-British brand ends up positioning it as a possibility for the coming months, after requesting registration of the model on May 9.

As we have learned from our Ride Apart colleagues, Royal Enfield has just registered the Classic 650 in the Intellectual Property Office of India. As we have seen in the recent past, the brand remains faithful to its plan to diversify its current range, including this variant as a possible novelty.

Royal Enfield Classic 650: New entry model to the brand's Twin range

It is clear that Royal is clear about the plan to follow in the coming years, and this involves generating countless variants on their current platforms. As we know, we have today 350, 450 and 650 options, at least on our Continent. On these we find various models such as the Hunter, Super Meteor, Himalayan or Classic.

The latter is currently marketed on the “three and a half” platform, and is equipped with a single-cylinder engine of 349cc and long stroke with air-oil cooling that declares 20.2 HP at 6,100 rpm and 27 Nm of torque at 4,000 rpm. In some way, we are looking at the frame that we could call the brand's access step.

Everything suggests that Royal Enfield plans to do something similar based on its current 650 range. It currently has up to four models with which to satisfy the needs of fans:

  • Royal Enfield Shotgun 650 2024
  • Royal Enfield Super Meteor 650 2023
  • Royal Enfield Interceptor INT 650 2023
  • Royal Enfield Continental GT 650 2023

That is why the arrival of a Classic 650, It leads us to believe that the brand would be thinking about including a fifth model in this range. In addition, it is very likely that this became the access option to the current Twins offer that Royal Enfield has. This translates into a classic-cut motorcycle equipped with simple equipment.

As we have seen previously, in some of the articles where we have shown you test mules related to this Classic 650its most important parts, would be closely related to the Super Meteor 650, positioning itself as a simpler variant than this.

In this way, the Classic 650 would equip a conventional instrument panel, front telescopic fork or simpler and more economical finishes. But always maintaining the philosophy printed on the brand's Twin models, where its 648 cc twin-cylinder engine declares 47 HP of power and 52.3 Nm of maximum torque.
