Royal Enfield has taken the Himalayan 450 to create the Flat Track 450, a motorcycle with racing genes and a lot of fun

Royal Enfieldpresent in the past London Bike Shed Moto Show 2024took advantage of his time at the well-known event to present one of his latest creations, the Flat Track 450. A frame of which, at the moment, we do not know more details than the images published on their social networks by Mark Wellshead of Product Strategy and Industrial Design at Royal Enfield.

Will there be Royal Enfield Flat Track 450 in “civilian version”?

It is clear that, just by taking a look at the design of this Flat Track 450, we could draw some important conclusions about the possibility of whether a street version of the model could finally be marketed. Among other things, because the Indo-British firm uses for its development the platform that currently gives life to its new Himalayan 2024.

This is not the first time we have seen this approach used by the brand. Previously, he did the same with the flat tracker FT411, based on the previous generation of Himalayan. Now with this Flat Track 450 They raise the possibilities of use a notch thanks to the addition of top-level components, very similar to those used by their sports team in the DTRA Twins Flat Track.

These similarities are essentially transferred to the tire or suspension equipment, with a forceful inverted front fork and rear monoshock almost in a horizontal position. Its stylized silhouette is composed of a single upper piece, made of carbon fiber, that surrounds the shapes of the seat.

Other relevant details in this Flat Track 450 are, for example, the use of Maxxis tires, racing exhaust system with lower side outlet, or a handlebar focused on practicing this discipline. Everything suggests that the propeller used remains unchanged from the specifications approved by the Himalayan 450 itself.

This translates into a displacement of 451.65cccapable of generating 40 HP at 8,000 rpm and deliver a maximum torque of 40 Nm at 5,500 rpm. If we add to this the low weight that a motorcycle of this type would approve, we are sure that fun would be guaranteed in almost any terrain or circumstance.

Flat Track 450, the new Royal Enfield frame derived from the current Himalayan 2024

Although the brand has not provided conclusive data on this Flat Track 450, it is possible that it ended up becoming a reality, taking into account Royal's present and future plans. These involve creating a wide range of models, using their current platforms, covering the largest number of segments within the two-wheeled sector.
