Royal Enfield’s Himalayan 450 platform will spawn many new models and significant among these will be the 450 Roadster. A mule of the same has been spied testing recently under heavy camouflage and although the test bike revealed nothing major on the styling, one apparent giveaway was the teardrop fuel tank on the bike. The headlamp unit on the testbed bike was akin to the one on Super Meteor 650 and the Himalayan 450. Further, the LED set-up for both the tail lamp and turn indicators looked quite good even as the bike was heavily disguised to keep things confidential to the maximum extent possible.

This upcoming 450 Roadster will use the platform of Himalayan 450 although RE will make alterations to help the underpinnings fit the proper Roadster credentials. The development mule used telescopic forks and monoshock at the front and rear respectively and featured 17-inch alloy wheels on both ends. USD would be ideal on this bike if it wants to compete with rivals. The braking power will be highly upgraded from the current 350 unit as well.

RE 450 Roadster Slash Hunter Could Be Incoming With A MONOSHOCK!

Royal Enfield 450 Hunter will come with a single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine with 450cc on tap and it will be interesting to witness how much power and torque would be available to prospective buyers. We guestimate that the performance of the bike will be similar to what the bike delivers in the Himalayan 450. The name of this upcoming Roadster is still under wraps although it could be called Hunter 450. The pricing of RE 450 Roadster will be revealed very late this year and it could be priced between Rs 2.5 lakh and Rs 3 lakh.

RE is also working on the Scram 450 and Cruiser 450 that will go against the Triumph Scrambler 400X, Husqvarna Svartpilen 401 and Dominar 400 respectively. The Royal Enfield 450 Hunter will finally take the fight against the Triumph Speed 400, Harley Davidson 440X and Hero Mavrick 440. Royal Enfield couldn’t be left far behind when it comes to more power and it is trying it the old school way against very sophisticated rivals. Source
