The Royal Enfield Classic 650 will use the same engine as the other 650cc motorcycles. It is a 648cc parallel twin unit that churns out 47PS and 52Nm.

There is no hiding the fact that Royal Enfield is working on a lot of new motorcycles to be launched in the near future. The brand’s latest launch was the Shotgun 650, which is the fourth motorcycle to join the 650cc lineup. We already know that the brand is also working on two more 650cc motorcycles that will be launched in the Indian market soon. One of them will be the Classic 650 which will be the most affordable motorcycle in the manufacturer’s range.

The name of the bike will be ‘Classic 650 Twin’ as the manufacturer has filed a new trademark for it. The Royal Enfield Classic 650 Twin can be expected to be launched in the coming months.

Earlier spy shots confirmed that the styling would be similar to the current Classic 350, but the dimensions would be larger as the bike would be based on the platform of the Shotgun 650. However, there would be several changes to make the bike more affordable. For example, it uses telescopic forks at the front and double shock absorbers at the rear.

Once launched, the new 650cc motorcycle will be called the Classic 650.

The headlamp is the same LED unit we have seen on the new Royal Enfield bikes. It is not the brightest in the segment and most people would like to get additional lighting solutions for their motorcycles. However, there is a small cover above the headlight that we have seen on 350cc bikes and halogen pilot lamps. The turn signals were standard halogen units with orange lenses.

The exhaust looks similar to those found on the Shotgun 650, but is finished in chrome instead of being blacked out. The same goes for the engine. The black powder coated case has been replaced with chrome ones. The fenders appear to be shared with the Super Meteor 650, but the rear number plate housing and tail lamp are different. The bike rides on spoked wheels with tube-type tires, which means repairing a deck will be a pain. However, alloy wheels should be available on higher variants or as an official accessory.
