Royal Enfield Classic and Bullet are entering 2017 in new colours

Your favourite touring companion – The Royal Enfield Classic, and the loyal – Bullet 350, are having a colourful entry into the New Year and ironically, they looks even the more retro and chic.

In 2016, the Classic range saw exciting and bold colours like the Battle Green, Squadron Blue, Desert Storm and the Classic Chrome. And for 2017, it is getting more youthfull.

Both the 350cc and the 500cc Classic motorcycles will get this update that comes in three new colour palettes: Red, Blue and Green. The Red and Green are borrowed from the Continental GT. The Blue however is new. It’s more of a Blood Red, Sky Blue and Leaf Green, and is restricted only to the tank section. The rest of the elements including both front and rear fenders, battery box, headlamp unit and levers will be as black as night.

Surprisingly, all sorts of vinyl graphics or stickerings including the coach lines will be omitted for the new colours and just the branding will be kept in white. Trust me, this clean look will get you addicted to it. What’s also new for 17’ is the saddle. It is freshly trimmed and has a crisp white piping running along its seam. This makes the motorcycle look more vibrant and animated, and you can go along clicking colourful photos along with it. Score!!

The Bullet 350 however borrows the Blue and Red colours borrowed from its cousin – The Continental GT. It is however not clear if these colours too are only provided to the tank region like the Classic or the entire motorcycle. This will make the Bullet too to look high-spirited and lively.

It might have taken a long period of time, but finally, Royal Enfield has come up with an all new generation motorcycle which completely deciphers the pre-conceived notions attached with Royal Enfields. With the Himalayan, Royal Enfield has carved out a very niche segment of motorcycles, which is indeed a special and exclusive one, yet is the most practical one for the Indian conditions – that of adventure tourers. The segment which was restricted only in the higher end segments with Triumph and BMW Motorrad being the only major players has now become much more accessible, affordable and practical with the Royal Enfield Himalayan.

The Royal Enfield Himalayan is a much more refined and practical motorcycle to live with when compared to the other Royal Enfield motorcycles. It is a motorcycle which promises a lot with its ability of off-road as well as long distance touring, without compromising on the daily duties as well. It indeed is a one-of-its-kind motorcycles currently in the price band to which it belongs right now, but then, some of its attributes are being shared with some other motorcycles. Here in question is the ability of touring, which are already being accomplished by two other motorcycles in its class (apart from the entire Royal Enfield lineup, which will not be discussed here) – Mahindra Mojo and CBR 250R.

Last year, Mahindra did finally put up an end to all the anticipations and doubts revolving around its Mojo project, by launching the much awaited Mojo, which has received rave reviews for its mechanical prowess and long distance touring abilities. Not to forget the Honda CBR 250R, the only fully faired sports tourer in this price, which was the first motorcycle in this price bracket to trigger the want of touring motorcycles with its punchy and refined engine as well as comfortable ergonomics.

In this story, we are going to compare the Royal Enfield Himalayan, Mahindra Mojo and CBR 250R, and find out which motorcycle emerges out to be the best of all the worlds, with the touring abilities being the topmost priority. Here we go:-

In the recent years, the motorcycling segments have become way more mature than ever before. Needless to say, it has led to the dwelling of various new segments and niches which were almost inexistent till yesterday. This phenomenon is more common in the segments of entry level quarter liter segments as well as middleweight sportbike segments, which has seen the arrival of several new players on the Indian soil, which to some extent, have shown excellent results in terms of overall sales and popularity.

Amongst the new segments which have made their presence felt in the Indian market, the segment of tourers and adventure motorcycles definitely needs to be given a special moment. The segment, which is considered to be the most practical among the big sports oriented motorcycles, have shown that the average Indian motorcycling enthusiasts have geared up and have become way more mature than they actually were. A credit of this has to be given to the launch of various new motorcycles in this very segment.

Till now, the segment of tourers was basically confined only to the middleweight segments (600-800cc), which has seen the motorcycles such as Kawasaki Ninja 650, Benelli TNT 600i/TNT 600 GT and the 800cc versions of Triumph Tiger escalating new heights in terms of sales. Witnessing this golden opportunity, various two wheeler manufacturers are moving down in the entry level sportsbike segments, say the 250-300cc category, and have started working on the same.

And the results are quite fruitful too! Honda initiated this with the quarter liter sportsbike, the CBR 250R, which is more of a fully faired sport tourer than a track focused scalpel – a perfect and practical recipe for the bikers obsessed with fully faired machines. Then came the much awaited Mahindra Mojo, which took almost a decade for development till it actually got launched in 2015 and showed good signs of excellence, for the fact that it is the only naked tourer in the quarter liter segment.

And finally, after a lot of speculations, Royal Enfield came up with what was totally unexpected in this segment – a proper fully focused adventure tourer, the Himalayan. Seeing the first impressions, the Royal Enfield Himalayan has finally appeared as the answer to the prayers of all those, who wanted to experience the best of off-roading on two wheels.

In this write-up, we will be comparing the three different motorcycles with varying characters and personas – the Royal Enfield Himalayan, Mahindra Mojo and Honda CBR 250R, which have varying body styles, but there aim is same – to satiate the hunger of all those biking aficionados who want to explore the unexplored terrains, whether on or off road. Here we go.

Mahindra made an honest attempt of showcasing its mettle in engineering prowess when it gave a short preview of its first big bike, Mojo, as a concept in the Auto Expo 2012. For a very new Indian two wheeler maker, this was nothing short of a landmark move, as it was the first foray of Mahindra in a segment which was way above its natural mettle of making 110cc scooters and motorcycles. So, it was no surprise that Mojo created a huge amount of anticipation related to its launch dates, specifications and price range.

Days passed, months passed and even years too passed, but the details of Mojo remained blur most of the amount. The bike was spied a number of times while on the test runs throughout India, but the delay in its official launch gradually began to fizzle out the enthusiasm related to the motorcycle. The year 2015 finally showed some signs with the production-ready version of the motorcycle being spied on test runs nearby the authorized production plant of Mahindra in Maharashtra and then, the news came out that the trial production runs of Mojo had begun.

Finally, putting an end to a lot of rumors and anticipations, Mahindra finally launched the Mojo at a very tempting price and specifications, which make it a worthy motorcycle to live with. The bike is being pitched as a sports tourer – the kind of bikes which are so practical as per the Indian riding conditions but are so less in number. In that case, the Mahindra Mojo will be battling out with the bikes like Honda CBR 250R, Royal Enfield Classic 350 and KTM Duke 200 – all of which are quite different in body type and character, but share one common notion – of being a good tourer.

In this feature story, we will crack out the code of which sport tourer fits the bill of yours when it comes to munch long miles and putting your hard earned money to sign the final deal. Here’s a detailed comprehensive readout of the comparison between Mahindra Mojo, Honda CBR 250R, Royal Enfield Classic 350 and KTM Duke 200.

We have been tracking this story for a long time now that Royal Enfield has been developing a fully dedicated adventure motorcycle for the adventure seeker. The first prototype was spotted couple of times in the past and now these clear images reveal the almost final production ready variant.

Now, this definitely looks like a proper and like I already mentioned earlier dedicated offroading motorcycle, which gets meaty impressive looking off-roading tyres on both its front and rear wheels, while it also gets high placed front mudguards to protect the rider from all the mud and water when they actually take the motorcycle offroad. What is also interesting is that the Himalaya also gets a huge windshield towards the front and raised handlebars; towards the side profile you will also love the upswept exhaust pipes which give it a proper offroading appearance. Take a look and the motorcycle and it also appears to be less bulky too which will help the rider maneuver the motorcycle in complicated situations. This motorcycle seems to be too serious about its off road image and will mostly appeal to the adventure seeker. This motorcycle also borrows the fuel tank from the Continental GT café racer, while the headlamps and the instrument cluster seem to be completely new unit.

This motorcycle will most probably be powered by either a 410 cc unit or a more powerful 750 cc twin cylinder unit. Both these engines are developed newly and Royal Enfield has actually invested a whooping 500 Crore behind developing this new technology.

Expect the new motorcycle from Royal Enfield to be priced around the 2.5 Lakh mark when it is finally launched in the Indian market.

Recently GaadiWaadi was able to click some spy images of the motorcycle being tested on India roads although this was only a test mule but what really caught the attention was the new exhaust which obviously looked chunky and up swept while the earlier test mule had a Continental GT type straight exhaust. The other noticeable features definitely included a raised handlebar and an upright sitting position for more comfort while the headlamp and instrument cluster units looked like they have been borrowed from the café racer Continental GT. Spoked wheels with fat rear tyres, a huge petrol tank and offcourse! Thunderbird styled taillamps were some other highlights of this test mule. The rest of the noticeable features included disc brakes on both front and rear wheels for better stopping power, short rear mudguard and an impressive monoshock suspension setup towards the rear which will definitely be seen for the first time on a Royal Enfield motorcycle.
