This isn’t a RE-paid page. However, as you all know, any Royal Enfield-related news generates a lot of buzz. This time, it is the Royal Enfield Classic Scrambler. The vehicle was spotted at the ARAI facility sometime back and now it is out on the road going through the test rigors. Since the word ‘Classic’ is being used, it is quite obvious that the motorcycle is based on the Classic twins currently available. Let’s delve deeper into the details of this motorcycle.
Royal Enfield Classic Scrambler observations
It shares a lot of parts with the Classic range. Even the upswept exhaust was at one point of time offered with the range. Guess, it has become optional now. Cycle parts like the front forks, disc brakes, fuel tank headlights, instrument cluster and more are shared as well. However, changes include the revised and shorter front as well as rear fenders. The handlebar too has a cross brace to it, just like the Interceptor. A slightly knobby patterned tyres are also used and we believe these are 18-inchers as well. The major change though will be that the rear seat has been removed and in its place a luggage rack will come.
Suspension of the new Royal Enfield Classic Scrambler will be slightly revised. More often than not, the Scrambler machines are seen as off-road tools. Mechanically, the motorcycle will continue to be powered by an air-cooled single cylinder 500cc engine that will be good for 28PS of power and 41Nm of torque. The gearbox will continue to be a 5-speed unit. There will be dual channel ABS on offer as well. Expect this Scrambler model to be priced around the Rs 2.10 lakh ex-showroom mark. We believe the launch will happen in February 2019.
