Royal Enfield has patented a new name for a future motorcycle, the "Guerrilla 450." Although there is limited information available about this motorcycle, it is believed that the 450cc platform will be used as its base. According to market sources, the Guerilla 450 is expected to be a more off-road-focused version of the Himalayan. Market reports also suggest that the future bike will likely have more tyre resilience, front and rear wheel travel, and increased ground clearance than the forthcoming Himalayan 450, making it more equipped to handle dangerous terrains.
It appears like Royal Enfield has prepared an entertaining end-of-the-year for its Indian fans based on the approaching launches. In particular, it will introduce the eagerly anticipated Bullet 350 on September 1 and the highly anticipated Himalayan 450 on November 1. While there is still some time until these launches, let's look more closely at what we can anticipate from the bike with a name that has recently been registered in the nation.
Royal Enfield Guerilla 450: Key Details
According to market reports, the new "Guerilla 450" bike may have an updated style and come in stealth and camo paint finishes. The upcoming bike is anticipated to have a number of features, including all-LED lighting, Bluetooth connectivity, upside-down front forks, a fully digital instrument console, a slip-and-assist clutch, and off-road ABS.
Even though there are no official specifics, it is anticipated that the bike will use the identical brand-new, 450cc, single-cylinder, air-cooled engine as the new Himalayan 450. Peak outputs of this motor are predicted to be around 40bhp and 37Nm. A 6-speed gearbox is further anticipated to come paired with this unit.
After the Himalayan 450's launch, which is scheduled for November 1, further information on this new motorcycle is anticipated to become available.
