Royal Enfield is preparing to launch a new product in the crowded 400cc two-wheeler market. The company is extensively testing this upcoming neo-retro naked roadster on Indian roads ahead of its slated debut. As a more expensive and potent alternative to the entry-level Hunter 350, it is rumoured to be called the Guerrilla 450. In a recent development, the bike was spotted being tested once again in its production-ready avatar. It will likely share several mechanical parts and components with the most recent Himalayan 450. Once it goes on sale here, expect it to rival the likes of the Triumph Speed 400, Husqvarna Svartpilen 401, Hero Mavrick 440, Harley-Davidson X440, and KTM 390 Duke.

Royal Enfield Guerrilla 450: Design Elements

The fresh spy shots of this much-awaited Royal Enfield model have given us a better look at it. In terms of design, it will have a single-pod instrument console, a spherical LED headlight, and a single-piece seat. Although it seems to have the same tail layout as the Himalayan 450, the Guerrilla 450 might have a different instrument cluster, given that it's likely to have a competitive price point.

The offset fuel filler is a unique design element that differs from the Himalayan's centrally located filler. The Guerrilla's roadster profile will have a reduced fuel tank size, unlike the Himalayan 450's 17-litre tank.

Royal Enfield Guerrilla 450: Engine and Gearbox

Similar to the Himalayan, the bike will draw power from the 452cc liquid-cooled single-cylinder Sherpa series engine. This unit churns out 40Nm of peak torque at 5,500rpm and 39.4bhp of maximum power at 8,000rpm. The motor will be paired with a six-speed unit with a slip-and-assist clutch. 

Royal Enfield Guerrilla 450: Suspension

The Royal Enfield Guerrilla 450 will include an offset mono-shock for the rear suspension and 17-inch black alloy wheels. The total wheelbase and the travel of the telescopic front forks are expected to be reduced. The motorcycle will use disc brakes both at the front and rear for braking duties, along with dual-channel ABS. 

Royal Enfield Guerrilla 450: Features

The Guerilla 450 is expected to come equipped with features like a 5-inch circular TFT screen with connected technology, such as app-based navigation, LED lighting for the headlamp, indicators, taillights, and an updated switchgear. Other features like a side-mounted exhaust unit, ride-by-wire throttle, and various ride modes are also expected. Given that it will weigh less than the Himalayan and will have suspension adjusted for the road, it is likely to have excellent touring capabilities. It is further expected to have strong low- and mid-range performance similar to that of the Himalayan.
