The new Royal Enfield Scrambler 650 has been spotted testing on Indian roads. The test mule looks production-ready and the unveiling is most likely a few months away. Interested buyers can expect the Scrambler 650 to be priced in the Rs 3.5 lakh (ex-showroom) range. A few days ago, the company launched the updated Continental GT 650 and the Interceptor 650. Besides, it also had launched the Super Meteor 650 earlier this year in India, which receives upside-down front forks. And now, the latest spy shots of the new Scrambler 650cc bike without a disguise have surfaced online that provide details related to its powertrain, styling, and features.
