Royal Enfield to launch most models yet in FY2022

Royal Enfield to launch most models yet in FY2022

The Royal Enfield 650cc cruiser is expected to go on sale in FY2022.

Royal Enfield is preparing to launch the most motorcycles it ever has, in FY2022.

  • Royal Enfield Shotgun and Scram trademarked
  • Updated Classic 350 to be one of the first launches
  • 650cc cruiser will also likely go on sale in FY2022

In a recent conference call with analysts, Vinod Dasari, CEO, Royal Enfield said, “this year (FY2022) will probably be the highest number of new models that you have ever seen from Royal Enfield being launched in a year and that's the beginning of the pipeline. There's a whole bunch that is happening and we are truly excited about it.”

Multiple sightings of the updated Royal Enfield Classic 350 in production-ready form leads us to believe that it will be one of the many launches the company has planned. The Classic will be updated with the J-platform engine that made its debut on the Meteor 350. It will also feature semi-digital instrumentation, a tripper navigation pod and more.

Royal Enfield has also trademarked names like Sherpa, Hunter, Roadster, Shotgun and the Scram. While it isn’t known which upcoming bikes these names belong to, what we do know is that Royal Enfield has two upcoming cruiser models equipped with the 650cc, parallel-twin from the Interceptor and Continental GT 650.

The Scram trademark also hints at an off-road oriented machine, possibly on the 650cc platform, but there have been no sightings of a test mule backing this up yet. Royal Enfield also appears to be working on a Jawa Forty Two rival that’s based on the aforementioned J-platform.
