Royal Enfield, one of the oldest bike brands in the country, has been on a roll in recent times. The brand is working actively on new bikes to add to its current portfolio.
Here we have a report that the company intends to introduce four more 350cc bikes to the Indian two-wheeler market in the next two years. It has already debuted two 350cc motorcycles in our country, the Classic 350 and Meteor 350, in the past year. The next four bikes will be built on the company’s new J platform.
While speaking in an interview, Royal Enfield’s CEO, Vinod K. Dasari, has already announced that the brand has a plethora of bikes in its pipeline. He went on to say that the brand intends to release a new model every quarter, implying that at least 28 new motorcycles would be released over the next seven years. This is done to boost its position in both domestic and foreign markets.
As per the sources, there’s also the new Bullet 350, codenamed J1B. This model will be the replacement for the existing Bullet 350 and Bullet 350 ES. There will also be a bobber based on the Classic 350. J1H is the codename for this forthcoming bike, which will have a single-seat, bobber-styled tall handlebar, and white wall tyres. This bobber will be the last to be released and will most likely be the most pricey.
The remaining two motorcycles, the J1C2 and J1C1, will be positioned as urban motorcycles. In the realm of online media, one of these motorcycles is now known as the Hunter. These two motorcycles will be nearly identical, but there will be a few differences that will set them apart.
When it is released, the J1C2 will be Royal Enfield’s most affordable bike in the country. While the majority of the parts will be shared with its more premium brother, the J1C1. The company can offer it fewer frills and simpler-looking body panels.
