Royal Enfield Roadster 450: Sneak Peek into the Upcoming Roadster’s Testing Phase

Royal Enfield enthusiasts have something to look forward to as spy shots of the Roadster 450 undergoing testing have emerged, offering a glimpse into the design and features of this upcoming model. Part of the 450 platform, which follows the recent launch of the Himalayan, the Roadster 450 is poised to bring a roadster-style design with distinctive elements.

The spy images showcase a classic roadster aesthetic, with a round headlight, a substantial fuel tank featuring an offset filler cap, compact side panels, and a streamlined tail section reminiscent of the Himalayan. Notably, the integrated tail light and indicator setup from the Adventure (ADV) model make an appearance on the Roadster 450 as well.

In terms of features, the Roadster 450 is expected to boast all-LED lights, and speculation suggests the inclusion of the circular TFT dial seen in the Himalayan. To manage component costs and pricing, there’s a possibility of a circular LCD cluster with Bluetooth connectivity.

Examining the chassis, it appears to utilize the engine as a stressed member, with a suspension setup comprising a telescopic fork at the front and a preload-adjustable monoshock at the rear. The motorcycle rides on 17-inch alloy wheels, exhibiting a design reminiscent of the Shotgun 650. The road-biased chunky tires hint at a blend of performance and versatility.

Braking components include disc brakes at both the front and rear, potentially similar to those on the Himalayan, with dual-channel ABS as a standard feature.

The Roadster 450 is anticipated to be powered by the same liquid-cooled, single-cylinder engine found in the Himalayan 450, generating 39.47bhp at 8,000rpm and 40Nm at 5,500rpm. Royal Enfield might fine-tune the engine’s specifications and gearing to align with the intended performance and rideability of a roadster.

Scheduled for launch in the coming months, the Royal Enfield Roadster 450 is projected to be priced around Rs 2.4 lakh, positioning itself in direct competition with the Triumph Speed 400 and the KTM 390 Duke.
