The two wheeler division of Eicher Motors – Royal Enfield is developing 2 brand new engines on which its upcoming new products could be launched.
Speaking to ET, Siddhartha Lal, who is the Managing Director and CEO said,
We are developing two new engine platforms on which multiple products could be launched. The new products would be in the range of 250 cc and 750 cc and we expect to see products introductions starting next year
Mr Lal of Royal Enfield also added,
We would stick to our core proposition. The bikes would be for international markets and they would be higher performance bikes but not extreme performance bikes
The company also detailed about their upcoming product line that it would stick to its core strengths and would not go in for bikes which are extreme and very sporty.

We will continue to make higher investments into brand, distribution and globally relevant products that will be essential for us to achieve global leadership in the mid-size motorcycle category
