Sung Kang is known for his role in the Fast and Furious series as Han Lue recently shared pictures on his Instagram. The pictures were of him visiting Royal Enfield’s R&D facility located in England. We can see him checking out several motorcycles of Royal Enfield.
Sung checked out the Continental GT finished in Ventura Blue. This colour scheme is now discontinued and is replaced by Ventura Storm. He also checks out the SG650 Concept that was revealed at EICMA last year. Moreover, he can also be seen sitting on a vintage Royal Enfield motorcycle.
The SG650 Concept will spawn the new bobber which is expected to be called Shotgun 650. The new motorcycle will share its underpinnings with the Super Meteor 650. We can see that the motorcycle gets a single seat and it is finished in silver and black with blue highlights. The 650 cc engine will be taken from the Interceptor 650 and the Continental GT 650.
It comes with an LED headlamp with a cowl, a teardrop fuel tank and a circular LED tail lamp. It is using up-side down front forks and twin gas chargers at the rear. Moreover, there are LED turn indicators and fat tyres and bar-end mirrors. The engine, headers and exhaust pipes are blacked-out. The exhaust design is new and we have not seen this design on a production-spec motorcycle.
Continental GT 650
The current flagship of Royal Enfield is the Continental GT 650 which is the spiritual successor of the Continental GT 535. It is a cafe racer and many people consider it to be one of the best looking motorcycles. It comes with a 648 cc air-oil cooled petrol engine that produces 47.45 PS of power at 7,100 rpm, with a peak torque of 52 Nm at 5,200 rpm. It is a parallel-twin engine that gets fuel injection and a 270-degree crank. Moreover, there is a counter-balancer that ensures the engine stays smooth and vibration-free.
The next launch from Royal Enfield will be the Hunter 350. When Royal Enfield launches it, they might change the name. The dealer training for the new motorcycle has already started and the motorcycle is expected to launch this month. The new motorcycle is expected to be the most affordable motorcycle from Royal Enfield. It will be available in two variants. The lower variant will come with a disc and drum brake setup while the higher variant will come with a disc in the front as well as at the rear setup.
The design of the motorcycle looks like a modern roadster. It will be based on the same J-platform that is being used on the Classic Reborn and Meteor 350. The engine is also expected to be the same 349 cc, air-oil cooled unit. It is capable of producing 20.2 hp of max power and a peak torque output of 27 Nm. It comes mated to a 5-speed gearbox. Royal Enfield might be using the same engine for its J-platform motorcycles but they are tuning it differently. So, the Hunter 350 will also get a new tune of the engine.
