Royal Enfield Guerilla 450 Nearly Here: Fresh Spyshots Reveal All

Guerilla 450 spied

A few weeks ago, we wrote about the upcoming motorcycles from Royal Enfield in India. One of the names that came up on the list was the Guerilla 450. The motorcycle is expected to be launched in the market this financial year. Royal Enfield has been testing this new motorcycle extensively. The motorcycle has been spotted testing a couple of times, and we now have a set of fresh images that give us a better look at the upcoming motorcycle.

The Guerilla 450 is going to be the second motorcycle from Royal Enfield, after the Himalayan, to use the 450cc Sherpa engine. However, it will not be an adventure tourer but a neo-retro roadster. The spy pictures seen here have been shared by Pink Piston on their Instagram page. In these images, we see a fully camouflaged motorcycle parked on the side of the road. It looks like a production-ready version of the Guerilla 450.

It is a motorcycle based on the new Himalayan, and the upcoming Guerilla 450 will share some parts with the adventure tourer. From the images, we can see that the motorcycle comes with a single pod instrument cluster. We do not have a clear image of the instrument cluster, and it remains to be seen if it is the same TFT unit available with the Himalayan.

The design of the tank also looks very similar to the one seen on the Himalayan. From the images, the Guerilla 450 doesn’t look as tall as the Himalayan. The front gets telescopic forks, and the rear gets a monoshock. There is a gaiter around the front fork, and the round headlamp is neatly placed right below the instrument cluster.

Unlike the Himalayan, the Guerilla 450 doesn’t get spoke wheels. It is a neo-retro roadster that comes with alloy wheels. The turn indicators and the tail section of this motorcycle are borrowed from the Himalayan. The seat height on this motorcycle is lower than the Himalayan, and the single seat setup with a grab rail integrated into the tail section gives it a clean look. The exhaust on the Guerilla looks slightly different from the one on the Himalayan.

As mentioned above, the Guerilla 450 will be powered by the same engine as the Himalayan. The Sherpa 450 engine is a 452-cc single-cylinder unit that generates 40 PS and 40 Nm of peak torque. The engine will be mated to a 6-speed gearbox. Other than the upcoming Guerilla 450, Royal Enfield plans to launch five more motorcycles in the market this financial year.
