The Kamala is indeed a one-of-its-kind. We haven’t seen anything like this modified Royal Enfield Continental GT 650 before.  Sosa Metalworks, known for some unique custom builds and this is an exquisite piece of metal artwork to say the least!    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g5xe4ub63as&feature=emb_logo The Kamala is so extensively customised that it’s hardly recognisable that it is based on a Royal Enfield Continental GT 650.

Royal Enfield Meteor 350 spied during TVC shoot

Royal Enfield Meteor, which could replace the RE Thunderbird motorcycle in India has been spied during TVC shoot. It's been rumoured for a while now that Royal Enfield will drop the ‘Thunderbird’ name in favour of ‘Meteor’, a name the company trademarked early last year. However, the latest spy images of the upcoming motorcycle have now confirmed that Royal Enfield's all-new motorcycle will be called the Meteor 350. The Meteor 350 will be Enfield’s first bike from the new J-platform. There are radical changes to the chassis as well as the motor. However, the styling remains quite similar to the Thunderbird 350X. The bulbous tank arrives in an eccentric yellow colour. The triangular black side panels bear the new Meteor 350 badging. Even the blacked-out rims get body-coloured ri...

Royal Enfield Thunderbird 500cc single spied testing for 2020

Royal Enfield is rigorously testing its BS-VI range, and we have seen several test mules of the 2020 models in the past via spy photographs. The new version spotted testing, although retaining its classic style, has inevitably been modernised and appears to take some clear 'learnings' from its recent 650 twins. For a start, the engine is brand new, with an external appearance much closer to that of the 650 twin. Given the company's requirements for smaller displacement machines, particularly for the vast domestic Indian market, we imagine capacity has remained at 500cc but it’s likely the new single will be oil-cooled just like the twins. The bottom end of the new engine also appears to be brand new with the final drive now on the left suggesting it’s a complete redesign rat...

Royal Enfield Himalayan put to durability test

The Royal Enfield Himalayan was a milestone for the brand as it not only broke away from the traditional RE format of classic motorcycles, but also ushered in a new era of affordable adventure tourers. While the Himalayan is likeable in many ways unfortunately it was plagued by several issues. The updated, BSIV variant is said to be a lot more reliable. Recently, folks at ADV Pulse decided to put the Himalayan through its paces. Here are their observations - Engine: With the 411cc, 24 horsepower motor that redlines at 6,500 RPM, the Himalayan is incapable of tearing itself apart. There were no mechanical issues with the motor in spite of rigorous tests. Transmission: Ride it more like a 125 two-stroke, to keep the momentum up and not letting the RPMs drop too low. The ga...
