Royal Enfield can be authorized for getting access to introduce things knocking down a new factory characteristic variant of the Classic 500, in Scrambler form. The forthcoming Royal Enfield Classic 500 Scrambler was blotched testing in recent times and appears to be based on the existing Classic 500. The spy shot acknowledges that the Scrambler 500 fragment out a lot of parts with the Classic 500; in fact, the headlight, fuel tank, side panels, suspension, frame and engine all looks similar to the Royal Enfield Classic 500. What is contrasting in the test mule are the shorter front and rear fenders, as well as a taller handlebar with a central brace, akin to the handlebar of the Royal Enfield Interceptor 650.
The wheels are exactly same wire spoke 19-inch front and 18-inch rear combination, although the tyres seem to be distinctive and are chunkier and have off-road and on-road acclimatize pattern. The tail category of the test mule doesn’t have a pillion seat, which has been reacquired by a luggage rack, although Royal Enfield may overture this as an accessory, with a standard pillion seat. The bike also countenances an upswept exhaust muffler to allow for increased clearance over off-road obstacles. Other than that, there don’t seem to be any more advance adjustment. The Scrambler 500 uses rear and front disc brakes and is fairly anticipated to have standard dual-channel ABS. The suspension implies identical to the one on the Classic 500 as well; whether it is any different or will offer extended marked up travel isn’t clear at this stage. As per the latest up to the minute details available, the 500cc Royal Enfield Scrambler will officially launch in India in March 2019.
The engine seems to be the same 499 cc, the air-cooled single-cylinder motor of the Classic 500 which procreate 527.2 bhp at 5,250 rpm and 41.3 Nm of peak torque at 4,000 rpm, and paired upto a five-speed gearbox. Whether there are any mechanical turnovers in the engine isn’t clear at this stage. But what is clear is that Royal Enfield will be taking a gander to increase its model portfolio by introducing newer variants across the company’s product range. While the Royal Enfield Himalayan will keep on moving ahead to be the company’s adventure offering, more Scrambler variants across the 350 cc, and even the new 650 cc Twin models cannot be ruled out. The Royal Enfield Classic 500 ABS is priced at 2 lakh so awaits the Classic 500 Scrambler to have a meager price increment over the standard Classic 500.
