This is the Dakar-styled RE prototype that was shown at Eicma in Milan. If the new 650 or 250 versions of the enduro motorcycles look like this, they'll be hot stuff.

The Indian company’s Himalayan – 410cc, single-cylinder with 25hp and 32Nm – has been a sales success for the resurgent firm and there’s much speculation that the names will be attached to a 250cc single (this is likely to be the Sherpa) and a two-cylinder 650cc with 48hp and 52Nm (the Hunter).

According to Indian motorcycle outlets, a two-cylinder Enfield enduro has been seen in tests and Royal Enfield boss Siddhartha Lal has spoken openly about his desire to make a 650 twin along the lines of the current Himalayan.

Add to that the story we brought you back in November about an electric Enfield to appear soon and suddenly there’s a lot going on with RE. The Indian Auto Expo Show kicks off in early February (7 -12) in Delhi so expect to see something along these lines from that event.
