Royal Enfield’s already started testing early prototypes of its electric motorbikes…
Royal Enfield has ambitious plans to launch its first electric bike by 2025 – and the company seems to be making good progress, as it’s already started testing prototypes.

It shouldn’t come as a great surprise that the Indian factory is making such swift progress. It’s thrown some serious money at the job and hired some top talent for its technology centres both at home and in the UK to help explore, investigate and test in an effort to offer range, performance, durability and value for money for future punters.
At this stage we have absolutely no idea what we should expect from Enfield when it comes to electric. The wider consensus is that we’re probably not going to see any ‘proper’ bikes any time soon – with the suggestion being that we’re much more likely to see smaller capacity, urban-oriented models first.
That said, CEO B Govindarajan said: “Royal Enfield is known for offering motorcycling experience, not just products alone. Our objective is to come out with differentiated product offerings in the EV space.”
Going off that statement alone, it’s possible that we may even see something completely different. Maybe it’ll even be a funky little scooter? Or maybe they’re hoping to make some serious leaps and bounds and come up with a typically-Enfield retro-styled bike.
Here’s hoping that someone catches one of the prototypes out testing so we can have a bit more of a clue about what to expect when 2025 rolls around.
