Is Royal Enfield Releasing Major Updates To Its 650 Range For 2024?

by Enrico Punsalang from Most interesting of all would have to be a sportier Continental GT 650. Ever since their debut back in 2018, the Continental 650 and Interceptor 650 pretty much propelled Royal Enfield to the global spotlight. Prior to the launch of these bikes, the brand had a decent footprint in Europe and Asia, with its retro-style machines being a favorite among classic aficionados. While the 650 Twins are well and truly classic in nature, they brought fairly modern performance technology to the equation. Naturally, a motorcycle with modern-day amenities such as ABS, electronic fuel-injection, and most of all, reliability, is something that anyone can appreciate. Throw in classic styling and an ultra affordable price tag, and what you have is a recipe for success. Indeed, in the past five years of the bikes’ existence, Royal Enfield has somehow managed to continue raking in sales by just updating colors and releasing special editions every now and then. As such, it isn’t at all surprising that the rumor mills have once again been churning. Word around the block is that RE is gearing up to drop major updates on the 650 model range, particularly to the sporty Continental GT. These updates may indeed be foreshadowed by the components we see in the Super Meteor 650. At this point, it’s important to note that Royal Enfield has yet to release any information on the upcoming 650 range, so the best we can do is speculate. Nevertheless, multiple sources suggest that the bike will break cover in time for the 2024 model year. So, what exactly can we expect? Well, our friends at VisorDown have an interesting prediction, and it’s that the upcoming Continental GT 650 will be equipped with alloy wheels, and possibly even the inverted front forks found on the […]

2019 Triumph Rocket 3 R, GT U.S. Pricing Announced

by Daniel Patrascu from Earlier this year UK’s largest motorcycle manufacturer, Triumph, introduced and nearly instantly sold the entire batch of Rocket 3 TFC bikes, fitted with the largest engine available on the market. Those who missed out on that model can now go for the other, lesser variants of this monstrous Triumphs. In the last week of October, the bike maker dumped all the info on the pricing for the Rocket 3 lineup in the United States and Canada. Two models are on the list, namely the Rocket 3 R and Rocket 3 GT. Both bikes are powered by the range’s brand new 2,500 cc triple engine that delivers an 11 percent increase in power over the previous generation, which translates into 165 hp and 163 lb-ft of torque. The numbers above are a tad lower than the output of the same engine fitted on the TFC variant. On that bike, the output was rated at 180 hp at 7,000 rpm and 166 lb-ft of torque at 4,000 rpm, making the model the most powerful production Triumph ever made. The main difference between the two bikes announced last week is the use there are meant for. The R is the “ultimate muscle roadster,” placing all the power of the engine under the control of the rider right from the start, while the GT is a tad softer and more touring-oriented. In the United States, the Rocket 3 R will sell for $21,900, while the GT from $22,600. For comparison, the TFC variant of the Rocket 3 was sold for $29,000, and all the 750 units reserved for America were sold out in a matter of months. Each new bike will be available in two color schemes: Korosi Red or Phantom Black for the R, and two-tone Silver Ice
