Royal Enfield is gearing up to launch a new motorcycle - the Trials - on March 27. According to sources, it will be launched in both 350cc and 500cc guise.
Royal Enfield witnessed the potential of customisation and introduced the Thunderbird X in early 2018. It was the brand’s first modern-day factory custom intended for urban riders. Soon, the company realised that there’s quite some potential in the off-roading space where riders want a motorcycle that can do some light off-roading apart from the day-to-day commute, and that’s how the Trials came into existence. It serves as an ideal middle ground between the retro-looking Classic range and the spartan, off-road-centric Himalayan.
The company recently teased the motorcycle, and from the looks of it, the Trials is likely to command a premium of about Rs 10,000 over the Classic range. The Trials 350 is likely to cost around Rs 1.6 lakh, while the Trials 500 might be priced at Rs 2.1 lakh (both, ex-showroom Delhi). There really isn’t any direct rival for this ‘scrambler’ as it is the most affordable one in its segment.
