There are two peashooter-style mufflers, twin rear shocks, dual instruments pods, single round headlight and flat bars, rather than clip-ons as used on the GT Continental.
The 750 will compete more with the Indian-made Harley-Davidson Street 750 and new 750cc Street Rod. Harley currently dominates the over-601cc market in India, according to Harley international sales VP Marc McAllister.
The Royal Enfield 750 is billed as British-designed, engineered and built, but has been spied being tested in the UK and India, so it is likely a joint development project.
Perhaps the bike will be built in both India and the new $6.5m Royal Enfield technical centre and factory in Leicestershire, England.
The bike is expected to give the company a hefty boost in sales, particularly in India where it would be classed as a “super bike”.
Royal Enfield had a record quarter from April to June with a 24.2% rise in sales to 183, 731, with 97.5% of those sold in the Indian market, mostly Classic 350s.
The Indian motorcycle market is the biggest in the world selling almost 2 million two-wheelers last year, well ahead of China with 1.6 million sales.
