Speaking at Eicher Motors' investors meeting earlier this year, Royal Enfield CEO (Siddhartha Lal) said that RE's upcoming twin-cylinder 750cc motorcycle would have the performance for high-speed highway cruising.

"It will be absolutely highway worthy and therefore it will bring us out of a niche segment in a lot of faster international markets. Even in markets like Brazil and all, where we are going to, which have quicker roads than India, our futuristic motorcycles will help us in being extremely highway-friendly and worthy."

Powering this flagship product from Royal Enfield will be a 750 cc twin-cylinder engine which is expected to product maximum power something in between 45-50 bhp against the peak torque in between 50-60 Nm.

The new 750cc Continental GT is picked to use an all-new twin cradle frame developed by RE's subsidiary Harris Performance. The twin-cylinder 750cc Royal Enfield has been spotted with a twin exhaust and twin pod instrument cluster...

Apparently, there is some love for the Continental 500, but RE's enthusiasts want more power! :)

So far, the motorcycling press articles that have appeared about the 750cc have been purely speculative, based on "test" bikes that have been spotted by eagle-eyed photographers in India and Spain. Those have referred to the bikes as "mules" for discreetly testing the new engines and transmissions. In other words, not production bikes under testing but test-bed bikes as part of the engineering development. What the final production bikes will look like is completely unknown, and Royal Enfield have neither released any "concepts" yet, nor confirmed any guesses about whether it will be a cafe racer "Continental" style or not...

Given RE's model release history, it might be that the styling cues could actually be driven by the original Royal Enfield Interceptor 750cc twin motorcycle of the 1960s.

Royal Enfield Interceptor 750cc twin motorcycle: July 28, 2006 AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days in Lexington, OH Author: Jamie Aaron

The Interceptor was a British motorcycle made by Royal Enfield between 1960 and 1970. The 700 Interceptor introduced in 1960 was a modified version of the company's 692 cc Constellation model. In 1962, the company introduced the 750 Interceptor which evolved constantly until the end of production in 1970.

Series 1 Interceptor
Royal Enfield introduced their all new 736 cc twin cylinder engine in 1962 on the 750 Interceptor. Bore and stroke was 71 mm × 93 mm (2.80 in × 3.66 in). The new engine was similar to the 692 cc engine; but there was hardly any part that was not modified or improved. The engine cases were beefed up to withstand the increased torque. What sets this engine apart from other contemporary British twins is that the crankshaft was dynamically balanced from the factory which made these bikes one of the smoothest British twin engines ever. The Series 1 bikes had an automatic advance magneto, coil ignition and a new seat.

The Royal Enfield Super Meteor 1957 was good looking bike:

Royal Enfield company president Rudratej Singh recently sent out a tweet with a picture containing tantalising portions of 3 motorcycles. The front bike has a bench seat reminiscent of the original Royal Enfield Interceptor, but featuring tank knee pads and the red tank colour appears slightly darker than the Classic 350 "Redditch Red." The reflection on CEO Siddhartha Lal’s helmet (at right) may indicate that this bike has a straight, chrome exhaust.

Speculation is that one will be a café racer styling as per the Continental and another will be a classic, as per the original RE 750.

The second motorcycle (behind Rudratej Singh at left) shows a diamond-stitched seat, possibly able to host a pillion passenger and a matte black exhaust is visible. A third bike is barely visible behind Lal.

The Indian press speculation is that the Royal Enfield 750 cc motorcycle could debut on 7 November in Milan, Italy at the ‘EICMA 2017′ Bikes and Motorbikes Exhibition
