The manfacturer hasn't as yet confirmed any mechanical changes to these motorcycles. Royal Enfield had earlier confirmed that it is looking to expand its range of motorcycles apart from making some changes to their existing line-up. Two new models will be introduced by next year, both based on two new engine platforms. We can expect the Himalayan to be launched this year, followed by another model in 2017.
