Royal Enfield is working on a slew of motorcycles that they will launch in the future. They launched the new J-platform motorcycles which have been accepted by the market and the 650 cc platform is also performing decently well despite being the flagship motorcycle for the manufacturer. Royal Enfield is working on at least eight motorcycles that will be launching soon. Here are all of them.
The last motorcycle to be based on the J-platform is the Bullet 350. It will replace the current UCE Bullet 350 in the line-up and is expected to be positioned above the recently launched Hunter 350. The engine and the chassis will be shared with the Classic 350 but it will have a more basic design.

More importantly, the Himalayan 450 will come with a liquid-cooled engine. This is the first time that Royal Enfield is going towards the liquid-cooled route.
