Obviously, the production-ready version of the Royal Enfield bobber will have some cut downs to keep the price in check. It is unclear whether it will come with a 650cc or 838cc engine. A smaller capacity engine derived from its 650cc sibling will help Royal Enfield to price it very competitively.
If the Royal Enfield Bobber is priced like its siblings in the 3-4 Lakhs range then it will have a large number of potential buyers. Also, Royal Enfield may cut down on some premium equipment like USD forks and single-seat layout to make it more affordable and attract a wider range of audience.
