  • Royal Enfield trademarks 'Guerrilla 450' name ahead of Himalayan 450 launch.

Royal Enfield is gearing up for a busy end to 2023. At the start of September, it will launch the all-new Bullet range, and in November, the eagerly anticipated Himalayan 450 will arrive. Now, carandbike can confirm Royal Enfield has trademarked a new name for another upcoming motorcycle, which will bear the ‘Guerrilla 450’ moniker. While not much is known about the bike at this point, it will almost certainly be an offshoot of the new Himalayan family, adding variety and flavour to what is easily one of the most exciting two-wheeler launches of the year.

While the specifics are unclear at this point, the Guerrilla name points at the focused nature this Himalayan derivative is set to adopt. Just like the Scram 411 was to the original Himalayan, the Guerrilla 450 is set to be based on the new Himalayan, but with a sharper focus on off-road ability. In keeping with the theme of guerrilla tactics, the Himalayan’s sibling could be offered in camo and stealth paint schemes with revised styling, equipped with knobby tyres for enhanced grip over tricky terrain, wire-spoke wheels and upgraded suspension.

The Himalayan and Guerrilla 450 could represent a two-pronged strategy from Royal Enfield to gain control of India’s midsize adventure motorcycle market, which is witnessing renewed interest following the launch of the updated KTM 390 Adventure, and the impending arrival of the Triumph Scrambler 400X.
