The first Royal Enfield electric bike will launch around 2023 and this page would be updated with its price, features, range & launch date. As seen with companies like Hound Electric and Electric Classic Cars, Royal Enfield fans don’t wait for an electric motorcycle. They build one!
Fred Spaven, a mechanical engineer from the United Kingdom with a passion for all things automotive, especially anything unusual – built a ‘Charging Bullet’ – restored from a 1961 make 350 Bullet – a model made at the Royal Enfield Redditch factory in its final years.
Cochin-based Hound Electric that specializes in the design and development of powertrain components (motors, controllers & battery pack) for automobiles, has designed and fabricated an electric Royal Enfield Bullet to pay tribute to the brand.

Royal Enfield is planning to launch much lighter bikes to widen its target audience and has begun testing its next product. The Royal Enfield Hunter/Royal Enfield Explorer has been caught testing by ElectricVehicleWeb.in reader Gokul Selvaraj, dressed in camouflage.
ElectricVehicleWeb has got pictures of the next-gen Royal Enfield Classic 350 tested with alloy wheels and wind deflector. While the bike has been caught testing with the wind deflector, this is the first time it’s being tested with alloy wheels.
