No, the link I posted earlier went to the "live" twin debut video earlier, then it changed to 3 different new RE twin videos. It's all good though. Those videos were very enjoyable!

This is the one I'm halfway through. Streamed 8 hours ago (GMT).

I wonder what the main bike to have was in the 60's era? Enfield or Triumph?

*edit*

There's a lot of passion throughout the talk. And rightly so.

Any US delivery dates yet?  Looks very promising as the GT frame and handling have been spectacular.  Only unknown is the new engine AND the ECU.  I waited one year to jump on board the C5 and went through fixing the entire high speed death wobble rigmarole with the rest of the early C5 crew 😳....got a GT off the first boatload to the US and promptly had to figure out kinked fuel lines and PCVs to fix random cold stalls. Will probably buy the Interceptor but am not inclined to waste my time and money on troubleshooting for RE......at least with Kevin and crew there was reliable support if needed. 🙂

I read something about March 2018 for Europe. Maybe  that means US too?

I saw similar April 2018 predictions for Europe.....maybe Kevin can fill us in on the US dates. Will call Marty to reserve one hopefully soon!

I could've sworn I heard Sidartha say in the debut video that the twin would be available worldwide "through 2018".  I am hoping I heard right, and that what he meant was "during 2018".

Maybe wishful thinking but I'm putting a word in with my dealer today and saving up for the day...  :)

I also agree.  I like the silver tank too.  Just add a sump guard some duel sport tires and a sidecar.  That's what I'd like to have.  It would put a smile on my face.🙂

Royal Enfield people are good people

Cheers,
Bill

Finally!!, Though I tend to favor the Roadster, I am a little disappointed that they went the timing chain rather than pushrods. Probably more service/maint. friendly though.
