These should be available immediately! They would be my first Mod.
Sorry I did such a lousy editing job, but it's enough to get the idea.
Yes, that's what I'm talking about!  I like it a lot. 😁

Royal Enfield people are good people

some readily available extended front brake lines for taller bars would be convenient, of course some proper saddle bags & MOUNTS, a low sitting 'soft' solo seat with a stylish luggage rack, forward control option or forward pegs....geez, sounds like I want a whole different bike, oh well.

Umm,... a real dealer network and full parts support for the older models.

True dat... Don't know why I missed this comment earlier.

The dealer network may be beginning though. I just looked at the RE website dealer locator and there's now one in my state where there wasn't a few months ago when I looked. It would seem I don't need to drive over 400 miles anymore to visit one. Yipee!

I don't have high hopes for the parts support however.  :-\

How about an accessory deal when buying a new 650? Factory sourced add ons like: rear rack, saddle bags or pannier bags, windscreens, bark busters, GPS mount, phone mount, 12v socket. Sorry, no sari guards. Dealers could sweeten the deal with a accessory upgrade kit, for a too good to say no upgrade price for stuff you want to have anyway!
  Dealers have been doing this type of deal for years. What makes this one different is the economic leverage from the factory’s cost, made in India.

Looks like the new twins come with a centre stand with proper feet that makes it easy to roll the bike off the stand. Not like the Real CGT centre stand with those stupid bits of tube for feet that skid across the concrete.

Some 'RE' embossed pipe wrap to cover those hideous tubular contraptions running to and from the radiator   ::)
