As usual, Indians more concerned with getting on social media and self aggrandising than actually delivering any goods. You go, RE!

Another hideous monstrosity.

How about just delivering the bikes?

Where is some technical data on the 650 mill? Is it a tandem twin?Phantom Views? I'm sure it's out there but I just haven't run into it. There is however, no shortage of ridiculous builds. Edit, found some data, 270deg crank.  40ish hp. Wonder what it "Intercepts". It seems RE is all about cosmetics on the same sow. A lot of Manufactureres and custom builders do the same thing.  I call them Walter Mitty Cycles.

With 47bhp it intercepts the cut off point for UK learner license holders.

Wow, there must be millions of them to warrant their own power point. ;D

Came across this vid today. The opening line says it all. "At Royal Enfield we try not to do too much". I think they have it nailed.

 ;D  And it is their first "highway capable" motorcycle. Don't let the 500 single and Continental GT owners hear that.  ;)

It may be the first "highway capable" motorcycle that the RE factory has made. But it certainly isn't the first highway capable RE. We have made many on the aftermarket.

Also..., IIRC when they were introducing the 500 UCE in 2009, they also touted that as "highway capable" too.

Whatever.
Let's just get the bikes on the showroom floor please.
It seems everyone has one except for the customers.
