I was wondering if RE will increase the  CC size of their new engine as Triumph 795-》865 or Kawasaki 676-》773 did...

What do you think guys?

I think they need to actually manufacture production models and start selling them first, before they start thinking about plans for another new model.  ::)

I think they are plenty busy selling Himalayans, 500 Bullits, and expect them to be buys making 650s. Not sure they actually WANT to compete with Triumph and other companies.
Of course, with BSA coming back with some serious engineering and money behind them, RE might be forced to do things it would rather not.
