It's the new RE version of the Matchless 650 with belt-driven SOHC and a rev limit of 9000rpm.
The handmade alloy tank matches the alloy mudguards and side panels. It's kickstart-only which contributes to the sub-200kg wet weight. Fritz Egli was enlisted to frame it in nickel plated chrome moly tubing. The 6 speed Quaif CR gearbox is driven by Fitchel and Sachs slipper clutch and belt primary. Wheels are magnesium forgings with Brembo radial calipers on Ohlins dampers throughout. The calfskin saddle comes in a choice or three heights. Manufacturing advances have reduced labor costs resulting in a $5300 MSRP not including the optional Brooklands style performance exhaust or Avon fairing.

Dream your own ride!



It's the right part number so it might fit.

Who is this made by, again? Certainly not Royal Enfield. Sounds more like a Harley to me. ::)

Speculation is that it's a "Bobber". No one knows what it is though. Scheduled for November 6th release date at a bike show in Milan;

Probably a C5 with the 650 in it.

Perhaps a C5 with 650 nestled into a new Harris frame? ???  Just speculating... ::) 

Looks like it has saddle bags too, although the picture could be deceptive, might be anything underneath. :P

My money is on the 650 "super classic" with dry sump, kickstart only, twin leading shoe drum breaks and genuine Lucas electrics.

Hi everyone

  Just seen the pic of upcoming RE which is going to be shown at 6.11.2018 it's having the same 650 engine as in INT650 and GT650 more like a bobber

I'm seeing dual front discs and alloy wheels...   ::)

Reminds me of the New Triumph Speedmaster I was sitting on last Friday. Very nice and comfortable.  :) Same frame as Bobber, but I'm not keen on that Bobber. :P

So... Maybe there will be an RE "Bobber", but also an RE "Speedmaster" 8) (which is a more real world motorcycle)?
