It looks like a mish-mash of different parts. It doesnt have particular style. The side covers look Goldwing or CX500. The rear fender looks HD. The headlight shell looks Chinese. The bent header pipe looks like the early 2000s Bonneville style that was favorably changed to a straighter pipe.

I thought that too. Also the frame loop, but that's more likely a nod to the 500 Bullet frame.

I wouldn't buy a bike like that but I don't hate it. It's got that power cruiser look, like a V-Max or Diavel. Only thing, it needs like a 1.6l engine to pull that off    ;). 650 isn't enough...

I haven't really looked .. but are you saying that it looks like a different frame from the current 650 twin?

Exactly.  Every model Royal Enfield up to now looks like exactly what it is.  This bike looks like something it isn’t.  A muscle bike without the muscle.

Broken link :(

I assume this is the bike in question? or the 2nd one?
I think this one looks quite nice.
I’d rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy...

It looks different to me. The front half might be the same, who knows? But that rear loop is different. like I said, it looks like the old Bullet frame. That's a good thing, mind. They're nice looking classic style bikes.

I doubt they gave the capability, but an electric bicycle based on the original 1901 model would be a really neat thing.

Well that was a yawn.  A concept only and an anniversary models that are pre-ruined for you with brown seats. I might add them to my munted motorcycles Facebook group which is usually reserved for the damage done by owners to their bikes ‘customising’ them

Have you got TMF's custom Int in there?

Glad I'm not the only one who thought that was an exercise in poor taste.

actually no [EDIT I have added it now], but I should add it.  I resisted on his YouTube page, after all if he is happy with it that's all that matters but I personally thought it was horrible.

If you watch some of his latest videos he's not happy with it. I think he built up the reveal so much that he tried to convince himself it looked good for his audience.

I'm waiting to see when he fesses up how much it cost (I think he said he would?).

Do I need  50,000 YouTube subscribers before I'm allowed to slap my personal logo on the side panels of my Interceptor?  I was contemplating this:
