Royal Enfield’s bobber has been caught on camera while out testing – and it looks like the 650cc parallel twin powered machine is good to go.
Royal Enfield’s busy. We know that there’s a number of new models in the pipeline – but one we were fairly certain was in the works was its twin-cylinder bobber. Following the reveal of the KX Concept last year, it was more than likely we wouldn’t have to wait too long to see a production bobber from the Indian factory in the flesh. And here it is.
We knew it was on the way because it was caught out again a couple of months ago, but this is the first decent look at the all new machine which looks like it’s close to complete.
Although there’s been no official news from the factory, the spy shot helps us to glean a little bit of technical information about the latest machine to be built around that 650cc twin engine that powers the Continental GT and Interceptor. That means we can expect power figures in the region of 47hp and 52Nm of torque. It gets inverted forks, a single disc for stopping up front, alloy wheels and a slim line fuel tank.
For now, that’s about all we know – but chances are we won’t have to wait too much longer to find out more. Rumours suggest it’ll be arriving on the market for mid-2021.
