Definitely a Conti GT frame with a twin motor.

So should be very nippy and handle well!!

Shame its not a V twin though!

I'm surprised.

No one has commented on Royal Efields 650 Interceptor or their 650 CGT?

I realize this is a Bullet Forum but the new twin looks like it could easily give Triumph a run for the money. :)

Well for me the bike looks nice but nothing special.

The air cooled twin was not what I was expecting to be honest.

I was expecting a 750, but hey it's designed for the Indian market, not really outside.

I personally was hoping for a 360 engine, not he 270 they went for.
Having ridden a 270 before, I distinctly did not enjoy it like my old BSA 360 engine.

I will have to ride it to see if I like it, as I had planned to get one originally.

However the spanner in the works is Mahindra, who have plans to bring out a BSA, so that may just trump the RE.

SO WHAT DO YOU GUYS IN THE US THINK??

I don't like the 270 configuration either. why spoil a bike just to make it run rough like a Harley?
Triumph do both on their bonneville, would not consider the 270.
