Smash­ing new En­field re­vealed

Auto Today - - Feature -

Royal En­field in the re­cent times is a com­pany which looks com­pletely trans­formed. They are look­ing at mov­ing away from the tried and tested Clas­sic mod­els and cre­at­ing new bikes ground up. The ‘Twins’ as they are call­ing it look and work like clock­work. But it seems there is more brew­ing within the com­pany and we got a taste of the same in form of the V-Twin KX Bob­ber. The con­cept is said to be in­spired by the 1938 KX model which also came with a V-Twin mo­tor back in the day. The con­cept fea­tures rather sen­su­ous cruiser de­sign and comes with girder forks up front which looks pe­riod cor­rect. At the back the monoshock is hid­den be­low the seat to give the con­cept the look of a hard tail. Other mod­ern touches in­clude LED head and tail lights and a fully dig­i­tal in­stru­ment panel. The fat rear tyre comes cour­tesy Maxxis tyres. The mo­tor in ques­tion is an 1140cc V-Twin which is air and oil cooled. Now for the bad news! Royal En­field says that this a Con­cept, and will re­main a con­cept.
