    That’s not a lot it’s true, but I’d also hypothesise that it will be heavier than your average old Brit, so it ain’t gonna be no Thruxton R contender!

    Still a nice bike though, and there’s obviously a place for it in the Enfield world as it’s at least 50% more powerful, than their current finest.

    And it will certainly be attractively priced.

    We will wait patiently and see how the quality works out. It may be interesting and different but then
    can it compete with the japs? They are a tough act to equal much less beat.

    I think they’re aiming for a gap between the niches where they basically don’t compete head on with the Japanese. Just like the singles, they don’t really compete head on with them with those either.

    Spoke to a RE rep at Barber about this bike. he was pretty tight-lipped.

    The machine looks a lot lighter than the original Interceptor. It'll likely be a lot more oil-tight, too.
