https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tyr-BUalWxw I believe we should do everything we can to encourage manufacturers to continue developing such beautiful retro machines. Perhaps by changing the concept of ‘historic racing’ to ‘classic racing’ which could include this type of machine? I am disappointed that the capacity is 535cc, I’d have preferred to see it at about 499cc as applied to the old ‘senior’ race machines. My own race bike is a Mk3Seeley/commando 850, and I’d love to race it against the Paul Smart Ducati retro. I believe machines with the old two valve air cooled four stroke technology are still worth developing. If I was building a 500cc classic racer , I would love it to look like this Royal Enfield. I get the adrenalin rush simply by looking at it. Well done, India ! At least somebody in motorcycle manufacturing has got some smarts.
