Big news coming from RE this weekend
« on: November 09, 2012, 01:19:54 PM »
There is a big event for RE dealer's this weekend in Dallas TX and there is a pretty neat announcement coming soon. Hopefully someone will grab a picture and put it up here once they see it in person. Wish I was able to make the show to check it out first hand!

Sure looks like it. Several sites have recent reports on this.....reportedly for Rs. 160,000 in India......which is about US $3000.  It will be interesting to see what they want for it here.

Well, I like the look of it.
I thought they would announce something else. We already knew this was coming.
It would be nice to hear some details about the "tuned engine" and what that's all about.

Looks like a long stretch from the seat to the bars. Somewhat reminiscent of the early Triumph Thruxtons.

Nah, not the cafe racer. It's the new line of Royal Enfield lawn mowers about to make a big splash!

The bike looks a lot like the early pictures. Motor is 535cc. Paoli shocks not Olins but they look good and should work better then anything used now. Seat height is a bit high about 32" I believe, but it's narrow so that helps. Weighs about 40 pounds less then the C5. Seating position is not so demanding as modern sportbikes. The bars aren't to low and the pegs aren't to high. A little on the small side if your much over 6 feet.  They are keeping the price less then a grand more then the C5, but at this time no set price. The bike really is beautiful, unfortunately we won't see them on show floors for a few months. I don't have a picture to post yet but I'll work on that.

Thanks for the info!

Any word about the motor, other than 535cc?

A few more horsepower. They report a nice bump in midrange with a little more top end power. No changes in the external look of the motor that I could tell. No answer on the throttle body size. Also no answer on valve size or gearing.

Thanks Marty. Will look forward to seeing the photos and hopefully the real thing soon. We were definitely running low on topics to discuss in the UCE section!

The info I had about the announcement didn't really give any specifics on the bike. It was mainly a letter about the unveiling and about pre-ordering them. Hopefully they throw up a picture or two of it, as that link appears to be using the pictures from the January New Delhi Auto Expo show.

These are only going to be built to order, so I assume there will be a wait to get one when you order one. There are a couple of different lower seats also being introduced. They were designed by Dave Perewitz. There was no price listed for the Cafe Racer.

A little over $7000 but the price has not been set.
