Looks nice, always has. Check out the skinny seat on the C5.

The only thing I can tell that is different from when this was shown in January is that little red seat cowl and the unfortunate change of the handlebars.  I've never liked the high-mounted clip-ons. They look odd.

The January model's clip-ons look right on they money.

I kinda like the raised clip-on's, being the old fart that i am. Nice looking bike, and kudo's to RE for sticking so close to the concept.

This is a tiny bit of a let down compared to the New Delhi concept. Handlebars and the midget cowl behind the seat are unattractive.........the chrome and polished parts seem to have been spray painted silver.......fortunately nothing that we can't " fix"! Looks good overall, but has lost the original sparkle that could have sold a lot of bikes.

My thought exactly...gotta leave something for the aftermarket.

Better than I'd expected; expected them to put high-rise tubular bars on it.

I might have to see if I can source that front end before I leave India...but I doubt it.

I am guessing that the chrome and polished parts were painted to help keep the cost reasonable. If they are calling for just over 7K or so, I can see them selling. If it was 8K+, I would be suprised it they sold many.

I still think it looks nice.
Maybe the 535 kit will be useful for me to use with my attempts to mod this UCE beast.
I hope.

Looks like the passenger pegs are missing, but supports are there. Hopefully folks who want to ride 2-up can put another seat on there, as much as I like that saddle.

So was this officially the big news? Or might we find out more from RE this week at EICMA?

You think it's tough to go out on a standard Bullet without drawing a crowd... the riders of this beauty are going to get MOBBED.

I really dig the frame.
