The official website has a "book a test ride" pull-down.  You start by choosing your country.  The two choices are United Kingdom and France.  France?  Who knew we could go to Marseille for a test ride?!?

Here is a positive first-ride review from Visor Down. It really is a sharp looking motorcycle.  Who else ships with bar-end mirrors?

That's some fairly positive press for it.

I felt a little bit slighted when they said to buy some other brand of motorcycle if you want to do "The Ton".
After all, there are plenty of Ton-Up Royal Enfield Bullets out there on the road now, and they are no secret. We've been making them for years.

Cool video, not a fan of the music.  Plus the mix on the bike exhaust/engine volume was way too quiet.

I really liked that video - I dug the tunes and the vibe. 

scoTTy, I think you could ditch the generic bits, like the silver fenders and the lights, and get it looking good.  I think black fenders and a small black light would be slick with that black frame and red paint.  Maybe black shocks too.  8)

What is the grey (silver?) slotted plate just by the brake pivot?  Is it hiding, or protecting, a hydraulic reservoir?

No, I see there's one on both sides.  Foot guard?

I am down in Orlando for the AimExpo and happened to run into Kevin M. and a continental Enfield. Pretty sweet looking ride. (Kevin was on his phone when I snapped the picture, sorry Kevin)
