I manage an automobile blog called Indiancarsbikes in India and here is what we managed to snap up during the 2010 Indian Auto Expo at Delhi, India. These motorcycles will be launched in the United States shortly. http://www.indiancarsbikes.in/motorcycles/royal-enfield-new-500-classic-chrome-battlegreen-2010-auto-expo-1377/http://www.indiancarsbikes.in/motorcycles/royal-enfield-cafe-racer-bike-auto-expo-2010-1353/Cheers,Jay
OK boys now for a reality check. The "Chrome bike" it is getting known as at the factory will most likely NOT make it's way to the US this year. The design isn't even frozen yet.As those of you who follow this may remember the Sixty-Five with the 5 speed, the Electra and the C-5 all came later than they were scheduled to come to the US. Also bear in mind that Europe usually gets this stuff first. The one I saw some time ago in the design lab had a much nicer looking Tan solo (different design than the C-5) and some other differences. As for the Cafe bike, it is a concept bike only. RE did announce that it would be introduced in 2012 but I would be shocked if it happened on that time table. I would prefer that something like it came out in 2011 but Enfield has never been that nimble. On the other hand things have been changing fast there so who knows. I will be going over again in a month or so and will let you know what I find.
