Inline twin, like a Sunbeam S7.
I vote parallel twin BUT if they're making this bike to take on Harley at home they may be more inclined to a v-twin to compete more directly.Scott
HA! - Only YOU would come up with up that .... ! I was gonna say like a Velocette LE .....
My initial reaction was H-D has has twenty year head start in advertising with Billions spent in that department for RE to make any headway at all with a V-Twin.And then a V Star rumbled past,,,,,,,

Gorilla, I don't think the V-twin market is nearly played out in the US. As evidence I offer the fact that HD is still around selling hugely expensive bikes even in this economy, as are all it's imitators foreign and domestic.Scott
I say we keep the bike different, that may not be the best way to go marketing wise,Or engineering wise, but i think that's why most of us bought an Enfield.
Well, that wasn't me that wrote that...
Oops! I've had a few cocktails today Scott
RE has dabbled in more than one type of V twin
Sorry, no cocktails yet but not enough coffee this morning: Those last lines should have read, ".....throwback to their own copy bike of the 1960's ? If sound is what sells REs in India a 270(degree) oughta do it. Nigel.
When you look for torque and are willing to avoid high revs, this thing will go like ape shit
I like both also. I think India will build what there market would want,since we are only a small portion of the pie. In other words,not sure if the Intercepter was their bag and they may want to go modern,like liquid cooled?
