Is he full of it? Is this really what’s about to break cover? We’ll know for sure tomorrow, but it’s an attractive engine, and if Royal Enfield can assure customers that it has improved its quality, then it might prove a hot-selling ticket in the brand’s strong markets. It might even suck in some more customers who long for a return to days when motorcycle engines were designed with an eye towards aesthetic qualities, instead of the modern liquid-cooled lumps that run efficiently but look ugly.
