Chassis was designed by a serious chassis designer who knows his stiff. Still it is still long straight frame pipe runs and will prob flex a fair bit.

Nice retro styling if you like that sort of thing.

I actually think this company that has purchased Royal Enfield  (Eicher Motors) actually the subsidery Royal Enfield India also owned by Eicher has done a great job keeping to the Royal Enfield Design.  The image is the original Interceptor

Nice looking, simple, old school design but the question is, can they service their bikes in your area and how readily available are parts for it?

I suppose because they are 'old school', they only "run around". 😊
