Now that really is fugly. I didn't think I'd see a 'classic' v-twin which looked worse than the new Brough Superior but blow me down, they've managed it.

They could do something more attractive with that engine, the alloy wheels I could live with, but that hideous front end and the crass bobber styling at the back, no, No NO!!!

Why not build something that looks nice? Modern stylists have lost the plot.

As I have posted elsewhere...

Just buy a Harley Davidson Sportster and save a load of work time and money!

Is this the Polaris thing they are talking about, just a bigger version of it?

And the reason they would have to use alloy wheels is because going by their "production figures" of around 850,000 a year I doubt they have enough Indians to spoke 1.7 mill wheels each year

Valsp, to be fair that car looked much better and more like what it was trying to copy than the monstrosity above does!!

OK, so how could they clean up this visual mess?

It shouldn't be too hard to design a classic-looking girder fork with some modern suspension, and a nice separate 8" round headlamp to show that you're respecting the model's heritage rather than just plundering it for the model name or number.

The engine could rally be a narrower angle vee twin.

Then at the back if you want a spring frame with a classic look, surely the Indian Bullet frame we all know and love does that in spades and will let you use a sprung saddle rather than thing stuck out in thin air.

Go back and try again guys, you've shown you can do a reasonable job with the CGT and the new 650 twins.

Another load of shite forced on us by designers who think that 'hipsters' are the only people to ride bikes. How can the same company get the new Interceptor so right and then this hideous piece of crap so wrong? Ian

Looks like a Yawnaha 1100 cruiser. With the usual RE production timing, this will arrive after the hipster craze fades in 2022. Anyone see a 650 on the road?

Adrian Subject: Royal Enfield KX 1140 Concept Bike
Not in this country, I suspect.

The dealers' ads for the 650s have been up on ebay for months, but now they're taking about delivery in spring 2019. If I HAD wanted a twin I'd be having second thoughts by now and looking for something else.
