Royal Enfield’s prototype Cafe Racer is one of the sportiest looking concepts from big daddy of Indian motorcyle market. But it was unclear if the concept will ever make it into production, as a similar concept was shown back 2010 but has not seen the light of the day. But putting rest to all speculation Kevin Mahoney from Classic Motorworks who are the official OEM distributor for Royal Enfield Motorcycles in the US confirmed that Royal Enfield Cafe Racer should be in production by 2013.
“Yes, it will be available in early 2013. It is coming with 100% certainty. I spoke to the CEO last night to confirm even though they have told me this repeatedly,” said Kevin Mahoney
Royal Enfield Cafe Racer sports the sculpted and scooped-out tank thats nothing like seen on any other production model. A twin-pod instrument cluster, retro taillights, a megaphone exhaust, humped leather seat coupled with rear-set foot pegs and clip-on handlebar gives you a true blue Cafe Racer. Cafe Racer is also gets gas shocks and single disc brakes front and rear with both kick and electric start.
Powered by the 500cc twin-spark unit construction design (UCE) power plant might possibly see modifications to accomodate the fact that the weight of the bike is considerably less than Royal Enfield’s existing lineup.
