Royal Enfield shows off the KX concept at EICMA
Sneaky and sleek, this royal brit has stolen my heart with one photo...
Royal Enfield has just shown off big time, with their new concept bike at EICMA 2018. It is a tribute motorcycle, based on the 1938 Royal Enfield KX, which was the largest displacement bike manufactured by the Indian cruiser maker. The bike had a 1140cc engine, which even by nowadays standards, can shift some metal around. Must have sounded like a Spitfire!

The concept is slightly smaller than its grandfather, with an 838cc engine but doesn't disappoint me at all - seeing how it looks. Not many photos have been released as of yet, but we have some snippets and a video from Royal Enfield and from fellow journalists at EICMA.
The styling is gorgeous, a dark metallic green and copper colour scheme gives it that old 1930s British flavour. Even that matt black metalwork blends well with the leather seat and handle grips. The KX concept is kept low and sleek, with a small retro petrol tank and seat height. To precise, it's 740mm high on 19-inch rims, so how low can you go?
From the looks of it, clearly, Royal Enfield isn't going to stop any time soon - the oldest motorcycle company one day maybe the future of bikes - they keep on the pulse and have announced more upcoming bikes, including bigger 650 Twins. Spicy.
Check out the video from the Royal Enfield Twitter page for a better look of the KX concept.
