Trouble for Royal Enfield ?

Maybe they'll design a cruiser now and not try a street fighter.

findlay13, I agree with your post, A Ducati look just does not seem a good match with Enfield. I admit that I'm partial to a more traditional look on a motorcycle. If a Ducati was not fast would anyone like the look?

Thunderbird 500 was a bit like a cruiser (if you close one eye and squint)

Yep.All they'd need to do is make it a twin and double the capacity.

Well, Enfield don't do a twin, but they are available, as we know ...

A vertical twin would be something.I loved the look of the Enfield Interceptor "in days of yore"

A friend of mine had one of those that I rode a few times. Was a nice bike and had a cool 2nd small gear shift that kicked it into neutral.

Well hopefully they will pic up another designer. I like the ideal of Royal Enfields made in England again. What a weird world we live in. In the future a Triumph made in Thailand could cross paths with a RE made in England.
