The KX 838cc V-Twin Concept from RE previewed a worthy rival to the Harley Davidson and Triumph motorcycles
Royal Enfield has just unveiled the 838 cc new concept at EICMA today. The motorcycle as we already have mentioned a couple of times earlier as well is powered by an all-new 838 cc V twin motorcycle which has been developed in alliance with Polaris industries.
The unit is BSVI compliant and is capable of producing about 90 Ps of peak power and Nm of torque. The engine is paired to a 6-speed gearbox which sends power to the rear wheels.
The motorcycle as you all can clearly see in these images gets its styling inspiration from Bobber styled motorcycle. It has a long wheelbase and single saddle for the rider. The KX 838cc V-Twin concept also features an all LED headlamps towards the front with daytime running lamps integrated into it.
The fuel tank too looks eye catching with RE logo marked onto it. RE has used a monoshock setup for its rear while the front gets beefy upside down forks. The Royal Enfiled KX 838cc V-Twin concept also received a flat handlebar and a dual muffler setup which have been designed particularly for a throaty and unique exhaust note for which RE is famous for.
The motorcycle definitely has taken some of its styling cues from the legendary 1140 KX Bobber which was developed in between the year 1938 and was powered by a 1,140cc V-Twin motor.
This motorcycle is still in its concept form but RE definitely won’t delay in its development and we will be able to witness the production variant soon. The powerful motorcycle will definitely come to the Indian market after it is launched in other International markets where the demand for higher capacity motorcycles is more.
Currently, RE is focusing on the launch of the 650 CC twins in India. The 650 twins which consist of the Continental GT 650 and the Interceptor 650 are powered by a newly developed 648 cc parallel twin unit.
The Interceptor 650 will be the cheapest 650 cc twin cylinder motorcycle of India and that is also one of the main reason why there is so much hype surrounding these motorcycles.
