I just read that RE is putting together a 650 based flat tracker and also a Himalayan based racer also.Interesting.
Only downside, minor I know...A friend of mine has a RE 650 and absolutely loves it. He has 3 bikes, a Ducati Monster 821, a MV Augusta Turismo Veloce and the RE.
The Re is his go to bike. So much so he’s questioning the need for the others !
Well that’s true, but also true of most new air cooled bikes in stock spec that we want / expect to sound nice.Only downside, minor I know...
I was having lunch at a biker pub in north Queensland last week and there were lots of bikes coming and going.
As a group of them left - some old and new Triumphs, a couple of airhead Beemers and a RE650,
Well, all sounded great, except for the RE - reminded me of a badly worn sewing machine.
Yep I've seen/heard them with those short pea shootersWell that’s true, but also true of most new air cooled bikes in stock spec that we want / expect to sound nice.
He’s put some Peashooter esque straight through silencers on from Hitchcocks, a long time established Enfield specialist in the U.K. It sounds quite good.
