I had a close look at a Royal Enfield 650 Interceptor. I was impressed. If Mahindra brings out a new BSA along the same lines, I could be tempted.

whatever, but please give us a kickstart maharaja as knee power is superior to poor battery power.

There are quite a few of the new RE's where I live and I am also impressed by them. I have never liked the singles much but they seem to have done a very good job with the new twins.

I have a friend (now there's a surprise!) that has one and he loves it.

 For some reason maybe due to dyslexia I was thinking Constellation when I was at the bike shop that sells these (next door at the Guttzi shop really) and we argued a bit ( not unusual), but I found they came in Interceptor and Continental....(I hope not Incontinent-al); difference being clip-ons or some stuff  *conf2*
