Royal Enfield has showcased a new twin-cylinder concept at the 2018 EICMA Motorcycle Show. The new motorcycle is equipped with an all-new V-Twin engine. While the company hasn’t revealed anything on the new engine, the ‘838’ badging on the engine suggest that it is an 838cc, liquid-cooled engine.
The new Royal Enfield Concept KX is designed and developed as a tribute to the legendary RE KX, which was launched in 1938. The engine’s design is also similar to the 1,140cc V-Twin offered with the original KX. The iconic motorcycle was claimed to have a top speed of 129kmph. The Concept KX shares the old retro-styling, featuring the dark bottle-green shade. Some of the features include LED headlight & tail-light, digital instrument cons0le, disc brakes and alloy wheels.
