ROYAL ENFIELD UNVEILS KX AT 2018 EICMA

ROYAL ENFIELD UNVEILS KX AT 2018 EICMA Royal Enfield has unveiled the concept Royal Enfield KX motorcycle at the 2018 EICMA Motorcycle Show in Milan, Italy. The Royal Enfield Concept KX is a something new from an old 1938 Royal Enfield which was powered by an 1140 cc V-Twin engine and was the largest displacement motorcycle from the manufacturer at the time. Even though a prototype, the Concept KX is a statue of the evolution and influence of Royal Enfield motorcycles in the future.

ROYAL ENFIELD UNVEILS KX AT 2018 EICMA Taking the influence from the 1938 RE, the 2019 KX is designed in two forms – neo-classical and futuristic, with the concept being a blend of the two. The bike has been finished a green and copper paint scheme with black and bronze finishes to the engine and dual exhausts, while the seat and handlebar grips are wrapped in leather. The Concept KX is long and low-slung in appearance with a retro-styled fuel tank.

ROYAL ENFIELD UNVEILS KX AT 2018 EICMA Though its retro and classic looks, the new bike will include plenty modern elements including the blade-style girder fork design, while headlamp has been designed to look retro while incorporating LED units. According to the company, the front and rear lights also incorporate a stylised version of the old Redditch ‘E’ for Enfield logo, quite reminiscent of the pre-war motorcycles.

ROYAL ENFIELD UNVEILS KX AT 2018 EICMA RE has opted for a “clean” look on the Concept KX that gets a with the frame and airbox configuration serving as a stressed member, while single-seat unit is a of a cantilever design. Although Royal Enfield hasn’t revealed anything about the engine yet, apart from the fact that the display model gets a dummy unit, we can see that the showcased concept rides on massive 19-inch wheels, while the seat height is low at 740 mm. However, the company does say that it is 838 cc in displacement and gets a V-Twin setup. Given the fact that the Concept KX is a design study, do not expect the same bike to make its way to the production line soon.
