If they go mainstream they'll lose their appeal. Switching to unit construction and EFI....might as well get a Suzuki 250.

They wouldn't be able to sell bike anywhere but Asia if they didn't go EFI.

Point taken, I guess the emissions dictated it.

I bet one of the "orignal" versions would be a fun knock-about for a good price.

That's Harleys. Royal Enfield uses Lucas 'Lectrics, it just stops running for no reason (and starts again just as abruptly)...........
