Royal Enfield has unveiled a new twin-cylinder concept at the 2018 EICMA motorcycle show. The motorcycle gets an all-new V-Twin powerplant. Royal Enfield is yet to share specific details about the new engine. The Concept KX has been developed as a homage to the Royal Enfield KX which made ground in 1938. The design of the Concept KX is also very similar to the 1,140cc V-twin KX. However, the current engine is slated to an oil-cooled one, instead of an air-cooled vintage motor.
The original KX by Royal Enfield was marketed by the motorcycle manufacturer as the 'last word in luxury motorcycle' and had a top speed of 129kmph. The Concept KX gets the same design structure as the original KX, which also includes a dark bottle-green shade but also get modern equipment like a new handlebar, redesigned front forks, new twin-exhaust, LED headlamps and tail lamp, and new alloys.
RE claims that the development of the KX started in March 2017 as a fun exercise which later culminated into a full-fledged design and is slated to hit production soon and will be Royal Enfield's flagship offering in its product range. The Concept KX has sure made us drool but it is yet to be confirmed by RE if the KX is altogether coming to the Indian market or not.
