We spot the new Royal Enfield 650cc twin due to be revealed today | News | Spied

Former AMCN road test editor PAUL young make a surprise guest appearance on the yet to be official named.

While the assembled international media were being driven around the Bruntingthorpe test track in a bus, entertained with commentary by Head of Product Strategy and Industrial Design Mark Wells, we were being shadowed by a motorcycle rider wearing familiar leathers. Former AMCN Deputy Editor Paul Young now works as a chassis development rider for Royal Enfield, and he had been given permission from the very top to provide us with a fleeting glimpse of the bike that will be revealed on Tuesday. As the bus trundled down the 3km straight, Youngy blasted past on the new 650 parallel-twin powered bike, and was gone within seconds. While it was impossible to get a good look at the bike, it sure did sound great.
