Stumbled across a Royal Enfield Cafe Racer that they have came out with for 2013.  Looks pretty cool but I doubt it has any performance updates.

They're not out in India yet.

It's more than a cosmetic update to the standard Bullet, but it's not exactly a Norton...

They have a new double-downtube frame on it, and 41mm fork tubes vs. the old 35mm, and a rear disc brake.  It's the new-style unit engine (edit: which means fuel-injected too), and they claim some kind of performance improvements through, I think, sportier cams than the standard Bullets.

Stock, maybe if you dropped it out of a plane?  (apologies to Yinzer...)

There's a company Ace Engineering LLC that does serious performance work (in relative terms) for the old-school engines, and they're working on a unit engine job now.  I bet it could hit the Ton after they've had their way with it.

What the hell do you guys want? A modern bike that looks like its old skin deep or an old bike built today the same as back then?

If your going authentic, as I have read from Beach' most bikes back in the day did not do the ton, it was the goal, it was the magic number.

Those rear shocks and fender hoops gotta go but I like it.

Id ride it.  I have absolutely no problem with curry or Indian Enfields.  Cant "do the ton"? who cares?  That's the magic number, something to work towards.  I can buy a $600 eighties sportbike that will do the ton all day everyday..
