Actually I want to say that RE is already exporting this model (single seat) to Britain. Are you sure the brochure you got is for Indian models?
Yeah the brochure is the same. It is the same as the export model. Also there is a note about the silencer. the curved design shown is for off road and optional

I will scan the broucher in the morning. But anyway the same info is available on the website as well.

no its got the normal seats :( , the outlook is only classic, the silencer is the same as LB500 & its got the 5 speed gear box too. So only eye-candy classic & its too powerfull

yeah, the seat height is a bit less & you can even see the cylinder head ( if that's what they are called ) you can see them sitting on the bike, so its gives you a 1000CC bike feel ( this was noticed by my friend though )

Guys - it is confirmed. The bike IS releasing on 4th. The bikes were spotted in Goa because they are being offered for test ride at the upcoming Royal Enfield Rider Mania on Nov 17th - 20th. The website is up and indicates the test ride of the bike at the bottom.

Called up Dhone automobiles in pune, the enfield dealers - but they
keep saying 2010 as the launch date for the classic.

Anyone here in Pune knows if the classic is really being launched on the 4th of Nov?

well, I had booked a standard 350 last week, called the dealer today to check the status and was told that delivery would be delayed because of the ongoing strike in Gurgaon auto components manufacturer. So I am not sure will they proceed with the new launch as of now or not.

Excellent observation. By the way, I love your name. That's also the name of my Bullet mechanic. One day I will pay a tribute to him with a photofeature here. Is Khhalil your name?

well at least in this way you can give a "standing lift" to someone.
and i guess thats gonna be a huge hit in bollywood songs.
most of the times when heroine is the pillion rider, shes standing and waving his chunri or whatever in a way as she is trying to dry it after giving it a wash.

They cannot make different bikes without and with rear foot pegs for single seat and regular seats respectively. Anyways in India most of the bikes sold would have regular seats. Else how would a family of 4 travel or 3 friends ride together
