    If they have got the brains or technology to get more than 47 gee gees from a 650, guess what the quality of the other parts are ?

    They may not have been aiming for maximum BHP per cc.

    47 bhp means they can be ridden by people on restricted licences ie young people and the whole hipster wave which is the target audience.

    Loads of bikes now come either at 47 or at some other weight/bhp that means they can be restricted for newbies.

    I dont like retro bikes on the whole, I'm in my late 50's but even when I was a kid a bonnie was a leaky shitter your elder brother had.All the cool kids had Kawaskis

    But, I like the Interceptor: Thats a good looking bike and if it sounds like the one on the beginning of the film clip instead of that bloody awful wheezing and farting sound Bonnevilles make it should sell

    Any feedback yet on whether they suffer from vibrations as do other Henfield bikes?

    According to the sources, the powertrain of the Concept KX has spawned out of Eicher Motors now-defunct alliance with Polaris Industries. Maybe it will produce 80-90 bhp.
