We had first seen the Royal Enfield Cafe Racer way back in the 2010 Delhi auto Expo as a concept. The Cafe Racer was on display again during the 2012 Delhi Auto Expo but Royal Enfield had not revealed when it will launch its latest bike in India.

We can say RE Cafe Racer is coming close to finishing its development cycle as Royal Enfield has displayed the motorcycle at the EICMA auto show in Milan. The Cafe Racer does not look very different from the one that was on show at the 2012 Delhi Auto Expo. However, Royal Enfield has made some tweaks to keep costs down.

The Cafe Racer is powered by 535cc engine. Do not be surprised if the bike is named as the Cafe Racer 535, similar to the Classic 500, the Thunder Bird 500 and Thunder Bird 350.
