Kind of fun to see, if you can sort the bike from the artsy Blackness. The standard bikes I’ve seen are quite nice!
Does that guy really talk that way at home? grin

I got to ride an Interceptor a few weeks back. It was impressive. Even compared to the T150V I was on that day power delivery was very smooth, the 270 degree crank gave it a lazy V-twin sound and it never felt like it was working hard, even when on it. Handling was neutral but light and very flickable. My only real complaint was the rear set-ish foot pegs. My legs got a bit cramped after a while. All told, this one was very nice.

A good friend of mine has had one for a couple of years.
Likes it very much and very often prefers it to his Hinkley Bonnie.
And the price point in US is extremely competitive--around $6K.

Well you have to do something to get noticed when the Mahundra BSA have taken all of the oxygen .
Lots of waffle & poffel in the narrative proving he was a voice over man with no idea about the text he was reading .
The flashy black bits are beause the bikes are yet to e buil & what you are looking at is pre production mock ups .
having customers in advertising & design ruins the magic of a lot of things .

KC in S.B. Lad YES he does indeed talk like that in real life, most annoying and after a couple of videos I've given up watching him..... thumbsup

BSA_WM20 lad, it's my belief that in a previous life that lad was a policeman and is NOT a professional talk over man.... shocked

Back to the Enfield.....

Bloody hope they've spent some money on sorting the seat out, mine was like a rock, and others I know that own them moan about the seat. Other than that in over 6000 miles I've had nothing else to complain about, in fact I'll be doing a tour of Europe on it in June.... wink


I'm from the SOUTH, the Deep South

Correct. beerchug

He talks like that because he comes from the dark damp north, not the sunny warm south like us laughing

I like the Enfield, and I very rarely hear a bad word about them, too the point where it is the best selling bike in the UK

Was hoping my “talk like that” comment would be taken in humor context, and see it was as intended!
Kent’s evaluation is a good baseline I expect, and at the price seen lately I’d be tempted to own one:
Looks old,…. Would generate the proper casual observer confusion / interest.
Not $20 K
And,… as reviewed, can go a distance!

Regardless of where he came from go back & listen to the text
Lots of nothing and lots of pseudo facts and some stuff that is plain wrong.
The sort of tosh that an advertising copywriter who has neve seen a motorcycle would write .

Eeee's from the planet Yorkshire lad!


Those enfields are a bloody good bike, i've spoken to several blokes that have 'em and
with the exception of the seat being a bit like an oif beezer (bloody hard) they have nothing
bad to say about them.

I've seen a few advertised on CL with very low miles, but still at near the MSRP. Most of the ads say something about, can't ride anymore. Maybe a lot of old guys are deciding that they need something cushier?
I am tempted by a bike which I can push a button and ride, especially one with retro cafe styling.


It's not a bug, it's 'character.'

72 T120V cafe project "Mr. Jim"
72 T150V "Wotan"
92 BMW K100rs "Gustav"
