The thumps are back! That immortal feeling of riding a Royal Enfield is back again, only in a more polished and appealing avatar. It’s nice to see how heritage blends with modern-day appeal, something the RE was struggling with their single-cylinder bikes. But not anymore. And these emotions will flow down the minute you hop on it, the switchgear is premium, the seat finish is rich, the alloys look nice and the Supernova Brown looks opulent. What’s remarkable is the addition of the Tripper App, it’s a long-distance hauler, and having navigations visible on the screen is just brilliant. Time to test it out in the open, and lucky for us we now have the official riding season opening up. Winter is here, time to hop on that machine and explore the open.
