Well, that was a blast and a half.
The past few days have been stuffed with complimentary flights, meals and wheels – unforgettable company and an exclusive scoot or three.
If you haven’t heard, Royal Enfield invited WBW to attend the reveal of their Super Meteor 650 to the American masses – a bike well worth the 10-hour layover at YYZ proper, as I soon found out.
Luckily for us, RE’s event included a full day(ish) in the saddle testing the nimble cruiser along the Lone Star State’s topography, concluding with the official release of the bike’s pricing that evening to top-tier platefuls of munchies.
Fancy a guess at what Royal Enfield has priced their newest brainchild (and when it’ll be in US dealerships)?
