This uses the Meteor 350 motor but with metal fenders and the classic bullet goat head front end. Sadly it has plastic side cover have been reported to be used instead of metal. It comes in 11 deferent colors. I hope this comes to the US and hopefully a 500 version will soon follow.

I am not a fan of that look and it seems overly clunky looking especially the gap at the rear wheel. Best look was the UJM bikes from the 70's and 80's

I like the classic looks of this bike, though I think that this picture doesn't do it justice. The official RE introduction video shows different varieties and there are some that I would really like to have. It is a pity that they dropped the kick start: if it suffers from the same battery drain as the Hima a kick start would be very practical.

As it’s been said before “Beauty is in the eye you of the beholder.” This design is from 1948 and early fifties Bullet as we call it the goat head with the two park lights or better known as Pub lights up front. When you parked on the narrow streets in front of the pub in the UK you had to leave your park lights on. I also prefer all metal fenders over plastic. I personally love this classic look, but then that’s me.

Plus one! I love this look and I’m sad to see the kick start go. Many times I have used it on my old Bullets and Classic as the battery goes bad or I do something stupid as to leave the key on for hours. That happened only once but I was glad to have the back up kick start. I own five of these older bikes from the AVL motor 2007 Bullet 500 and up to the last UCE motor 2020 Trials 500.

here is one explanation on why there are no no kick starts on newer bikes.

I have kick started my old UCE EFI 500 bikes may times with a low battery that would not turn over the motor but never with a totally dead battery. A dealer some eleven years ago when I bought my first RE told me you could hook-up a nine volt battery and that would be enough to power the EFI to kick start it. But then how often do you have a nine volt transistor battery on you when you need to kick start your bike?
