Any new news on this beast yet? Or is it still just vaporware?
I was picturing high scrambler pipes, a raised front fender, and semi-knobby tires would make this thing really interesting.

NOT A WORD.

I hear a rumor they passed EPA in the fall, but they're waiting for their documentation to be approved or something. More red tape.

Why weren't you picturing that it looked like this?

Because I like the scrambler bike look. Reminds me of the bikes I used to ride in the early 70's.

I hope Genuine management is enjoying watching Zongshen RX3s and Benelli TNTs sell like hotcakes while Genuine struggles to bring an existing ShineRay motorcycle to the US market.

The picture of the goats and the motorcycle, that's a Mash 500, not g400c.

I hope that isn't the green paint that is being used. I had my dealer, Carlisle Cycle and Scooter change my pre-order to from red to green based on Scooter File's sneak peak of the green. It looked great with the silver. With the cream... bleh.

Genuine - when will we get it? Been waiting since Oct 2015.

You're probably right. I still like that color scheme, though. Horses for courses as our Brit cousins would say.

Or, goats for gateways.

How much for one of those goats, and are they available in a different color? I'm thinking lime green with pin stripes...

I'm back to wanting one of these again. I sort of drifted toward the Royal Enfield 500 awhile, mainly on the looks of it. Sort of soured on the cost, reliability, weight, performance, vibration, brakes & such after much research. But if this thing isn't here by the end of the year I think it's over. Reminds me of the Elio Motors car. Trying to get off the ground since 2014 & not one sold yet. Update: I just did a search & found a link to dealer accepting deposits & shows delivery date of 7/17. Maybe it's a go after all.

Heck, I'll accept your deposit for an Elio. I just won't promise that you'll get one by next August - or any other August.

The Genuine 400 will be just a nice, desirable bike. The Elio, if successful, will ignite a big change in the way we commute. I still Agee with your comparison. I,m just a bit of an Elio fanatic.

Well, take a deep breath because Royal Enfield is on the verge of announcing their 750 twin, which (I'm hoping) will be more than a pretty face. We should see an announcement by early April.

Build quality is always going to be an issue. I make no excuses. This is why I own a Honda motorbike, right? But there's something irresistible about the Royal Enfields. I think the 400C has that same appeal. I just hope Genuine can get them here for the 2017 riding season because the window of opportunity is narrowing as we speak...

I just saw this on Scooterfile. I'd probably look like a gorilla on a BMX bike, but I'll take a look.

That's excellent news! I wonder who will be the first here to get one...

Sorry Genuine, I just found my calling, a 2017 Triumph Street Scrambler. Time to start saving my pennies...
