The Royal Enfield Cafe Racer will finally go into production after it is officially unveiled next month, it has been confirmed.

Prototypes of the bike have toured the world for the last year, being showcased at places such as the 2012 Auto Expo, but it wasn't until recently that a full launch was announced.

Also known as the Continental GT535, the bike will be the lightest Royal Enfield bike that will be available on the road.

It will also be one of the more powerful and faster models in its range, and is expected to have good suspension and handling.

The bike is expected to become one of the leading models that Royal Enfield produces, and many believe that it will be marketed at a competitive price to rival other manufacturers that are in a similar market.

It will feature a new frame that has a steel dual-cradle unit designed by Harris Engineering, which is a change to the single downtube frame that is seen on all other Royal Enfield bikes.

The launch of the new bike is part of new plans by Eicher Motors Group (the company that produces Royal Enfield bikes) to try and control the mid-sized motorbike market.

The bikes will be produced at Royal Enfield's new plant in Oragadam, India which has already started producing bikes following its opening earlier this year.

The Cafe Racer is expected to be revealed in the UK at the Ace Cafe, London next month.
