Besides the above-mentioned features, nothing much has been revealed about features integrated in Royal Enfield Café Racer but if the reports and rumors are to be believed, it is revealed that it adorns the same tank as integrated in earlier variants of Royal Enfield manufactured during the late year of 1960s.
