Video review: Royal Enfield's Classic 500 fools people into thinking we've restored it

When it comes to modern classic motoring, Royal Enfield occupies a pretty unique niche. To drive a brand new car with truly retro styling, you're paying through the nose for something like the Morgan AR Plus 4.

When we rode the Zero FX back in 2015, we instantly proclaimed it "the naughtiest of all the Zero bikes" due to its aggressive, wheelie-happy attitude and light weight. As the only remaining dirt bike in the Zero catalogue, it's a cheeky little blighter of a thing and a lot of fun. For 2016, the team in Scotts Valley has tweaked it for the road and relaunched it as a separate model - the FXS supermotard. So, right after riding the Zero DSR dual sport, we took a brief fang on the FXS to check out its supermoto chops. Video included!Read More
