Royal Enfield To Tackle American Flat Track

Royal Enfield is partnering with Moto Anatomy, a racing school run by racer Johnny Lewis, to have an American Flat Track entry this season. Lewis will ride a new Royal Enfield FT race bike based on the brand’s INT650 model.

“This racing effort is unprecedented in Royal Enfield’s North American history,” said Breeann Poland of Royal Enfield. “We are thrilled to bring the Royal Enfield brand to more enthusiasts and this is a great opportunity to do that on a major scale.”

Lewis won’t compete in the full slate of races. He’s expected to debut the Royal Enfield FT at the Laconia Short Track event in New Hampshire on June 13.
