Default a rose by any other name

This is an imitation/copy/knock-off (pick one) of a Bonneville.

Smaller Brixton motorcycles are already on sale here (apparently) so if you want to support the CCP, head round to your dealer and order one (delivery next year).

I think it is past the stage of any retro looking bike being a Bonneville copy.
After all, Kawasaki were building their retro 650 twin in the 1960's I think.
ps I don't want to support the CCP though !

'Brixton might share its name with a district of London, but the company is neither British nor does it have genuine 1960s heritage. It’s part of the Austrian-owned KSR Group, which imports various brands to Europe and has its own design and styling centre in Austria. The bikes themselves are made in China by Gaokin, albeit to Brixton’s design and specifications.
Of course, modern Bonnevilles aren’t made in the UK either; Triumph’s three factories in Thailand do the heavy lifting when it comes to manufacturing, leaving the Hinckley operation to focus on design and building small runs of special ‘TFC’ bikes.'
