Motorcycle legend visits Isle of Man

"Fast" Freddie Spencer filming with Royal Enfield

Motorcycle legend and former 500cc World Champion 'Fast' Freddie Spencer has been filming on the Isle of Man, to promote the latest retro machine from Royal Enfield.

The magazine, Bike India, has come here to collect footage and take photos against the backdrop of the TT course which will appear on the front cover.

Royal Enfields are made, and are very popular, in India.

Freddie Spencer says he loves classic meetings, like the Manx Festival in the Autumn.

So how best to make it prosper?

The editor of Bike India, Aspi Bhathena, rode in the TT for two years - so it's very much a 'coming home' for him personally as well as for the bike.

You can hear the full report from Johnny Moss here, which was played on Manx Radio's Mandate programme this morning:
