British sidecar firm Watsonian Squire have developed a new sidecar outfit in tandem with the Royal Enfield Himalayan

The firm are using the low-capacity adventure bike as a test mule for their latest 'International' sidecar, which draws inspiration from the firm’s original version launched back in 1938.

After production was halted by the Second World War, the original motorcycle accessory was then not available to the public until 1950, in a year where it was also raced in the International Six Days Trial at Llandrindod Wells, in Wales.

Much like the original International, this has been designed primarily for road use and features a glass fibre body with aluminium panels and mudguard, mounted on a tubular steel frame that has been powder coated for durability using expoxy resin.

Beneath the seat is a large luggage locker for all of your belongings and the 16-inch spoked third wheel – complete with a black powder-coat finish - is mounted on hydraulic suspension and shod with a Bridgestone Trail Wing tyre.

Available in Spring 2019, the unit costs £3995 plus £450 for the fitting kit. If you can’t wait that long though, you can see the finished prototype on the Watsonian stand (2D10) at Motorcycle Live at the NEC in Birmingham.
