Royal Enfield will unveil two new, twin cylinder motorcycles on the 7th of November,2017. Both motorcycles are manufactured at Royal Enfield’s Chennai factories. They’ll be sold both in India as well as international markets.
Some report suggested that Continental GT 750 twin may not be a cafe racer. The RE is just planning to transform it into a retro classic motorcycle.
The Interceptor and Meteor/Constellation badges are likely to make a comeback!!.. Notably, Royal Enfield’s Redditch factory in England produced 700 cc and 750 cc parallel twins in the 1950s and 60s.
Siddhartha Lal, CEO of Royal Enfield, has released a teaser video of the new twin-engine motorcycle on Youtube.
Listen: how is the exhaust note of the twin pipe motorcycle??
Siddhartha Lal has stated that the bikes would be ‘highway friendly’ and the fastest Royal Enfields ever built in India.
Expected that the new parallel-twin, four-stroke engine’s capacity is not known!. As per the reports suggests it would be 700-750cc displacement. The engine will be oil cooled and fuel injected. The motor will produce 45-50 Bhp of peak power and 55-60 Nm of peak torque mated to a five-speed manual gearbox. The bikes are expected to be equipped with ABS & hydraulic disc brakes on the front and the rear wheel and will have twin exhausts.
A few days back, Royal Enfield’s President Rudratej Singh shared a picture at Twitter testing motorcycles with Siddharth Lal at RE’s UK technology center in Bruntingthorpe.
