- The new 750cc engine will be a parallel-twin motor
- The recently spotted test mule was using carburettors
- The engine is being developed at RE's Technology Centre in Leicestershire
The first thing that strikes you after looking at the photos is the fact that the parallel-twin unit is carburetted rather than being fuel injected. It will displace around 750cc or so. Therefore, we can safely assume that this motorcycle will see the light of the day in India first and then will it be exported to other countries. The reason being, that a motorcycle running carburettors will simply be non-conforming to Euro IV emission norms and therefore, won't be allowed to run on European roads. For the rest of the world, Royal Enfield will have a different game plan.
This is the first newly developed engine from Royal Enfield in the longest time and we believe that this is a sign of good things to come from the Chennai-based manufacturer. The current engines although have seen tweaks over a period of time, but have been around for decades. Royal Enfield already has a fuel-injected version of the 500cc engine on sale in Europe.
India still remains the largest market for Royal Enfield, with over 4.5 lakh units sold domestically. With the likes of Triumph, Harley-Davidson et al, Royal Enfield is keen on stepping up its game and not simply resting on laurels. The bike has been developed at the Royal Enfield Technology Centre in Leicestershire, United Kingdom.
