The original model, dubbed ‘Carberry Double Barrel’ motorcycle manufactured in Australia runs on a 1000cc V-Twin cast-iron engine used in the older REs, though the new 55-degree V-Twin engine is sourced from the UCE derivative. The new engine features a dual carburettor set-up and is tuned to put out 52bhp against 82Nm of torque. Transmission duties are carried over by the 5-speed gearbox that comes with a seven-plate clutch. It additionally comes equipped with a heavy-duty starter and a heavy crankshaft.
The lifters and pump oilers get their own housings, while the exhaust system is separate from the engine system. A fuel-injected version of the bike is on the cards, though it is yet not clear as to when will it be launched.
The new Carberry Double Barrel will underpin the double cradle frame and will borrow a bunch of components with Royal Enfield. It will additionally use a host of custom components for the engine and bike along with disc brakes, muscular forks and standard ABS.
