We informed you earlier that Royal Enfield is working on all-new 750cc motorcycle, which is likely to be called RE Interceptor 750. The same 750cc parallel-twin engine will also be offered on the bigger Himalayan adventure tourer. For potential Royal Enfield buyers, RE has launched a twin-cylinder litre-class motorcycle in the Indian market. The Australian based Carberry Motorcycles entered into the Indian market last year and for all those enthusiasts waiting for the custom built 1000cc RE bike can now book one.

The new V-Twin motor is also claimed to be the first “made-in-India” 1000cc twin-cylinder motor. This engine is developed by combining two 500cc Royal Enfield engines, and is claimed to develop 52.5PS of power and 82Nm of peak torque. Currently, the most powerful RE engine is a 535cc, single-cylinder engine that is good for 29.5PS and 44Nm of torque. This powertrain is expected to be paired with a six-speed gearbox.
This new Royal Enfield 1000cc motorcycle will be manufactured in Bhilai, Chattisgarh from where it will also be exported to overseas markets.

The new RE 1000cc bike is the most powerful Royal Enfield bike in the country. It is powered by a new 1000cc V-Twin engine, which is made up of two separate engines of 500cc displacement each. This engine is also dubbed as India’s first “made-in-India” 1000cc twin-cylinder motor. It is capable of producing a maximum power output of 52.5PS and a peak torque of 82Nm. The bike features a 5-speed gearbox with a seven-plate hydraulic clutch. This twin-cylinder motorcycle sports long-stroke type engine, and it has the same thumping characteristics as the outgoing single-cylinder Royal Enfields. A fuel injected version of the bike is also in the works, though the exact launch details of the bike are yet to be revealed.
Carberry Motorcycles currently manufactures products in Bhilai, Chattisgarh, but it will soon have a new production unit in Pune, Maharashtra. The new twin-cylinder engine will be developed at Bhilai, Chattisgarh plant. This engine will also be exported to global markets. It is expected that the company could twin this engine to offer linear power delivery and lesser vibrations.
Keeping its higher capacity in mind, we believe that the bike won’t have high fuel efficiency. It is likely to return around 15kmpl in city traffic and 20kmpl on freeways.
