Soon after launching its 1.0-litre V-Twin carbureted engine for Royal Enfields, Carberry Motorcycles has launched its first made-in-India motorcycle. Order books have opened. Price starts from Rs 7.3 lakhs.
Jaspreet Singh Bhatia of Carberry Motorcycles revealed that their new 1.0-litre V-Twin motorcycle features a double-cradle chassis which has been developed from scratch unlike the earlier versions which employed reinforced Royal Enfield frame. However, the new motorcycle continues to resemble Royal Enfield Classic aesthetically. The idea is to give the customers a clean design which is easily customizable.
The new Carberry V-Twin Motorcycle is ready and the prototypes with carbureted version of the engine have already crossed combined test mileage of 50,000 km over all sorts of terrains including three trips to Leh, Ladakh.
Bhatia also added that a BS-IV compliant fuel-injected version of the engine will be introduced alongside the motorcycle. The carbureted version is tuned to deliver around 56 hp and is mated to a 5-speed transmission by a 7-plate clutch. The exhaust system will adopt two-into-one configuration. The litre-class custom motorcycle will employ disc brakes at either end, supported by ABS.
Each Carberry V-Twin motorcycle will be assembled completely by a single technician at the company’s Bhilai facility in Durg district of Chhattisgarh. Carberry has already received around 50 enquiries for the motorcycle, mostly from overseas customers. The company aims to build around 150 units by the end of next year.
