Listen to the roar of a 1,000 cc Royal Enfield V-Twin CI engine by Carberry
The engine retains RE units' stroke of 90 mm.
As Royal Enfield fans eagerly wait for its twin-cylinder 750 cc motorcycle which is currently under development, an aftermarket tuner has come up with a 1,000 cc V-Twin motor for the retro-classic Indian thumpers. Carberry Motorcycle, a Royal Enfield tuning and custom specialist which was originally born in Australia, has now shifted its operations to Durg, Chhattisgarh.
Carberry’s 55-degree V-Twin motor retains RE’s long stoke of 90 mm but has a bore of 84 mm. Named as the Double Barrel 1000, the air-cooled, carburated motor dishes out 56.32 bhp at 4,800 rpm and a hefty torque of 108 Nm at 5,250 rpm.
The motor is compliant with the BS4 norms and Carberry is already working on a fuel-injected version. The firing up video shows that the litre class V-Twin settles into a character-rich rumbling idle. The Royal Enfield motorcycle looks majestic with this prominent engine mounted on its frame.
The dual chrome exhausts, massive cylinder heads and a bulky transmission case send out a clear message that this motorcycle is not to be messed with. Listen to the roar of this engine.
Coming back to RE’s 750 cc motorcycle which is currently being developed at the OEM’s UK R&D centre, the first spyshots have emerged recently. The new engine is likely to debut in a cafe racer.
