Carberry Motorcycles reveals India-made V-twin engine
If you did not know about the Carberry Enfield, it is a motorcycle with a 1,000 cc engine that was created by fusing two existing Royal Enfield 500cc engines in a V-Twin format.
Paul Carberry has joint hands with Jaspreet Singh Bhatia from Bhilai, Chattisgarh in India, and shifted operations from Australia to India.
The new version combines two 500cc blocks from the latest Royal Enfield UCE engine instead of the original Carberry Enfield which uses the old cast-iron engine blocks.
It produces about 53hp and 82Nm of peak torque. This engine is available for use with existing Carberry bikes which have already been homologated, or for display purposes in India, as quoted from sources in India.
The Double Barrel 1000 will be featuring this engine and will be bearing a new double-cradle frame. It will also have a two-into-one exhaust system.
On the side note, Royal Enfield has already commenced its exports of the new Himalayan to the UK and the US.RE Himalayan in the UK is equipped with Fuel Injection (FI) as well as Anti-lock Brake System (ABS).
