The Australian custom bike builder will reveal its first made-in-India 1000 cc V-Twin cruiser later this year
Australian custom motorcycle builder Carberry Motorcycles that specialises in modifying Royal Enfield models has revealed its made-in-India 1000 cc V-Twin engine, priced at Rs. 4.96 lakh. Initially, this made-in-India engine will be available for exports for the existing Carberry bike owners. Carberry Motorcycles is also planning to launch the 1000 cc V-Twin engine powered cruiser in India later this year.
The new 1000 cc V-Twin engine is based on the 500 cc engine from Royal Enfield that does duty in the Classic 500. While currently, it is available for sale in the overseas markets, expect the engine to be available in the domestic market soon as well. It also comes with a primary drive and transmission.
A seven plate clutch with stronger primary chain and a 5-speed transmission and hydraulic lifters along with a heavy crankshaft are the other things come with the modified engine. Carberry Motorscycles also reveals that the oil capacity of this engine is 3.7-litre and the lifters and oil pumps operate in their own housings. This way the engine cases are saved from wear and tear.
Carberry Motorcycles also says that the 1000 cc V-Twin engine has been developed for linear power delivery and it is perfect for the customised motorcycle considering the retro design. The company is yet to receive clearance from ARAI and once it gets the permit, Indian customers can opt for buying this engine as well for their customised motorcycle.
The company is taking bookings for the engine with a 50% deposit and waiting period for the engine is four to seven months. Carberry Motorcycles currently operates from Bhilai in Chattisgarh in India. It is preparing to set up another plant in Pune soon. The Australian bike maker set up shop in the country earlier this year considering the advantage in manufacturing.
