Carberry Motorcycles set up shop in India earlier this year and has now released details on its very first Made in India 1000cc V-Twin Royal Enfield engine. Carberry Motorcycles, founded by Paul Carberry in Australia, manufactures 1000cc V-Twin engines based on 500cc Royal Enfield units and recently moved operations to India.
The 1000cc engine is ready for sale and includes the primary drive and the transmission. It inherits the long 90mm stroke from the RE and uses the cylinders, heads and a five-speed gearbox from RE as well. The frame is lengthened and strengthened and the primary drive is upgraded. It gets a heavy-duty starter motor and the clutch unit is one that is even fit for a 2-litre car engine.
The custom builder says the new engine will deliver better linear power throughout the rev range. However, since the exhaust system is frame dependent, it does not form a part of the engine unit.
The engine will have a carburetter fuel system, and will produce 52.2 hp of power and 82 Nm of torque. It is likely to catch the eye of the custom builders looking for a classic engine that is easy to work upon.
Carberry is still awaiting some clearances from ARAI for its engine, which is currently available for existing Carberry motorcycles and exports. The company is accepting bookings for the engine, which is priced at Rs 4.96 lakh, at 50 per cent deposit.
The first full fledged Carberry motorcycle will be unveiled later this year. The Australian custom builder works out of Bhilai, Chattisgarh and is eventually planning to move operations to Pune, Maharashtra.
