The twins are powered by an air/oil cooled, parallel-twin cylinder 648 cc motor. The fuel injected motor churns out 47 bhp at 7,100 rpm and 52 Nm of torque at 4,000 rpm. The rider has plenty of torque at disposal across the rev range and the motorcycles don't seem to go out of breath even when you max out the throttle. The engine is mated to a 6-speed gearbox (first time by Royal Enfield) and this unit is one of the smoothest gearboxes the brand has ever built, all thanks to the slip-assist clutch equipped in both the motorcycles. ABS comes standard on both for additional braking assistance.
