We have done it again!!! After telling the world about the existence of a sub 400cc, all new model from Royal Enfield that will deal with the passion of the more adventurer kind among us. Now, we break an even bigger news, and remember that, we broke it before anyone could even confirm its existence.
Here it is, the pictures you see below are the first ever pictures of the mythical Royal Enfield 750cc engine under testing. From the pictures it is clear that the all new Royal Enfield 750cc engine is indeed an in-line twin.
Royal Enfield 750cc Engine - What to Expect?
Expected to be powered by essentially the same engine architecture that will figure in the new 375cc powered Royal Enfield's, albeit in an inline form for the 750. The engine as we have heard is going to be the most refined and vibration-free engine Royal Enfield has ever produced, and is also going to be the most powerful modern engine too, for the legendary brand.
From the pictures, it is evident that the engine's fuel/air supply is taken care by carburettors, rather gigantic they seem, instead of the FI technology. Leaving Fuel Injection out will enable Royal Enfield to decrease production costs and thus will mean that the price of the bike which gets the engine will be a highly competitive one for such high cc motorcycle.
It has an Oil Cooler!!! - Does it mean improved Performance??
It is also evident that an oil cooler does duty this time around to make sure the engine doesn't heat up too much, and it might also mean that the engines may see a higher rpm limits than what we have seen on REs till date. Along with a comparatively smaller engine block as compared to the present crop of Royal Enfield the all new 750cc, gets single sparkplug every cylinder for the firing duties as per the pictures. This is interesting, as it would mean the long stroke low compression idea remains while the sir intake should have increased more than that of ,say, the Continental GT's 535cc engine.
It is interesting to note that the twin inline 750cc engine is compact enough to fit perfectly into a Continental GT's chassis, which would make it perfect for duties in a lot many models and not just the laid back tourers that Royal Enfield has in its current portfolio.
Royal Enfield 750cc Engine's expected Power figures!!
We believe that that 750cc Engine will arrive with power figures around 45-50bhp while it is sure to be a torque monster and we will not be surprised to see this engine producing more than 60Nm of torque.
Now we will leave you to analyse the pictures and do let us know if we have missed something!! Stay with us as we bring more in depth coverage of this BIG BIG NEWS!!!!
