I am excited about it, what do you guys think?

Default All new RE 750 twin starts testing!

Royal Enfield's all new parallel twin oil cooled 750 has begun testing in Europe. The 750 is the second of Enfield's two new engine platforms, the first being the 410cc unit used presently in the Himalyan.

The highlights for the 750 are:

- Parallel twin aluminium block
- Prototypes are on carbs and not fuel injected
- Overhead cams
- Oil cooled
- outputs are likely to be over 50 hp and around 60 Nm respectively

This future plan has included recruiting some big names from the world of motorcycling including former Ducati and Confederate designer Pierre Terblanche, former Triumph product chief Simon Warburton, and former Xenophya Design heads Mark Wells and Ian Wride – along with the whole of the Harris Performance team too. Xenophya Design were responsible for the Royal Enfield Continental GT design but also the Triumph Daytona 675 as well as many other recent Triumph models, while Harris developed the Continental’s chassis.

Royal Enfield will launch at least three new models in the near future including a parallel-twin, according to a source at firm’s UK importer. The new models will use two new engine platforms; ‘There will be at least three of four new models in 2016 based around two new engine platforms,’ the source said.

‘There’s a new 410cc single-cylinder overhead cam and a parallel-twin.’

Default Re: Royal Enfield to add two new engine platforms : 250cc & 750cc!

This was doing rounds sometime before when those spy pics of a supposedly parallel twin engine with two carbs on a Red CGT were posted on the internet. I must say it looks good in flesh. After the legendary Interceptor the CGT will be the first motorcycle to sport a parallel twin engine of the same capacity from RE.

I for one am waiting for this engine to make it into the Himalayan as well as Tbird.

Default Re: Royal Enfield to add two new engine platforms : 250cc & 750cc!

I think its a wise move to get the 250cc. At the end the looks department is where most of the modern buys in the last couple of years have attracted more audience than the power department.

On the same frame and structure if they can fit in a 15bhp 250cc engine, RE can look at more bikes on the road. Already i personally feel RE has way better presence in road where i can spot more RE's than Splendor sometimes these days. More than the 750cc i think the 250 will be a terrific line of RE's and if they are priced in and around a L it will sell in volumes as well.

Regarding 750, it will continue to be the enthusiasts choice than regular buy like the 500

Default re: The Twin-Cylinder 750cc Royal Enfield

Excellent news. Having high hopes for this one. Hope RE doesn't skimp on power output. Being a 750cc I would be glad if it churns out at least 55-60hp, and good low-end torque. They can also make the handlebar position a little less committed.
Once this is launched, comparisons will happen invariably with the previous gen bonnies. I hope RE gets its act together, and make the fit and finish top notch. And it definitely needs to sound better! Good stuff RE!

I would say its about time they introduced a twin. The twin motor is definitely going to reduce nerve wrecking vibrations that are dominating RE engines line up currently. The dual cradle frame developed by close conjunction with Harris Performance on continental GT can handle a bigger capacity engine (rather than a puny 535CC single cylinder). I would love to see twin mills on Royal Enfield Classic and Himalayan. Fingers crossed!

Interesting information on who's involved in the development of the Engine & Bike. However, there are already a couple of active threads on this topic.

Mods please merge with http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/motorb...0cc-750cc.html (Royal Enfield to add two new engine platforms : 250cc & 750cc!) or http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/motorb...l-enfield.html

50hp and 60Nm is perfect for Indian road conditions. RE should also make ABS as standard on their entire line of motorcycles.

RE should also recruit someone from Toyota. They need maniacal focus on quality which is their biggest problem.

Default Re: The Twin-Cylinder 750cc Royal Enfield

in latest news, MCN, one of the most reputed UK based bike mag, reports on the potential launch of the RE Continental GT 750 sometime around March '17. In a potential downer, they go on to quote some not so trustworthy desi news website. But anyway..
