Default Bullet lovers rejoice - Someone else built a enfield v-twin

We all know that the Carberry Enfield twin has been around for a while. Now a Desi bhai in the land of milk and honey has built himself a 700cc v twin.

Aniket vardhan has built himself a vtwin bullet . In his own words:

"I am very happy to share with you the news of the promising first fire-up of my 5 year long project- a 700cc V twin Enfield engine. Sketched,designed, CAD modeled, built the patterns in the woodshop myself, did get the castings poured at a proper foundry, machined the whole thing myself too. This is the short version of the story- lots of obstacles on the way, will tell more later.

If you guys are wondering WHY DO IT, the Carberry's already there, well, I had a lot of effort and dreaming put in already, and I decided to go ahead anyway for the sheer enjoyment and learning experience. As it turned out, the Carberry, gorgeous though it is, is well beyond what I can afford.

The video is not great quality, but please turn up the sound and bass:



More later, next step is installing in the frame, waiting for warmer
weather and test riding!"

Thanks for that. The website does mention:

If you require only the motor, transmission and frame kit only the price is $A10,000

Thats 3.1 lakhs.

Crazy pricing.

Quite good going for Aniket, hope to see him rolling out this in production like carberry has so we can see some out on the roads. Royal Enfields: He built his own Royal Enfield V-twin

He already has quite a good number of prospective buyers lined up already if he's gonna build a batch of those. I hope he does

Btw don't forget our own desi, made in bangalore, V-twin engine built on a Fiero platform by Venugopal, a fellow member.

Two desi creations to be proud of i say

Beautiful! Outstanding!!

The engine actually looks like its factory manufactured...

I really hope someone updates this thread as and when he actually gets a bike rolling with this monster!

And I wish him luck so that he gets a working model to our shores with an affordable tag!
