@ Desideep, i'd definitely agree that might be the closest to an interceptor.

Default Twin Cylinder Bullets could be back soon!

Folks,

I blogged about a recent development stating that Royal Enfield is conceptualizing twin cylinder bullets.

An excerpt from my blogpost that might make Bulleteer Bhpians smile->

Just before jumping off the helm at Royal Enfield, straight to the Eicher Group’s board, R.L. Ravichandran has just made an announcement that has made my day and will make many Bulleteers’ day. Royal Enfield is conceptualizing twin cylinder Bullets in the capacities of 750cc and 1000cc.

Breaking er’ Stunning: Royal Enfield 750-1000cc Twin Cylinder Bullets on the cards | Indian Cars & Motorcycles Blog

Cheers,

Jay

It's nothing new, this news has been doing rounds since quite some time now. In fact, a member of the Road survivors group (chandigarh) is close to a guy in Enfield & he told us about it some 2 years back. However, we also learnt that the engine is about 650-700cc (not a V twin from what we were told then), but Enfield are not able to get things straight for the emission norms.

There was nothing more ever heard about this engine till now (from your post) & looking at the way Enfield is focusing on UCEs, it might be based on the same design (unit construction). Mr. Ravichandran having expressed this on camera does make it authentic now & maybe it's time we catch hold of our Enfield guy

Ride safe.

I just picked up this beautiful machine today. Original condition, except the mufflers. Too bad India has crappy import laws, then again Royal Enfield survived in India and saw the end in England. any ways enjoy the "barn find" pictures.

The current dealer of RE in mangalore had one parked in his workshop for repair. On inquiring I found out that it belongs to the owner. The Motorcycle had split seats and the mufflers looked in bad condition but overall it seemed to be in good condition. The headlamp and steering brace were similar to the one pictures above.

A few pics from my side... This a 1954 Bullet chassis and tank and the engine was imported with special request. It belongs to Mr. Francis whose garage is in Dadar mumbai. The guy had a life long dream to build one of these and had an experience of over 50 years in bullet.

This was the last RE motorcycle produced in UK when they moved the plant to Chennai,IND

Any suggestions on how much the price for this classic would run upto?

You can buy a used INTERCEPTOR in America if you have deep pockets
but whether importing it officially into india is possible i dont know.
Transfer of resi is one way. I doubt if there are any interceptors in India. Better to buy a meteor or super meteor in India.
there is one for sale in the classified section.
