Royal Enfield 700cc Twin in 2009?

Best of the Web

Royal Enfield 700cc Twin

I got the following e-mail from our own ScooterBob today, it speaks for itself.

Is it just ME – or does everyone make one of these EXCEPT Royal Enfield?? It’s a great concept … I’ll bet it’ll run, too – like a tractor on steroids! If the 700ccm version made about 42hp, it’d be on par with the engines “in the day” …. And you KNOW it’d uproot a tree stump …… I like it …. Hahaha!!!

Here is the information about the guy who built the engine:

Greetings fellow Enfield Bullet fans!

Here’s my first youtube video of the 2nd bench test run of my project- a 700cc Enfield V twin using 2 350 top ends. From sketches on paper to designing, numerous changes, 3d CAD modeling, printing drawings, building all the patterns myself, getting them cast, then machining everything myself (that began about a year ago-learnt everything as I went along) till this wonderful day (23rd JAN, about 2:00 in the morning!), it has been about 5 years! A dream from heady college days seems to be coming true, unable to sleep. Next step is installing it in the test bike, frame stretched. If you all know about the Norcroft and Carberry Enfields and are wondering why I did this anyway, well, too much time, effort and dreaming had been done when I heard of them, so inspite of some major discouragement that the enfield V twin had already been done by professionals, I decided to plough ahead anyway. NO REGRETS! Watch out for some more videos from me with info on the motor, test rides etc. coming soon!

TURN UP YOUR SPEAKERS, CRANK UP THE BASS!

Thanks for watching!
