Royal Enfield Fury

By Kevin Ash - 15/01/2012

Royal Enfield is releasing a new 2011 model called the Fury at the NEC show. The bike is based on the fuel-injected Electra with a flat-track-inspired cosmetic makeover, although it‘s Enfield‘s first model for 40 years with a racy twin exhaust.

As well as the circus colour schemes, the Fury is fitted with high and wide handlebars and a flat-track type fibre glass seat unit. The traditional Enfield Nacelle is gone, and in its place is a chrome headlight and digital instrument panel. The bike also gets mini chrome indicators.

The 28bhp, 499cc single-cylinder engine is untouched, although the twin silencers are claimed to allow more free breathing and might even release another horsepower. So be careful.

Enfield‘s UK sales director Ben Matthews says the aim is to appeal to a younger and more image-conscious audience than the traditional customers.

Prices to be announced at the NEC show.
