Royal Enfield unveils its first 650cc air cooled parallel Twin engine

Indian heavy weight motorcycle leader Royal Enfield unveiled its first modern twin-cylinde cylinder engine at its new Technology Centre in Leicestershire, England.

This new 650cc air cooled parallel twin engine will power the next generation of Royal Enfield motorcycles. With the new 650 cc twin engine, the two-wheeler maker will develop a global platform that would carry the Royal Enfield legacy and character into modern context.

The new platform is a 4 stroke, single overhead cam, air-cooled, 648cc parallel twin cylinder engine developed by Royal Enfield’s technology teams in UK Technology Centre and Chennai.

Precisely engineered to be able to accelerate and deliver higher power and torque at lower RPMs, this new engine has an output capability of 47bhp and 52Nm torque. This makes the ride experience hassle-free and smooth.

The engine maintains an under-stressed 9.5:1 compression ratio and the fuel injection system ensures that smooth, accessible power is available at all times.
