Royal Enfield Fury launched at Motorcycle Live

Royal Enfield's first twin exhaust bike since the early 1960's was launched at the Carole Nash Motorcycle Live show at the Birmingham NEC this week. The new flat track inspired Royal Enfield Fury was styled by Royal Enfield's UK distributor, Watsonian Squire, and is based on the fuel-injected Electra.

It is claimed the twin silencers allow the 499cc single cylinder engine to breathe more freely, producing a distinctive exhaust note.

Wide western style bars sit on a specially made billet aluminium top yoke. The traditional nacelle is replaced with a chrome headlight and digital instrument panel.

The design team at Watsonian also gave the rear end of the bike a radical makeover, replacing the twin saddle with a flat track style glass fibre seat unit, incorporating a discrete tail light and chrome mini indicators.

The bike will be on sale early next year, the Royal Enfield Fury will sell for £5500 in black and at £5895 in blue and white colour schemes.

Ride safe.
