Flat track inspired Royal Enfield

New flat-track styled 500cc engined Royal Enfield Fury

BRITISH MANUFACTURERS have a close association with the history of flat-track racing with both Triumph and BSA taking success in the States and Royal Enfield will be adding their marque with the new flat-track inspired Fury.

The road-going flat-tracker has been styled by Watsonian Squire and and is based around Royal Enfield's fuel-injected 500cc Electra engine, and is the first new model from the British marque in 40 years to feature twin silencers.

To gain the flat-track appearance the design team replaced the twin saddle rear-end with a glass fibre single seat unit, with the tail light hidden discretely.

Commenting on the new machine, Sales Director Ben Matthews said: "Following the introduction of the new fuel injected unit engine Royal Enfield appeals to a younger and more image-conscious customer base. We have been working on the Fury for 12 months to produce a machine for this group of riders."

The Royal Enfield Fury will retail at £5,795 and can be viewed now at the Carole Nash Motorcycle Live.

I like it, and budget is the right way to go IMHO. Too much trickery would be lost on a simple bike like this. Looks like it will be a hoot to ride too, hope the pipes are noisey tho!

Love it and agree with RC8KILLA. My XT225 drum brake can sqeal the rear and is enclosed - so puts up with a UK winter better than my Tuono exposed disc brake!
