1000cc Carberry Enfields to be made in India – super special going more mainstream
The 1000cc Carberry Enfield Bullet special (essentially, two 500s bolted together) is going to go on sale to the general public.
The plan is for Australian specials builder Paul Carberry to begin building the bikes in India. Carberry is backed by Bhilai-based businessman Jaspreet Singh Bhatia.
Once the suppliers are in place and the prototypes are homologated at ARAI, production on a small scale can begin. Once production begins, India will become Carberry Enfield’s new headquarters.
The five-speed, 55 degree V-twin makes 50bhp. The engine keeps as many standard RE parts as possible, which is also behind the move to India, because all Royal Enfields are made in Chennai.
