Royal Enfield Fury 500
Expected Launch Date: Apr 2016
Royal Enfield India is going to launch its iconic model ‘Fury’ in India. Fury is based on the model manufactured by the company from 1959-1963 and which was built exclusively for the US market and only 191 units were ever produced. The name Fury was later on used for a licensed copy of the German-built Zundap KS175, but this fury resembles the original Fury a lot. Launched in the UK in 2011, the Fury is now targeted towards the Indian market.
The Fury is based on the Royal Enfield Bullet Electra and uses a 499cc single cylinder fuel injected engine. The bike will produce 28bhp of maximum power at 4250rpm and a 41.3Nm of maximum torque at 4000rpm, it is the same motor that is being used in the Classic 500 and the Upcoming Thunderbird 500. Royal Enfield Fury is equipped with western-style handlebars mounted over a billet aluminum top yoke. Unlike other modern Royal Enfields, the Fury uses a chrome headlight and a digital instrument panel. The Electra’s twin saddle is replaced by a flat track-style fiberglass single seat unit with incorporated tail light and it is also the first Enfield to sport twin exhaust pipes.
The stylish halogen headlamp placed in the front of the bike is to offer classy and elegant looks and also clear vision at night. The stylish turn indicators of the bike are gracefully placed near the handlebars and look very aristocratic maintaining the trend of the company.
The Fury looks more like a hybrid between a café racer and an Electra, it is a sharp handler and is something one would love to throw around the corner of a race track. The retro looks of the Fury will attract a lot of buyers towards the bike. Royal Enfield plans to launch the bike later in the last quarter of 2012. The bike should be priced between 1.3-1.7 lakh INR. We would be watching the development on the launch of this bike and will be the first ones to let you know about it.
