2011 Royal Enfield Fury Revealed
Flat track-inspired model only for UK
The new Royal Enfield Fury (definitely not to be confused with Honda’s chopper) revives a model named first used by the Indian company from 1959-1963. Built exclusively for the U.S. market, only 191 units were ever produced. The name Fury was also later used for a licensed copy of the German-built Zundapp KS175, but the new 2011 model more closely resembles the original Fury.
Like the original Fury, the current model is based on the Royal Enfield’s Bullet platform, specifically the Bullet Electra. The 499cc single-cylinder Fury is fuel injected and is equipped with twin silencers, the first Royal Enfield model in 40 years with twin pipes. No performance figures were released but the standard fuel-injected Royal Enfield Bullet engine claims 28hp at 5250 rpm and 30.5 ft-lb. at 4000rpm.
The 2011 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.
While the original Royal Enfield Fury was made for the U.S., the 2011 version will be a U.K. exclusive, developed by Royal Enfield’s British importer Watsonian Squire.
