Royal Enfield Fuel Injection engine
Royal Enfield unveiled the first product of its next generation engine. The 500cc UCE (Unit Constructed Engine) or integrated gearbox engine is equipped with Fuel Injection technology. The 500cc EFI will first feature in Royal Enfield Electra. The 500cc UCE still features pushrod operation of the two valves per cylinder but is otherwise very modern, with roller hydraulic lifters, crossover gearbox, and a gerotor oil pump. With the introduction of new bullet engine, royal enfield, signalled its decision to phase out older iron cast engines. In england, France and other european countries, the classic iron blocked, four speed bullet will be on sale until the end of 2008. From 2009 onwards all Bullets will be powered by unit construction electronic fuel injection (Euro III complyable) engine. Enfield is also believed to be studying the development of a large capacity parallel-twin motor for export markets. Indian market will soon get a 350cc UCE engine.
gone are the days…
Having a bike that you can tune, rebuild, repair, and maintain on your own at home really is a great thing. With the unit construction engine(UCE) and electronic fuel injection, the new Enfield will probably put an end to that, and it’ll be like a Honda, if anything breaks, you have to take it to the dealer, because there’s no way in heck that you can fix anything in it.
