Carole Nash Motorcycle Live: Enfield Fury

Royal Enfield showed this flat-track inspired bike called the Fury at Motorcycle Live 2010. The new bike is based on the fuel-injected Electra and features twin silencers, wide western-style handlebars, digital clocks, flat-track style glass fibre seat, a chrome headlight and chrome indicators.  The Enfield Fury will cost £5,795 when it goes on sale in the UK.

British !?!

It's a long time since Royal Enfield were a British manufacturer. Come on MCN this is elementary school stuff.

Fury..?

`Mildly Miffed` surely..?! Or `Slightly Agitated`..? Does it actually have enough power to get the back to step out of line on shale, we wonder? For all that, nice styling exercise. But the name stickers would have to go, it's just so gauche!

An unfortunate compromise.

I spoke to one of the guys on the stand about this model.

It is correct to say that these bikes aren't "British" in that they are made at a base level in India; however most of the bikes on the stand are built for the UK market.

I believe (could be wrong) that all of the bikes which aren't the base "Bullet;" so that means the Woodsman, the Trials, the Clubman AND the Fury, are all built up and customised here in the UK.

This highlights the problem facing Watsonian Squire, the Enfield importers. The fact that they have to do this customisation themself means a lot of investment. The Clubman Tank, I am lead to believe, is one of the most expensive parts to have had made for the bike. There will always be a toss up between cost of modifying and cost of sale. They could have made a true flat-tracker; (slab sided tank and the like,) but it would have cost far, far more.

Although earlier I commented and was critical of the bike, I believe it looks a bit better in the flesh than the photos. I still think, however, that the rounded 1950s tank looks out of place - but for the reasons outlined above, I can see why they did it.
