Royal Enfield Clubman EFI
Powered by the lighter and more efficient new 500cc fuel injected unit construction engine, the Clubman now produces 28 hp, while also meeting tough Euro 3 emissions requirements. The distinctive upswept ‘Gold Star’ style silencer fitted to the right side, which is shorter and lighter than the standard part, has been re-engineered to work in harmony with the engine management unit, allowing the engine to breathe more freely and creating a classic exhaust note.
With its 4.5-gallon hand-polished aluminium tank, the Clubman immediately looks stylistically very different from the road version of the Electra, on which it is based, and this appearance is enhanced by the addition of ‘ace’ drop handlebars, rear-set footrests and a hand made fibreglass seat unit. The design team paid particular attention to ergonomics so that the riding position feels sportier, but does not sacrifice comfort or cramp the rider.
Another new feature for 2009 is the re-designed solo seat unit, which has a removable cowl that covers the pillion seat. This was produced in response to demand from customers who wanted to retain the Clubman’s sporty appearance but also required passenger-carrying capacity.
The Royal Enfield Electra EFI sells for £4,999 on the road and the price includes a 2-year warranty. For details call 01386 700907 or visit http://www.royal-enfield.com/
