Fury unleashed at Motorcycle Live

Developed by Royal Enfield's UK distributor, Watsonian Squire, and based on the fuel-injected Electra, the flat-track inspired Fury is being launched Motorcycle Live this November.  Produced exclusively for British customers, the Fury is first new model in 40 years to feature twin silencers, which allow the 499cc single cylinder engine to breathe more freely, producing a distinctive exhaust note.
Wide western style bars dominate the front end of the Fury, sitting on a specially made billet aluminium top yoke. The traditional nacelle, seen on all other models in the range, is replaced with a chrome headlight and digital instrument panel.

The design team at Watsonian also gave the rear end of the bike a radical makeover, replacing the twin saddle with a flat track style glass fibre seat unit, incorporating a discrete tail light and chrome mini indicators.

Its original namesake was introduced in 1959 and destined exclusively for the US export market. Less than 200 were built in Royal Enfield's Redditch factory and production ceased in the early 1960's.

Due in showrooms early next year, the Royal Enfield Fury will sell for £5500 in black and at £5895 in blue and white colour schemes.

See the Fury along with the full range of Royal Enfield motorcycles at Motorcycle Live, which opens on 27th November and runs until 5th December 2010.
