New Enfields Coming? 

Royal Enfield Ltd., the Indian manufacturer of the iconic Enfield Bullet (, the single-cylinder classic first built in the early Fifties and offered today in a form almost indistinguishable from its original British brethren, is building a new engine to power future Enfields.

Coded UCE for Unit Construction Engine, it will be the first-ever unit-construction Enfield (combined engine and transmission) and – wait for it – the first to be equipped with fuel injection! Thank tightening emissions for the latter, a move that’s sure to disappoint long-time Enfield traditionalists but that should come as a boon to the less mechanically inclined, as it should guarantee a smoother, more reliable machine for the average rider.

The engine is being developed in-house, with reliability testing conducted by an outside Japanese firm. Enfield India plans on launching the engine and a new bike sometime this year. The engine was shown at last November’s International Motorcycle Show at the National Exhibition Centre in Birmingham, England (

I wonder if enfield would ever reproduce an updated Interceptor. It could be gorgeous. Most likely I wouldn't buy it, being focused on 5 Yamaha XS650s I restored and maintain. I would still like to see it happen. If it had modern machining, metallurgy, engineering, and electrics it could be a heart throb. Maybe I would buy one...
