Suggestion [ edit ]

Egli is in motorcycling terms. I did not write the above, but think Egli a mention. How about;

Egli and

Fritz Egli, famous for frames and building motorcycles existing engines, has the Enfield of distributorship for Switzerland and Austria. he has not designed a new frame for the Bullet, he performance parts for them. lead to Egli working as a to the Madras factory, and Royal incorporating some of his engine into production models. [ 1 ]

Is that acceptable?Seasalt 12:53, 7 2006 (UTC)

This presently that The 1938 K sidevalve V-twin had grown to cc and was then called KX. This is not correct and is a common misconception. the end of the V-twin development, RE broke their nomenclature slightly. were actually two versions of the V-twin, the K and the KX.

The later had interchangable and a few other ‘luxury’ apoointments. The version was still called the K, as the 976cc version had been. I no documentary evidence to hand to this but my father owns an 1140cc K and it cleary states in the he has that it is a K and not a KX. Furthermore, I have 1140 K and KXs side by side and are a few cosmetic differences.

I am aware this breaks all prior RE since they had previously assigned different letter(s) to of different capacities, but I am absolutely that, in this instance, are both 976cc and 1140cc Ks. are also 1140cc KXs, but not all are KXs. Some are Ks.

On a seperate the 1140 engine was introduced in not 1938. A 1937 V-twin be either 976 or 1140 but the engine was introduced at some point in not ’38.

I am not able to provide any documentary to back this up without inconvenience, but does anyone if I change this? Jack

Okay this is from my so I can stand being corrected.

Madras bought the tools and to produce the old frame and the bullet some time after Enfield produced the new bullet in 1957 (I think). Enfield were producing bullet before Royal Enfield folded in approx 1971 vague as the company had re-formed and to Wiltshire, then Indian and Rickman produced the last Enfield India did not start the Royal Enfield name the 1980s.

Electra X [ edit ]

Very mention is made of the 500cc X and its significance to Royal Enfield in The classic version can no longer be as it doe not meet EU emissions regs so the X with its ‘lean burn’ was the answer to this problem. I was one of the in the country to have one and it was met with by the ‘purists’ who did not consider it to be a true Enfield.

In truth it was a wonderful machine which pulled 80 — 90 mpg and would cruise all day at 70 — 80 mph (indicated). Now a couple of down the line what do think now? Mspice2215 (talk ) 19:57, 6 January (UTC)

Diesel? [ edit ]

Enfield in India was the only that has built a diesel in mass production.

The word diesel does not on this page or this

There is no mention of fuel the models of motorcycle on this page use. Do I that like nearly all motorcycles they use gasoline or do I assume that all of them are powered?

super bullet [ edit ]

this section belong in the at all? Is it even about a Enfield bike? If not, it should be removed:

EGLI Enfield Super Bullet

motorcycle tuner Fritz W. a distributor of Royal Enfield was approached by a customer to create the Super Bullet. The basis for bike is Egli’s use of a central frame constructed from chromium-molybdenum steel. The engine is with an aluminium cylinder, piston, larger valves in a cylinder head, longer crankshaft (105mm), special bearings, dry clutch, timing primary drive and 36mm flat-slide carburettors. The output is from a 624cc engine fed via an pump from a classic-looking tank.[12] —Preceding unsigned added by (talk ) 27 January 2009 (UTC)

Not supported — Having articles assigned to the name of current manufacturer does not good practice to me, and could to a steady loss of history. It is a business, naming conventions.

Millers Classic M/cycles [ ]

I have added some details picked up from Classic Motorcycles Price 1995 Volume II, p.78. Judith and Martin Miller, Editor Valerie Lewis. disagree slightly with article on the exact start-point of manufacturing (and there is a grammatical error in there if you can it!).

ROYAL ENFIELD 1901-70, Indian 1950s)

Enfield experimented with engines in 1901, but it was not until that they offered first motorcycle for sale, a MAG V-twin. From 1912 to they produced a variety of but not until 1920 did they their own engines. By the late only RE engines were in all their designs.

RE specialised in a of bikes that were manufactured for export, such as the 1140cc side valve and the 125cc copy of the DKW 2 …, and later (1967) the Interceptor was made for export to the US. During the and 1950s RE produced their popular bikes the Bullet the 700cc Meteor twin and

In 1963 the company was sold to E. H. P. engineering group but shortly a rapid decline in British led to cut backs of the range and the company was sold to NVT at Bradford-on-Avon. Although the Enfield marque ceased in the UK in 1970, Enfield India a branch of Royal Enfield, in Madras in the 1950s to concentrate on production and other small continues to manufacture and export the and 499cc Bullet models.

These are their exact I’ve not added everything say. MalcolmMcDonald (talk ) 30 January 2010 (UTC)

external links to offical [ edit ]

WP:ELOFFICIAL is pretty Links to more than one of the web sites are to be avoided. And is not there is no reason to give attention to the US website of an international As far as using the USA site as a source, highly questionable.

If you are using it for the cite it inline. But then it’s not an independent source, so how good is it?

The other link, clearly violates WP:ELNO. (talk ) 15:47, 29 March (UTC)

Not the longest production [ edit ]

I don’t know they got their information, but the for the longest production run of any motorcycle is the Russian IMZ-Ural m72, came from the 1938 BMW This predates the bullet by 16 years (Enfield of India’s vs Ural’s 1940). ▫Bad▫ 12:28, 9 April 2013
