Thump lovers rejoice, Chennai based Royal Enfield has launched an all new Electra with Twin Spark Unit Construction Engine (UCE). The engine has been borrowed from its sibling Thunderbird Twinspark. With a slew of launches in the past few months along with announcements of expansion plans, Royal Enfield has cleared the air that they want to take it headon.
Similar to Thunderbird, Electra with two spark plugs produces 19.8 horses and a mammoth torque of 28Nm. Clearly, these are good signs that traditional bike makers like Royal Enfield are also concentrating on revolutionizing their bikes with better and latest technology. According to the company, the bike has become more frugal along with better power spread. The bike comes with features like Gas charged shock absorbers at the rear, multi focal headlamp, 280mm disc brakes, redesigned silencer etc. This thumper would be available in three colors viz Black, Red and Silver.
Electra Twinspark would be available in two variants. The kick start version would retail for 90k whereas the self start version would retail for 94k, (both ex showroom Delhi).
