The Royal Enfield 650 Twin

World record (to be confirmed by FIM) for Royal Enfield.

A drag sprint bike instigated by the Special Projects Team at the Bruntingthorpe, Royal Enfield Technical Centre recently captured a land speed record of approaching 160mph at the Bonneville Salt Flats.

A production Royal Enfield 650cc twin engine prepared for the attempt by American master tuners S&S, housed in a chassis designed, developed and built by Harris Performance (a unit of Eicher Motors Ltd) and ridden by Cayla Rivas culminated in the World Land Speed record.

Conditions and “the salt” were perfect for the attempt, the S&S Royal Enfield engine ran like a dream, the chassis was stable and Cayla was on her game, the combination was a well-deserved world record.
