Review: 2012 Royal Enfield Clubman EFIJune 1, 2012 by: Rituraj Mishra
The 2012 Royal Enfield Clubman EFI gets the new 500 cc fuel injected unit construction engine. The new engine is lighter and more efficient than the previous one. It gives out 28 hp and still meets the stringent Euro 3 standards for emissions.
A 4.5 gallon hand-polished aluminum tank sparkles and stands out in the crowd of other Enfield’s. Ace drop handlebars, rear set footrests and handmade fiberglass seat give it it’s unique identity as it does not look the bullet Electra on which it is based.
The riding position gets sportier without compromising on the comfort level of the ride. 5 speed transmission along with engine gets you a whoel new level of performance and at 187 kgs it isn’t that heavy.
2012 Royal Enfield Clubman EFI is powered by the lighter and more efficient new 500cc fuel injected unit construction engine; the Clubman produces 28 hp and meets tough Euro 3 emissions requirements for a cleaner ride. With its 4.5-gallon hand-polished aluminium tank, the Clubman immediately looks stylistically very different from the road version of the Electra, on which it is based, and this appearance is enhanced by the addition of ‘ace’ drop handlebars, rear-set footrests and a handmade fibreglass seat unit. The riding position feels sportier, but does not sacrifice comfort or cramp the rider.
