Bookings for the Royal Enfield Electra 5S UCE now open
During the 2010 Indian Auto Expo, Royal Enfield gave us a glimpse of their future with the UCE(unit construction engine) platform. Now, the range of 350cc and 500cc UCE engines are all set to power several Royal Enfield models across their product line up. The first in this line of existing models getting the new UCE engines is the Royal Enfield 5S model. Motorcycle buyers can book the Royal Enfield Electra 5S UCE at their nearest Royal Enfield showrooms now.
The unit construction engine(UCE) will bring in more reliability, lesser fuel consumption and Euro 4 emission norms compliance. Along with this, performance will improve vastly, especially when compared to the older pre-unit construction cast iron engines.
The Royal Enfield Electra UCE is expected to cost almost 10% higher than the outgoing model, which in our opinion is a small price to pay for the added reliability, performance and low maintenance the new engine brings into the equation.
And like always, we’re bringing you this bit of news before anyone :-) in the Indian blogosphere.
