Carberry Motorcycles has launched the Carberry Double Barrel 1000 in India at a price of INR 7.35 lakhs, ex-factory.
The Carberry Double Barrel 1000 is homologated, and 29 motorcycles are available in the first batch. The booking amount stands at INR 1 lakh. Delivery time ranges from 5-10 months, depending upon how early the booking is. Carberry launched the engine in August.
The Carberry Double Barrel 1000 makes use of the 1000cc V-twin that’s built using two 500cc Royal Enfield engines. The carburetted engine comes with a 5-speed gearbox and generates 52 PS of power and 82 Nm of torque. The engine nestles inside a custom 50 mm twin downtube frame and uses the powerplant as the stress member.
The bike comes with 35 mm telescopic front forks with 130 mm travel; and twin gas-charged shock absorber at the rear with 5-step adjustable preload and 80 mm of travel. The bike comes to a halt using a 280 mm front and a 240 mm rear disc, with dual channel ABS.
Regarding service of the bike, Carberry says it can be done with the help of a local mechanic as it shares most of the components with Royal Enfield bikes. The company can also advise the mechanic on techniques and procedures, or it can be returned to them for a factory build (for Indian customers only). Otherwise, Carberry can send out a mechanic to the customer’s place. Customer will have to bear the transportation cost.
The bike competes with the Triumph Street Twin and the Harley Davidson Iron 883 in the segment. The fact that this motorcycle is hand-built sets it apart from the rest.
