Royal Enfield 250cc Turbo Twin Sports (1966)
Bodelwyddan Classic Car Show 20/07/2014
The Villiers 2T/4T proprietary engine enabled a host of manufacturers to offer a twin-cylinder two-stroke model in the all-important learner market during the 1960s, novice riders being restricted to machines under 250cc at the time. Royal Enfield’s offering used the later 4T engine, which featured a more angular top end incorporating cylinders with four transfer ports (the 2T had only two) and ported pistons. Otherwise the 4T remained much as its predecessor. Enfield fitted the Villiers twin into a Crusader frame, while the cycle parts were those of the Clipper model. Introduced in November 1963, the original Turbo Twin was replaced in 1964 by the Turbo Twin Sports, which featured chromium plated fuel tank and mudguards, and dropped handlebars. In this form the model remaining in production until late in 1966.
