Royal Enfield top gear

British made five speeder now available for Royal Enfields

Designed to look like the old four-speed box, it has an entirely revised set of gears and selector assembly proven and developed in competition and on the road. While the Indian made five-speed gearbox is a big step forward over the older four-speed models, the new gearbox takes this much further. The ease of the gearchange is something that would be expected on a modern Japanese bike. Hitchcocks freely admits it has been one of its hardest and longest developments but one where the final result far exceeded its expectations. There are road and competition ratios available in a one up, four down format and a comparison chart is available which compares the new ratios to the standard internal ratios of the original four-speed gearbox.

This gearbox is a straight replacement for any Enfield (Redditch or Indian made) four-speed gearbox. It is also a suitable replacement for the Indian made five-speed gearboxes however, please contact us as we will require additional information on the configuration of your bike.

Cost is £2975 plus VAT and postage.
