Power and Specifications

A very British motorbike

Before stripping the donor bike, we ran it on the dyno to get some base figures. This is what we found.

Capacity 1050cc
Bore x Stroke 79.0 x 71.4mm
Compression Ratio 12.0:1
Fuel System Multipoint sequential electronic fuel injection
Throttle Body Diameter 46.0mm
Maximum Power 121bhp @ 9250rpm
Maximum Torque 71 ft/lb @ 7550rpm
Transmission 6 speed

Enigma 1050 is about real world usability, not big power outputs. On the right you can see what we found on the dyno and you can also see what we love about this engine. Look at the torque curve – nice and flat. And the power curve, wonderfully linear.
This adds up to an engine with bags of pull from almost anywhere in the rev range – ideal for road use. 121 bhp is enough to propel the standard bike to a top speed of 152mph, 0-60 in 3.17 seconds and 0-100mph in 6.76 seconds. That’s plenty quick enough to give us the right balance between power output and handling.

We’ll add a bit more power with an Austin Racing exhaust and a fuel remap which will be carried out by PDQ Motorcycle Developments. There’ll be a bit less weight as well so we will be able to improve on the standard power to weight ratio of 0.55bhp per kilogram. Performance will be more than adequate and the delivery will be superb.
