Taurus was a 325cc diesel motorcycle, specially made for India in order to kerb the rising trend of fitting custom diesel engines in 350cc Bullet frames. It was once a household name but soon vanished with implementation of stricter emission norms. Taurus looked almost the same as standard Bullet but has a different scene when its engine bay is considered. This typical Royal Enfield Taurus from ParPin’s garage not just looks clean but even carries the most neatly arranged diesel engine. Looking at a closeup shot for its engine may create a false feeling of looking at a brand new engine.
They have used Army Green for all body components while remaining parts are finished in Black for a perfect contrast. In fact, the restoration and paint scheme makes it hard to guess that this bike existed couple of decades back. They have used three spoke Black alloy wheels in place of stock spoke rims. As it existed before the major change in Royal Enfield’s engine lineup, the left side brake layout makes it even more unique to drive. Taurus came with a chrome exhaust while ParPin’s Garage used the same exhaust with Matt Black finish. The seat used here remains the same as stock 325cc Taurus.
Royal Enfield’s diesel engine was good for just 6.5 BHP @ 3600 rpm of maximum power and 15 Nm @ 2500 rpm of maximum torque. Enfield claimed around 70 kmpl of real world mileage. This made Taurus the least fuel consuming machine around its segment. Few claims regarding the top speed states that it falls between 80-90 kmph. Although, no one ever claimed the time it took to reach such high speed in its years of peak availability. Royal Enfield is currently the longest production motorcycle company and Bullet inspired design seems to be most familiar one of its time. Currently, the brand sells more than 60,000 units each month with Classic 350 as the highest seller.
