Close.

"Bikeurious."

Could be pronounced the same way though.

Did you note the emoticon at the end of my statement. My poor attempt at humour

Re: Royal Enfield V-Twin

Royal Enfield was the name under which the Enfield Cycle Company (founded 1893) made motorcycles, bicycles, lawnmowers and stationary engines. The legacy of weapons manufacture is reflected in the logo[disputed discuss], a cannon, and their motto "Made Like A Gun". Their first motorcycle was built in 1901.

In 1955, Enfield Cycle Company partnered with Madras Motors in India in forming Enfield of India, based in Chennai, and started assembling the 350 cc Royal Enfield Bullet motorcycle in Madras. The first machines were assembled from components imported from England. Starting in 1957, Enfield of India acquired the machines necessary to build components in India, and by 1962 all components were made in India

The original Redditch, Worcestershire based company dissolved in 1971, but Enfield of India continued, and bought the rights to use the Royal Enfield name.
