Royal Enfield unveils four new custom motorcycles
Royal Enfield enjoys a huge fan-following today, which can largely be attributed to two of its most successful models — the Standard 350 and Classic 350. The reason for their success is because the platform of these two motorcycles allow endless possibilities for customers who want to showcase their own identity via customization jobs and modifications. As part of the bikemaker’s Custom World programme, it has unveiled four custom motorcycles based on the Classic 350.
Starting with the ‘Gaur’, which has been built by the famous Rajputana Custom Motorcycles. Inspired by Royal Enfield motorcycles from various eras, the Gaur is the only motorcycle in this lineup to feature drum brakes on both ends. It also makes use of a girder suspension, and gets a custom fuel tank, a leather seat, unique levers, custom tool boxes and more.
Next in line is the ‘Divine’, built by Neev Motorcycles. A bobber-style motorcycle with a lowered stance, it receives a custom swingarm, tank, mudguards and a hand-stitched leather seat. The Divine also sports 5.00/16 balloon tyres, and makes use of engraved brass elements on certain areas, along with a Matt Black paint scheme with gold pinstriping.
Aptly named ‘Dilli’, this custom motorcycle built by Old Delhi Motorcycles aims to capture the spirit of Old Delhi, and receives a dual-tone white and yellow paint scheme. The ‘Dilli’ also comes with a sidecar finished in bright yellow.
Last, but not the least, Aizawl-based MS Customs unveiled a custom motorcycle which follows the theme of an 'Urban Roadster' and gets a 60s-inspired headlight dome, along with a custom tank, swingarm, spoke wheels, tyres, and a hand-crafted twin seat.
On the launches front, Royal Enfield seems to be gearing up for the launch of the Hunter, and also seems busy developing the new Himalayan platform. The Hunter is expected to be launched later this year, while the new Himalayan could still take some more time. Nevertheless, exciting stuff and exciting times ahead for Royal Enfield!
