Royal Enfield is a very popular two-wheeler manufacturer in the Indian market. This Madras-based Indian bikemaker is acclaimed all over the world for its Classic and Bullet series motorcycles. However, in 2018, the company really surprised everyone by launching the most affordable twin-cylinder motorcycle in India - Interceptor 650. The Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 found a lot of takers and the owners even modified it according to their tastes. So, today we have for you a dope-looking Modified Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 and it has got tons of mods that cost around 85,000 rupees.
First of all, let's have a look at this tastefully-modified RE Interetor 650 and it really looks damn gorgeous! Now, talking about the mod-jobs, at the front it gets a new front fascia from Autologue. This Autologue front panel design cost the owner around Rs. 19,990. It also gets an all-LED headlamp that costs Rs. 4,800 and there are bar-end mirrors too of worth Rs. 1200.
This Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 is a combination of many Royal Enfield motorcycles. It borrows several elements from the Continental GT 650 and some from the Thunderbird 350X. First of all, it gets a new handlebar that has been borrowed from the RE Continental GT 650. The cost of the new handlebar is Rs. 4,000 and it gets handlebar grips too that cost Rs. 1,200.
The turn indicators have been borrowed from the RE Thunderbird 350X and its total cost is Rs. 1,000. Also, the single-piece floating-type seat has been borrowed from the RE Continental GT 650 and its total cost is Rs. 2,400. Then, we have the seat cowl of worth Rs. 3,900. Also, the fairing and the fuel tank of the motorcycle has been wrapped for Rs. 3,100.
The customised motorcycle even gets LED taillight and the chassis has been chalked out for a total cost of Rs. 5,000. The owner has also installed a twin exhaust set-up from Gurusewak that costs Rs. 14,000. The new exhausts are powder-coated and they have been wrapped for Rs. 2,000. It not only looks nice but also sounds more pleasing to ears than the stock ones.
Talking about some other upgrades, it gets heat-resistant paint protection for the engine that cost the owner around Rs. 10,000. It gets a BMC air filter too for Rs. 5,500 and the front sprocket has also been changed. The original sprocket of the stock Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 gets 15-teeth but the owner has installed a new 14-teeth front sprocket for Rs. 3,500. Also, the customised motorcycle is slightly more powerful and torquier than before.
Currently, the stock 2020 Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 is powered by a BS6-compliant 648cc, parallel-twin, air-cooled, fuel-injected engine. This motor churns out 47.65 PS of power at 7250 RPM and 52 Nm of peak torque at 5250 RPM. The engine comes mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox and it gets a slipper clutch too. However, this modified motorcycle makes 5 PS extra and the torque has also increased by 6.7 per cent.
This prized possession belongs to Babar Farooq of Delhi and the motorcycle has been built by Ultakustoms. If you also own any fancy modified car or a motorcycle, feel free to share it with us!
