10 BEST modified Royal Enfield motorcycles: 2018 edition

Royal Enfield motorcycles are known for their charm and aura. They have a huge fan following not only in India but in all over the world. Royal Enfields are also among the most customised bikes in the world. We bring you ten such Royal Enfield motorcycles that have been modified beautifully.

Retro customs

This modified Royal Enfield EFI 500 looks radically different from the stock version. The bike gets a new customised tank, which is quite angular in shape. It gets ripped of its bodywork and every panel that you see is customised. It even gets a new single-seat. There are new fatter tyres that caused the front mudguard to vanish and rear fender to be customised.

Wood finish

Here is another modified example based on the Royal Enfield Thunderbird done by Bull City Customs. The bike gets a unique wooden finish on the metallic parts of the body. It gets the stock tank but the battery box has been taken out to expose the chassis. It also gets a customised exhaust that has been wrapped. With shorter fenders and a straight handlebar, it looks quite attractive.

The Interceptor

Royal Enfield will launch its first parallel-twin cylinder powered motorcycle, the Interceptor in India this year. They have already showcased how the motorcycle will look like. This customised version is for the people who cannot wait for the bike to come. Done by Mean Green customs, it looks very similar to the Royal Enfield Interceptor.

To start with, it gets a new custom tank, handmade quilted brown leather saddle with matching side bags, spoke wheels, much fatter tyres, and a new handlebar that gives you an upright riding position. It also gets customised exhaust downtube, new subframe and a performance air filter. It is powered by a 346cc engine that generates 19.8 Bhp and 28 Nm.


Delhi based Nino Custom Cycles has built this spectacular motorcycle. The model is based on the Royal Enfield Machismo LB500. The bike looks like an amalgam between a dragster and a board track racer. The Troy has a drop down straight bar, springer front forks, a massive rear tyre, delectable spoked rims, a peanut inspired fuel tank and a single seat. The motor gets air through a K&N pod filter. The exhaust system has been upgraded to a straight pipe that makes it extremely loud.


The custom model made by Hollis Motorcycle is one of its kind. The cafe racer motorcycle has a unique design with the elongated fuel tank and a short, single seat attached at the end. The brake light is a small, single stop lamp to alert the followers. The busy design of the motorcycle gives it a unique look. The spoke wheels have disc brakes while the front forks are Springer based. The motorcycle looks majestic in its own way.


The Steroid is a customised Classic 500 that has been converted into a Cafe Racer. The engine of this bike gets power mods that have been kept secret but the modder reveals that it reaches a top speed of 154 km/h. The bike gets a floating seat and a short custom exhaust. The headlamps now get LEDs. The bike also gets Metzeler tyres in the front and rear for the added stability. The front has been borrowed from an RC390 and the front wheel also gets ByBre disc brakes.

Federal Moto

The Chicago based motorcycle customisation shop has built some beautiful option based on various bikes. This is one based on the Royal Enfield Continental GT, which has been discontinued now. The bike gets the original frame and the swingarm, apart from that everything has been fabricated. The bike gets a new fabricated frame that holds the rear monoshock that has been painted in yellow.

The sub-frame is also new and gets a new leather seat. The modern techs include an LED tail lamp integrated to the rear of the seat. The engine is now finished in satin black, with hand-brushed aluminium covers. The fuel injection system has been replaced with a performance carburettor performance kit. The bike gets lowered clip-on, a new single speedo and tachometer from KOSO, vintage styled headlamp and LED turn signals.


Here is a bobber based on Royal Enfield Bullet 500. The UCE engine powered low-slung custom job looks fantastic. The bike gets an exemplary stance with bigger front tyre than the rear. Metal parts like the exhaust tip, bar end weights, fuel cap, tail light ring and the crown nuts have been machined finish and look beautifully detailed. It also gets a digital camouflaged paint on the fuel tank to add the taste of the designer to the bike.


A custom work designed by Mean Green motorcycles looks stunning. The motorcycle gets the bare bone design, dual-tone paint job, a wide two-piece handlebar. The motorcycle does not get side panels, adding a character to it. The rear suspension system is placed under the seat, and the swingarm gets a fixed position.


The Blackout is based on Royal Enfield Thunderbird. The custom model gets its name from the all-black theme. It gets a USD fork, new alloy wheels with tubeless tyres, a new fender and LED lamps. Everything on the bike has been painted black and the stock seat has been replaced with the custom saddle seat.

Even though you can see two exhausts coming out of the bike, one of them is a dummy, just for the aesthetic looks. The rear wheel is mounted on a customised swingarm that has been extended to accommodate the fatter tyre.
