Royal Enfield models are some of the most iconic motorcycles around. REs offer a lot of retro charm and their signature thumping exhaust note. While most RE owners find their motorcycles to be completely flawless, there are some who customize their motorcycles to suit their tastes. Some even give their Royal Enfield motorcycles a Harley Davidson-like look. Here’s a Royal Enfield Classic 350 that has been modified to look like a Harley Davidson Fat Boy.
This Royal Enfield has been modified by Chennai-based 16 Moto Performance. This Classic 350 looks nothing like the regular version and instead, has been made to look a lot like the Harley Davidson Fat Boy. The fit-and-finish of this motorcycle is top-notch and most road users will be hard pressed to notice the real identity of this motorcycle.
One of the biggest highlights of the front-end is the new headlamp, which gets several LED fixtures. You also get a set of custom fog lamps and the same indicators as the real Fat Boy. While the original front fender has been replaced with a bigger unit, the spoke rims have made way for black alloy wheels with a chrome lip. The motorcycle also gets a wider handle-bar. The stock fuel tank has been replaced with a custom unit that has been hand-made by the customizer. This tank looks a lot like the one on the Fat Boy.
Even the design of the new side panels is a lot like that of the ones on the real Fat Boy. The seat is also new and comes with a back-rest finished in the same texture as the seat. The rear fender also looks a lot like the one on the Fat Boy. The tail-lamp and the indicators also have more than a passing resemblance with the American cruiser. The footpegs come from the Thunderbird 350. The motorcycle also gets a faux radiator to complete the Fat Boy look. It doesn’t look like the motorcycle has received any sort of performance upgrades. The stock RE Classic 350 is powered by a 346-cc, single-cylinder engine that produces 19.8 bhp of power at 5,250 rpm and 28 Nm of torque at 4,000 rpm. This engine comes mated to a 5-speed gearbox. The cost of this motorcycle is Rs 3 lakh (including the donor motorcycle).
