Royal Enfield motorcycles are one of the oldest motorcycle brand in the world still in production. The brand is actually quite popular among motorcyclists around the world. The Chennai-based two wheeler manufacturer now has several models in their portfolio and currently the 650 twins – Interceptor 650 and Continental GT 650 are the flagship model. Royal Enfield is also working on several new models and also working on updating existing models. One thing Royal Enfield motorcycles are widely used all around the world are modifications. The manufacturer even has a project to promote customisations. Here we have a concept image of bobber motorcycle which is actually based on a Royal Enfield Continental GT 650.
The images of this concept motorcycle has been designed by Renovatio Motorworks, which is an Indian start up for bike customisation. They have named this concept ‘Old Lady’ as it has a retro styling. Looking at the image, it is clear that several modifications need to be done to the stock motorcycle to shape it like a bobber. Renovatio Motorworks can actually build this motorcycle for you. All you need is an RE Continental GT 650 and a good amount of money and time.
Almost every panel on this motorcycle will be changed. It looks like even the frame has been customised slightly for this purpose. Starting with the front, the concept gets a girder fork with single shock absorber in the center. The headlight is positioned just above the front fender. The stock wheels will be removed and replaced with wide spoke wheels with chunky tyres wrapped around it. The rims have been painted in golden shade. It looks like the disc plates at the front and rear have also been modified.
The instrument cluster is not seen in the concept and the handle bar seen here is wide unit as well. LED turn indicators are placed at the end of the handle bar along with bar-end mirrors. The Fuel tank looks like a custom made unit in tear drop shape. As this is designed to look like a bobber, the seats have been repositioned. It now offers a very low seating position with suspended single seat. The rear suspensions have been repositioned too. The rear fender is a custom made unit that exposes the fat tyre at the rear. The rear wheel also gets the golden paint treatment. The brake and clutch lever on this motorcycle also gets the golden shade.
Coming to the engine area, the all chrome engine covers now get matte black powder coating. The stock side panels are replaced with custom made units with ‘Old Lady’ branding on it. The original exhaust on this Continental GT 650 has been removed and are replaced with a chrome finished custom made unit. This is just a concept that Renovatio Motorworks has designed and when they start working on an original bike some changes and expected to happen.
It is not known whether any modification will be done to the engine of this motorcycle. Royal Enfield Continental GT is a motorcycle with decent power figures. it is powered by a 648-cc, twin cylinder, oil cooled, fuel injected engine that generates 47 Bhp and 52 Nm of peak torque.
