Custom-built Royal Enfield wants to be a Harley Davidson Iron 883

We have been featuring some really attractive custom RE-based modified motorcycles, but this motorcycle is something else altogether. Modified by Kerala-based Royal Touch Bullet Clinic, this painstakingly executed mod job has transformed a 350-cc Royal Enfield motorcycle into something as attractive as a Harley Davidson Iron 883. The modified motorcycle has been named ‘Matilda’.

The modified Royal Enfield gets a custom set of spoke wheels that have been shod with meatier rubber. The front forks have been painted black. The original headlamp has been replaced with a slightly smaller unit that holds multiple LED fixtures. Once astride, you’ll be quick to notice the flatter handlebar and the new, single-pod instrumentation. The original fuel tank has been replaced with a sleeker unit that gets custom ‘Royal Enfield’ and ‘Matilda’ stickers. The original side panels have been retained but get the same ‘Matilda’ stickers as the fuel tank. Another highlight of the side profile is the rather stubby performance exhaust.

The original seat has made way for a slim, single-seat set-up that has leather upholstery. The engine has been painted black. The rear wheel gets a shorter mudguard. The motorcycle also retains its gas-charged shock absorbers. Other highlights of the car include a side-mounted registration plate and a side-mounted tail light. This custom motorcycle gets a dual-tone red-black paint scheme. Like we said, this modified Royal Enfield motorcycle is easily among the most beautiful custom models we’ve seen in recent times. Every custom panel and all the details of this motorcycle work in tandem to give this machine a totally distinct identity. To an untrained eye, there’s nothing that can reveal the true identity of this motorcycle.

Other than carrying a set of visual modifications, the ‘Matilda’ also carries a handful of performance upgrades. Like we said, this motorcycle sports a custom exhaust. There’s also a cold air intake system. Also, both the wheels get a disc brake each. While detailed specifications of this motorcycle aren’t available at the moment, it’s said that powering this modified Royal Enfield is a 346-cc, single-cylinder AVL engine. In its stock state of tune, this motor pumps out a maximum power of 18.2 PS and a peak torque of 27.5 Nm. The motor comes mated to a five-speed transmission.
