Without a doubt, Royal Enfield motorcycles are the ones that get customised the most. Every other Royal Enfield motorcycle on the roads are customised and modified. While there are many Royal Enfield motorcycles that do not get extreme transformation jobs, here is one that gets air suspension. The first Royal Enfield with air suspension in India.
The modification job is done by SnS Custom Wheels and the video of the motorcycle uploaded by BikeWithGirl. The video shows the modified Royal Enfield Continental GT535, which has now been discontinued by Royal Enfield and is replaced with the new GT650.
To reach the final product, the customisation garage sawed the motorcycle from the rear subframe. It also adds a chopper-inspired design to the motorcycle. All the other panels used in the motorcycle are not the same as the stock GT535. The customisation garage wanted to give a razor-sharp design theme to the motorcycle instead of the curvy lines.

Since none of the original panels fit the final design, new customised panels were made. It does become quite difficult to understand the base model of the motorcycle. It looks very different from the original model of the bike.
The highlight of this motorcycle is the air suspension system. The bike gets air suspension from Legend. It can increase the height or reduce it just by pressing a button. At the front, it gets upside-down forks while the rear gets a fancy looking single-sided swingarm that does look extremely good and reveals the whole design of the alloy wheels.
Due to the sharp design of the motorcycle, the custom garage has named it the Pentagon. The motorcycle also gets inverted side panels that are clearly visible in the pictures. The bike also gets blacked-out alloy wheels and the tyres are much wider than the stock.
Is this road legal?
No, such structural changes are not legal in India. The supreme court of India and the Motor Vehicle Act bans any such modifications to operate on public roads. Such vehicles can be project vehicles be it motorcycles or cars be used in private properties like a farmhouse or racing track. However, the police may seize it from the public roads.
In India modification is not allowed and even aftermarket accessories like the bullbar and other structural changes are banned too. In fact, tyres that are too big for a vehicle are banned too. Such vehicles sure do attract a lot of attention on the roads but since they are made at local garages without proper welding equipment, they can be dangerous. If a vehicle disintegrates while going on a road, it can become a cause of a big accident.
