MIG-21 inspired RE Interceptor 650 motorcycle revealed by Bulleteer Customs

Royal Enfield is world’s oldest motorcycle brand still in production. This Chennai based two wheeler manufacturer has a huge following in India and around the world. Royal Enfield is popular among buyers for its retro looks and signature thump. Over the years, the thump from the engine has reduced to make it compliant with the new emission norms but, they have retained their styling. Royal Enfield motorcycles are also act as a great donor bike for several modification projects and we have seen several examples of the same. Many of them are from Bulleteer Customs, which is bike customisation workshop in Bengalure. They have now modified an Interceptor 650 motorcycle which is actually inspired from a MIG-21 Fighter jet.

This modified Interceptor 650 is actually known as Fearless 650. Bulleteer Customs completely changed the look and feel of the bike. It looks nothing like a regular Interceptor 650 motorcycle. Starting with the front, it gets a fighter jet turbine inspired design for the cowl. The stock headlamp has been replaced with all-LED aftermarket units. The bike gets a dual tone paint job. Left side of the bike gets a green shade whereas the right side gets a silver finish. IND badge in white colour can be seen on the left side of the tank.

The cowl at the left side gets rivets (airbrushed) like design on it. This is done to give it a fighter jet look and feel. The fuel tank is also painted in green on one side and silver on the other. The cowl gets black colour on the right side with multiple strips on it. The windshield gets a smokey effect which looks good on the motorcycle. The front forks get gaiters and the stock spoke wheels have been replaced with blacked out multi spoke alloy wheels. Fearless 650 name can be seen on the tyres too. The handlebars have also been replaced on this  motorcycle.

Left side of the Fearless 650 gets a side panel with MIG fighter get brandin on it. As we are looking at the side profile, one of the thing that you notice is the blacked out engine area. The Akropovic exhausts are silver finished to give it a contrasting look. Even the Exhaust on the right side gets a black finish to go with the overall theme. The side panel on the right side gets black paint job with number 13 sticker on it. The seats have been redone and it is now a single seater motorcycle with diamond stich seats. Tail section of RE Fearless 650 gets a cover that slopes down towards the end and gets an aftermarket tail lamp.

The tail section of this motorcycle is also painted in dual tone. Interceptor 650 is one of the two twin cylinder motorcycles that RE has in Indian market. It is one of the most refined motorcycle that Royal Enfield has manufactured till date. It is powered by a 648-cc, parallel twin cylinder engine that generates a maximum of 47 Bhp and 52 Nm of torque. RE will soon be introducing a Tripper meter in many of their models. The manufacturer is also working on a 650-cc, cruiser motorcycle which was spotted testing some time ago.
