Bangalore based bike modification company Bulleteer Customs is among the top places in India to get you Royal Enfield bikes customized. In past, Bulleteer has rolled out quite a few tastefully modified bikes based on Royal Enfield motorcycles ranging from the 650 twins to Bullet and Thunderbird. Their latest build, which they have named as the Octave, is another addition to the long list of custom made RE based bikes that have rolled out of their workshop in past. The Octave, as seen in the images below, is a gorgeous looking motorcycle designed on the lines of a bobber and it looks the part.
The Octave comes from the Brat custom bike series by Bulleteer and has been made on the special demand of a customer. It features a white paint job with black tank grips, a diamond quilted custom brown coloured leather saddle and the engine, as well as the gearbox, have been completely draped in black. The front fender is a chopped unit while the rear fender is a motocross-inspired unit. The bike runs on aftermarket tires shod on to spoked rims adding a touch of class to the whole build.
The front end also features golden USD forks along with an aftermarket headlamp and handlebars. The rear subframe has been modified a bit while the rear tail light now is a single pod unit mounted by the side of the saddle. The front indicators have been built in the handlebars itself while the rear ones are retro-looking units. All in all, the Octave is a hot looking bobber motorcycle.
Royal Enfield is currently working on the new generation models of the Thunderbird and Classic bike series. Both of them have been spied testing quite a few times on Indian roads and are expected to be launched in the country next year. From what is evident from the spy shots till now, the bikes will get a host of upgrades both in terms of aesthetics as well as mechanical components. The engine will be upgraded to meet the upcoming stringent BSVI emission norms and will probably be more powerful too. The gearbox casing and forks also seem to be new and the bikes will employ a double cradle chassis this time around for better agility and handling.
The design of the bikes has also been upgraded and they get new fenders, new headlamps and tail lamps, new saddle along with a slightly different riding triangle. Expect the bikes to be showcased at the upcoming 2020 New Delhi Auto Expo with a launch following a few months later. Now since the bikes will come with a ton of changes and upgrades, expect the pricing to go up too. It is also being said that Royal Enfield may consider building a 650 cc version of the Classic but that is not confirmed as of now.
