The Bullet Electra was introduced by Royal Enfield way back in 2001 and had a decent run until it was finally discontinued in 2016. The major difference between the Electra and the Bullet models was of the advanced electrics the former came equipped with, including an electric start later on. As with almost every Royal Enfield bike out there, the Bullet Electra too was fairly popular with modifiers un both the cast iron guise as well as the UCE guise. Why we are talking about the Royal Enfield Electra today is because of the video below by Modified junction which shows a Royal Enfield Bullet Electra that has been modified into a bobber. Take a look at the video and get a better look of the bike before we discuss the changes made on it.
The most important or highlighted element of this bobber themed mod job is that it is done at a cost of around Rs. 55,000 to Rs. 60,000. Compared to how the bike looks, that is quite a decent price to pay as we have seen much expensively modified bikes looking the same. The bike used here is a 2016 model Bullet Electra 350 but according to the video, such modification can be done on any bike with a powerful engine. Let’s now take a look at what all has been done on this bike to give it a bobber look.
The build has been kept minimalist which contributes to the low modification cost of this bike. Most of the bodywork here like the tank, fenders and battery box has been custom fabricated for this bobber build. The rims on both ends of the bike have been blacked out while the fenders have been chopped short too. The handlebar is a new aftermarket piece and is quite a stretched unit, giving the rider the typical bobber feel. The instrument cluster along with the headlight has been replaced by better and more functional aftermarket units.
A custom single piece saddle with tan finish completes the bobber look and so does the side mounted brake light. The silencer, however, has been kept stock, though it has been painted black. Called the Meteor, it gets a blue and white paint job across its body while the engine and gearbox have been draped in black. All in all, the bike feels quite a value for money product at the low price tag which is being asked for it. Talking about the Bullet Electra 350 UCE, it was powered by a 346cc, unit construction, four-stroke petrol engine that churned out 19.8 Bhp of peak power and 28 Nm of peak torque. The engine is paired with a 5-speed manual gearbox and gets a carburettor for fueling.
