The Classic 350 is the best selling motorcycle for Royal Enfield for quite some time now. The bike touched sales figure of 50,000 plus units per month on numerous occasions in past which goes on to show the popularity of the bike. Though now the sales have gone down compared to previous records, the popularity of the motorcycle remains intact and the Classic 350 is probably the most common Royal Enfield bike on our roads. The reason why we delved into a discussion about the Classic 350 is because of the magnificent bobber styled bike featured here.
Called the Blitzer, this Royal Enfield Classic 350 has been transformed into its new avatar by Bengaluru based Bulleteer Customs. Like the countless Royal Enfield bikes they have modified before, the Blitzer stands proud with a personality of its own. The bike originally was painted in a shade of maroon and since the client was in love with the colour, he asked the Bulleteer guys to retain it in a similar pattern. The result is in front of us all and the bike now sports white and maroon paint all around its body panels.
Talking about the changes made on the bike, it sports 140 mm thick tires at both ends along with chopped fenders to give the bike that typical bobber look. A custom T plate has been positioned at the front while the swingarm has been extended so as to create an old school bobber stance. The headlight has been replaced with an aftermarket LED unit that features a ring DRL while the handlebars are also aftermarket wide units. A digital speedometer provides all the relevant information a rider needs and is placed ahead of the wide handlebars.
The bike gets a good dose of chrome too/ The rims, front and rear suspension setup, gearbox, battery tank, instrument cluster and the silencer pipe have all been plated with copper which gives a classy look to this bobber. The custom tan saddle piece is beautifully placed and gets a textured cover. The handlebars, saddle and footpegs have been positioned in a way that that the riding triangle is comfortable and commanding as well. A performance air filter along with the custom silencer pipe are among the few mechanical changes on the bike. With all the weight-saving that has been done here, we’re sure that the performance of the Blitzer will for sure be better than the regular Classic 350.
Talking about the Classic 350, Royal Enfield is currently working on the next-generation model of the bike. The bike has already been spotted testing multiple times and the engine, chassis, as well as several other body parts of the bike, will be worked upon. The bike is expected to be launched sometime next year.
