Royal Enfield motorcycle are quite popular around the world. Royal Enfield motorcycles have a huge fan base for various reasons. These motorcycles are often customised and we have seen several examples of the same. Royal Enfield promotes such modifications and even have a program specially dedicated for modifications or customisations. Royal Enfield got in touch with a South Korean based motorcycle garage and asked them to modify their flagship model Continental GT 650. The name of the garage that Royal Enfield approached was Crazy garage and oh boy, the results are definitely crazy enough to blow your mind.
The video and images have been shared by Bike EXIF on their website. This is probably the most heavily modified Continental GT 650 in the world. The project was assigned to Crazy garage and its founder Kim Chi-hyun was the person behind this modification. Builder Kim is has actually done several modifications in the past and because of his unique style of modification, Royal Enfield noticed him and approached for this project.
Only instruction that Kim Chi-hyun received for this project was to build a custom motorcycle that is unique and looking at the final product, we can say that he absolutely nailed it. As this is supposed to be a track spec motorcycle, several modification have been made. Many elements on the bike have been removed to reduce the weight and improve the performance. Starting with the front, the headlight has been removed and a shield has been placed in that place. A small light is also integrated inside the shield.
Right under the shield is the repositioned oil cooler that is plumbed with race-spec lines. The stock suspension at the front has been replaced with Ohlins USD forks. The bike has been completely transformed and does look like a track motorcycle. Several changes have been made to the engine of the motorcycle. It now gets high compression pistons, a hot cam, heavy duty clutch and Dynojet power commander with autotune to control fuel. It also gets a free flow exhaust and the air box has also been removed.
As mentioned above, this is a race-spec custom motorcycle and Crazy garage has installed Dynojet quickshifter, quick-action throttle and a switch on the handle bar that changes the mapping of the motorcycle quickly. ABS and other electrical equipments on this motorcycle have been removed. The stock brakes are replaced with a complete Brembo system at the front. It gets two discs at the front and one at the rear. A custom made carbon duct is also installed on the brakes to keep it cool.
The rear gets a TTX shock and that is attached to a single-sided swing arm that has been borrowed from a Honda VFR400R. The stock rims were removed and were replaced with lightweight 17-inch Marchesini rims. This new light weight rims were wrapped with ultra-sticky Metzeler Racetec RR tyres. The company fitted instrument cluster was of no use in this custom motorcycle. so they replaced it with a STACK racing tacho and a Yoshimura digital temperature meter.
The fuel tank on this motorcycle is now placed under the seat and the one visible on the outside is just a dummy unit made from thin metal sheets and it matches the FRP tail section with LED tail lights that sits on the modified rear frame. The bike gets red and grey paint job and the engine area has all been painted in black. The bike looks aggressive and ready to hit the track.
