Royal Enfield launched the all-new Continental GT650 and Interceptor last year and both the motorcycles have become quite popular in the market. Since Royal Enfield motorcycles are one of the most preferred brands by the custom garages in India, there are already quite a few modified examples based on the Royal Enfield Interceptor and the Continental GT650 in India and around the world. Here is a specially made Royal Enfield Maranello by Bulleteer Customs. It is based on the Royal Enfield Continental GT650 and gets the name Maranello!

There is even a video of the motorcycle being revved hard. It makes all kinds of popping noises, giving it a unique identity. The Royal Enfield Continental GT650 modified by the custom garage gets a new custom set of 17-inch wheels that are spoked rims but look extremely good on the bike. The stock tyres on the bike have been replaced with 160mm cross section tyre at the rear and 120mm cross section tyre. The bike gets Timsum semi-slick tyres that make riding the bike very exciting even on the public roads. The semi-slicks provide a much better grip on the roads compared to the regular tyres, which sure takes the experience to the next level altogether.
Bulleteer Customs has also added a custom SC project exhaust with DB killers that changes the bike exhaust sound. It is much much louder than the stock exhaust but with DB Killer in place, the noise level stays within the legal limits. The bike also gets custom Upside Down front suspension. The stock seat gets replaced with a cafe racer styled tan seat that gets diamond stitching on it.
The level of work done on Maranello is quite precise. The monograms on the bike are laser embossed and the engine gets a brushed aluminium finish that makes it look much more classy. The stock handlebar of the bike gets replaced with an aftermarket bar, which makes the riding position much more aggressive and gives a true Cafe Racer touch to the bike. At the rear, the bike gets twin Piston tail lamp. Since it has been named Maranello, a racy red custom paint job with stripes white and gold.
Royal Enfield Continental GT 650 and Interceptor have received a good response from around the world. In India, both bikes come with an extended waiting period. It is the value-of-money factor that makes both the bikes very special and very popular too. Both Interceptor and the Continental GT650 are powered by the 649cc, parallel-twin, air-cooled plus oil-cooled engine that produces a maximum power of 47 Bhp and peak torque of 52 Nm. It gets a 6-speed transmission with a slipper clutch as standard.
