The Royal Enfield 650 Twins are the most modern motorcycles from the company till date. Not only are they popular in India but they are getting a great deal of recognition internationally too. The bikes are getting quite popular in the mod circuits too and a few spectacular examples have already popped up on the scene. Joining the ranks is ‘The Prime Project’ by Zeus Customs. Based on the Royal Enfield Interceptor 650, it is one of its kind hand made beauty that is approved by Royal Enfield itself. It was recently showcased at the Bangkok Motor Show 2019, where it proved to be quite a crowd puller.
As beautiful as it may be, the whole bike was prepared in just 45 days after the sketch was approved by Royal Enfield. This in itself is an applause-worthy feat given the amount of work done on the bike. Though we have said this a few times earlier too, but this modified Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 definitely is the most gorgeous mod examples we have set our eyes upon. It carries the classic old-school bike look mixed with art to which creates the stunning example it is.
The engine on the bike has not been tinkered with and is stock for the most part. However, almost everything else has been replaced or improved. The tank unit has been re-shaped and the lower part of it runs smoothly towards the rear end, which looks very good. Golden colour lines are used on the tank to up the aesthetic value of the bike. The stock handlebars have been replaced with a set of clip-on while the headlight is also a new unit. On the rear, the tail light is a small LED unit that looks quite good. The instrument cluster is another piece of art and is designed like a compass. Other changes made on the bike include a beautiful custom exhaust system with twin tailpipes that is one of the highlights of this modified Interceptor 650
As already said, there are no engine mods on the bike but power output has gown up slightly. This is due to the performance air filter as well as free flow exhaust that are now fitted on the bike. The bike now runs on matte black spoke wheels shod with high-profile tyres. The footpegs have been shifted towards the rear which leads to a more sporty riding style. The 648 cc, air/oil-cooled parallel-twin engine on the Interceptor 650 churns out 47 Bhp of power along with 52 Nm of torque. Transmission duties are taken care of by a 6-speed unit while the company also offers a slipper clutch with the bike. The Prime Project has been aptly named so and indeed is a prime example of how motorcycles should be modified when trying a retro theme.
