Royal Enfield motorcycles are some of the most modification friendly motorcycles in the country. Royal Enfield motorcycles are quite popular among motorcyclists around the world for their retro looks. They have a variety of motorcycles in their line up. RE Classic and Bullet series motorcycles are most commonly picked up for such modifications but lately, we have started seeing this trend in other Royal Enfield motorcycles as well. RE Interceptor 650 and Continental GT 650 are the flagship models from the manufacturer. It is currently the most affordable twin cylinder one can buy in the country. It is available in international markets as well. Here we have an Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 from Hardcore Customs, Cordoba, Argentina that has been neatly modified into a bobber.
The images of this Interceptor 650 has been shared in a Facebook group. Several changes have been made to the motorcycle to achieve this Bobber look. Bobber is actually a type of custom build motorcycle where excess body work and panels on the motorcycles are removed. This style of motorcycle was originally called bob-job as they remove panels from stock motorcycle.
Starting with the front, the rims on the motorcycle have been blacked out and the spoke retains the metal finish. The front forks on the motorcycle have also been painted in black. The stock headlamp has been removed and replace with a smaller aftermarket halogen unit. The original instrument cluster has been retained and the handle bar has been customised too and it gets bar end rear view mirrors on it.
The whole bike gets a matte Lava Orange or Orange Ember finish with generous use of black paint at places. The Fuel tank on the this bobber is the same as Interceptor 650 but, it now gets a blacked out fuel filler cap and Royal Enfield badging on it. The frame of this Interceptor has been customised to give it a Bobber like styling. The rear subframe has been removed for this purpose.
The seat is now placed lower than the stock version. It is a saddle seat with an LED tail light placed right behind it. It looks like the swingarm on this motorcycle have also been customised. In stock form Interceptor gets twin absorbers at the rear. That has been replaced with a mono-shock unit. The side panels, front and rear fender and fuel tanks are painted in matte Orange Ember shade whereas rest of the parts get black treatment.
Coming down, the engine area which is generally chrome finished in Interceptor has been powder coat in black paint. Even the stock exhasut have been replaced with aftermarket units. Coming to the tyres, the front looks stock but, the rear one looks a lot more chunkier than the stock version. Tyres used on this motorcycle also looks good and suits the overall character of the motorcycle.
In terms of engine, the Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 is a motorcycle with decent amount of power. It is powered by a 648-cc, twin cylinder engine that generates 47 Bhp and 52 Nm of peak torque. It is not known whether any changes have been made to the engine of this bobber. Overall, the work done on this RE Interceptor looks pretty neat.
