Royal Enfield motorcycles are one of the most popular two-wheeler brand in the world. They are known for making retro looking motorcycles like Bullet and Classic 350. They have a variety of products in their line-up and last year they launched a brand new motorcycle Meteor in the market. It is a cruiser motorcycle which has become popular among buyers for its handling and fairly refined engine. Like Classic and Bullet motorcycles, Meteor 350 is also gaining popularity among customisers and here we have one such brilliant looking modified Royal Enfield Meteor from K-Speed.
K-Speed is a Japan-based bike customisation house. They have converted the a standard Royal Enfield Meteor 350 motorcycle into a bobber style motorcycle. Several changes have been made to the motorcycle and it looks brilliant. Starting with the front, the standard dual tone company fitted alloy wheels on this motorcycle have been retained but, it now comes with a chunkier looking tyre wrapped around it.
The front tyre is completely exposed as there is no fender on it. The front forks are the same and the disc brakes are also retained. The forks however get a gaiter and the headlamp on the motorcycle has been removed. The stock round unit has been replaced with a smaller looking aftermarket unit. The new headlight is so small that it neatly sits between the front forks.
The instrument cluster which was one of the highlights on a Meteor 350 has been removed from the original position and is now placed on the left hand side of the tank. The fuel tank on the Meteor continues to get the teardrop design but, it now comes with chrome paint finish on it. Most of the panels on this motorcycle has been taken down in order to achieve the desired look. The handle bar on this motorcycle is another attraction. The stock handle has been replace with a simple looking handle bar finished in chrome.
The engine on this Bobber style motorcycle gets the same old black paint job with machine cuts on the top. The original exhaust has been replaced with a custom made upswept free flow unit. The side panels on the motorcycle are finished in matte black. The original seat on the Meteor 350 has been replaced with a custom made unit with leather upholstery on it. The bike can now seat only one person instead of two.
It looks like K-Speed did not make any changes to the chassis of the motorcycle. The rear sub-frame however has been modified. The turn indicators are now aftermarket units and it is mounted next to the rear suspension. The rear fender is a custom unit and it exposes the tyre from the rear. The chain cover has been completely removed and it is also fully exposed. The foot pegs are not repositioned and offer almost the same riding position as the original motorcycle. It is not known whether any changes have been made to the engine of the motorcycle. It is powered by a 349-cc, single cylinder engine that generates 20.2 Bhp and 27 Nm of peak torque.
