Royal Enfield recently launched the Bullet Trials series, which is the first scrambler styled bike from the company. However, the bike gets no mechanical change from the regular Bullets. The changes are limited to aesthetics and some other tweaks like upturned silencer and luggage tray at the rear. However, if you are looking for a more serious scrambler alternative, TNT Motorcycles have just the thing for you. Meet the Jatayu 350 Scrambler, which has been scrambled together by using parts from different Royal Enfield bikes. TNT Motorcycles are one of the leading bike modification garages in the country and have created a lot of exciting bike designs and mod versions in past.
Their latest creation, the Jatayu 350 uses an older version of the Royal Enfield engines. To be particular, it uses the CL350 engine which used to be found on the olde Cast Iron bullets. Other bits taken from Royal Enfield bikes include the swingarm which is from the Thunderbird and has been further customised along with the rear suspension setup that is taken from the Continental GT. Let’s now check out what are the other changes made on the bike to turn it into the Jatayu.
Starting from the front, the bike gets a custom LED headlight topped by a custom made visor. The rims have been blacked out while the front fender is a pretty short unit, keeping up with the scrambler theme. A custom instrument console dial is placed in front of the handlebars, painted in a silver colour. The tank used on this bike is a custom made unit with Royal Enfield painted on it. The custom saddle is a leather piece with a criss cross pattern on the top. Apart from the fuel tank, the rear fender and the electric box have also been specifically made for this bike. The tail lights are LED units which have been embedded in the rear frame itself, as is the trend these days.
The Jatayu gets a full custom made rear subframe which gives it the necessary Scrambler stance. The Jatayu comes with disc brakes at both ends which provides the necessary stopping power whenever necessary. The modifiers have also installed a K&N performance air filter which lets the engine breath better. A nice custom exhaust completes the package and balances the flow. The bike has been draped in a combination of black and Red custom paint job with white stripes, which further compliments the overall look of the bike.
Overall, the Jatayu 350 looks pretty good. Since its a scrambler, knobby tires and slightly raised suspension setup would have had further complimented the bike but in its current form too, it looks great. Also, since its the old CL 350 engine, the exhaust note of this bike would be quite enthralling.
