Modified Royal Enfield Classic 500 Bobber conversion by MK Design

This modified Royal Enfield Classic 500 is the neatest Bobber we’ve seen recently

Most of you must be aware of the several modified Royal Enfield motorcycles that we have featured on Cartoq. Thanks to their simple construction and a clean base design, the Royal Enfield models are a favorite of most motorcycle customizers in India. While RE-based Bobbers are fairly common now, the mod you see below is actually among the neatest Royal Enfield Classic-to-Bobber conversion we’ve seen in recent times.

Built by Faridabad-based MK Designs, this motorcycle started life as yet another Classic 500. Its owner, however, chose to get his motorcycle modified into a Bobber. The inspiration for the design came from the Harley Davidson Sportster. The front-end gets a smaller, sleeker fender that has been custom-made for this motorcycle. The headlamp also comes from a Harley Davidson. Helping the motorcycle achieve a typical Bobber stance is the increased wheelbase of 1500 mm, up from 1360 mm of the stock motorcycle. Once stride you’ll be quick to notice the digital speedo-console, which further increases the ‘cool quotient’ of this motorcycle.

Highlights of the side profile include a custom fuel tank, a large single-seat, and multi-spoke alloy wheels shod with 110/90-18 spec MRF rubber at the front and 150/70-15-spec rubber at the rear. The engine has been painted black while the chrome-finish of the crankcase covers has been left untouched. Also, the motorcycle gets a Custom Candy Metal Flake paint job, which helps the motorcycle attract enough attention without looking too loud.

Highlights of the rear include a custom-made fender, a side-mount registration plate, and indicators that also double up as the brake lights. We had a word with Milan Khurana, owner of MK Design, and were told that all the parts of this motorcycle are bolt-on fits and that the original frame and mounts haven’t been tampered with. Moreover, the motorcycle can be restored to its stock form in a matter of three hours.

As for the performance upgrades, the motorcycle gets a K&N performance air filter along with a free flow Megaphone exhaust. Other than this, the engine has been left untouched. Powering the stock Royal Enfield Classic 500 is a 499cc, single-cylinder motor that outputs a maximum power of 27 bhp along with a peak torque of 41 Nm. The motor comes mated to a five-speed manual transmission. The cost of the modification is Rs 1,50,000.
