Royal Enfield motorcycles are some of the mot popular motorcycle brand in the world. They are known for making retro looking modern motorcycles. Royal Enfield motorcycles serve as perfect donor motorcycles and we have seen several modified examples of the same as well. Many of them have been featured on our website as well. Eimor Customs is a popular name in Royal Enfield modifying circles and some of their previous creations have been featured on our website in the past. Here we have images of ‘Nikko’ which is Eimor Customs latest creation based on Royal Enfield Thunderbird 500.
Eimor Customs is one of the popular customisation houses in the country. They are a Hyderabad-based bike custom house who specialise in modifying Royal Enfields. The Nikko is actually based on a Roya Enfield Thunderbird 500 which is not available in the market anymore. They mention it in their post that Nikko is actually inspired from two of their previous works. One of them is ‘Insignia’ and the other is ‘Forty Three’. The Thunderbird 500 cruiser motorcycle has been changed into a bobber racer motorcycle.
Several changes have been made to the motorcycle. Starting with the front, the steel rims are all blacked out and it now comes with big block button tyres. The fenders on this motorcycle are custom made units both at the front and rear. Moving up, the stock headlamp on this motorcycle has been replaced for an aftermarket LED unit. This is smaller than the stock unit in terms of size.
Above headlamp is where the instrument cluster in placed. This is different from the regular instrument cluster. It is an analog meter that has ammeter, fuel meter and speedometer in it. The handle bar on this motorcycle has been customised. instead of the stock unit, it now gets clubman handlebar with bar-end lights in it. Coming to the fuel tank, it retains the tear drop design with RE logo on it. The whole motorcycle gets a matte brown or rust brown and black shade which goes well with the overall look of the motorcycle.
The engine area has now been finished in matte black and so is the side panel. The bike has a custom made tan coloured single seat which gives it a classic look. The stock exhaust has also been modified. It now comes with an aftermarket silencer. There are springs installed under the seat and the rear also gets dual shock absorbers at the rear. The rear turn indicators are placed on the rear shock absorbers and the tail light has been placed on the left hand side of the motorcycle with the registration plate.
The chain cover has been completely removed and the rear tyre is all exposed. Overall, the modification done on this motorcycle looks very neat and it is definitely a mix of both old school and modern design. As mentioned above, this creation from Eimor is known as Nikko and the meaning of that word is ‘Sunlight’ of the summer. It is not known whether any performance upgrades have been made to this motorcycle or not.
