Well, there are modified Royal Enfield Thunderbird motorcycles, and then there is this – Dariasarang – The Supremo! Basically a modified Royal Enfield Thunderbird 350 by Maratha Motorcycles, this custom bike looks as daunting as, say, an Indian Chieftain. The customisers of this motorcycle say they took inspiration from the Rolls Royce Nautical Wraith. Here, in this post, we have some images and details along with a video that shows the stunning motorcycle in action.
We have seen some really good looking custom bikes from Maratha Motorcycles but this time around, they have upped the ante for every motorcycle customiser in business. The front-end of the motorcycle carries a really large fairing that plays a huge role in giving this motorcycle an altogether different identity. The large fairing is highly reminiscent of the one on the Indian Chieftain and Harley Davidson Street Glide. There’s also a custom headlamp that carries LED fixtures. Furthermore, there’s a custom fender and a set of multi-spoke alloy wheels. The original telescopic forks have been replaced with beefier units that have a two-tone finish.
Things are as interesting in the side profile. There’s a new custom fuel tank that has a ship’s wheel-like fuel tank cap. Also, like the entire motorcycle, the fuel tank gets an Aqua Blue-Ivory Grey paint scheme. There’s also some golden pinstriping inspired from luxury yachts. The original seat has been replaced with a new one that looks lower-set for the rider. You also get side-mounted storage boxes and a large engine cowl to complete that cruiser bike look.
The rear of the motorcycle gets a large rear fender and a triangular custom backrest for the pillion. The original registration plate is gone and has been replaced with a smaller plate bolted on to the rear fender. Thanks to the storage boxes, this RE looks really very wide when viewed from behind.
Once astride, you’ll be quick to notice the custom handlebar and the repositioned footpegs, which, combined with the new seat, enable the rider to enjoy a very relaxed riding posture. You’ll also be quick to notice the Pioneer HU; yes, this motorcycle has an audio system with four 250W speakers, two tweeters and a 500W amplifier. Other than this, there’s also a set of custom chrome-plated rear view mirrors.
