As most of you may be aware, we have been very regular with featuring some really tastefully modified cars and motorcycles. Most of these customized motorcycles are based on Royal Enfield models. One such custom motorcycle is the super cool cruiser you see below. Based on the Royal Enfield, this motorcycle has been named ‘Angara’ and has been crafted by Delhi based customisation house, ModBike.
Almost all of the body panels you see on this motorcycle are new and have mostly been hand-crafted. The motorcycle has been painted in a rather majestic shade of wine red. At the front-end, you get a custom fender. The stock spoke wheels have been replaced with multi-spoke alloy wheels that have been shod with wider rubber. The front wheel measures 19-inches in diameter. Other highlights of the front-end include a conical custom headlamp and chunky chrome-plated upside down front forks. Highlights of the side profile include a peanut-shaped fuel tank, a custom-made, leather-wrapped low-set single-seat setup, and a chrome-plated custom exhaust setup. At the first glance, the new exhaust system might look like a twin-pipe unit. However, the second exhaust pipe is a faux unit that has been offered purely to enhance the aesthetics.
Other highlights include a faux radiator grille and re-positioned foot pegs. Also, the spokes of the alloy wheels have been painted in a shade of bronze while the rim’s circumference gets the same shade of wine red that’s present on the body panels. Once astride, you’ll be quick to notice the really wide handlebar, lack of instrumentation, and the artistic detailing on the fuel tank. Like we said, the motorcycle gets a low-set single-seat arrangement, which, along with the wide handlebar, offer a definite cruiser bike-like riding position.
The rear-end is characterized by a really wide, low-profile tyre and a custom mudguard with the same detailing that’s present on the fuel tank. The rear wheel measures 18-inches in diameter. You also get custom indicator units. The motorcycle is powered by the 499cc, single-cylinder Royal Enfield engine. This motorcycle gets disc brakes on both the wheels. Also, the extended wheelbase, in all probability, would have aided the high-speed stability. The total cost of modification is Rs 3.5 lakh (excluding the cost of the donor T’bird 500).
