Royal Enfield bikes for lengthy have been expensive for customisation homes all over the world. However, the story bought fascinating when the model forayed into the twin-cylinder class with the 650 twins. The Interceptor 650 garnered nice response in India and rapidly grew to become one of the vital wanted bikes in India.
So, in the identical tone, we want to current an alternate iteration of the motorbike that’s an astonishing results of customisation home, GRID7. Starting from the entrance, the motorbike will get new LED headlights that could be a step away from the inventory halogen ones. The resultant mannequin misses out on an instrument cluster altogether and the handlebar will get bar-end mirrors.
In case you had been questioning, the instrument cluster is now positioned on the left facet of the tank. And the tank will get a gray paint scheme with orange stripes on it. The engine can also be fully blacked out and provides to the imply manner of the bike. As in opposition to the inventory ones, in its new avatar, the motorbike will get a brand new flat seat that goes properly with the general persona of the motorbike. It is put in with an in-house constructed GRID7 efficiency exhaust system which blesses us with a moderately pleasing sound be aware.
At the rear, the bike will get a brand new taillight that sits proper behind the seat. The indicators have been borrowed from one of many Harley Davidson bikes. The tyres get an improve too and now runs on 130/70-18 inch Pirelli on the entrance and 170/60-18 inch Shinko on the rear.
At its coronary heart, the brand new motorbike carries the identical 647-cc, fuel-injected, oil and air-cooled, parallel twin-cylinder engine that outputs a most of 47bhp and 52Nm of torque. Since the bike already got here with fuel-injection the shift to satisfy the upcoming emission norms haven’t affected the ability figures a lot. However, the brand new mannequin does come at a major premium of Rs 9,000 over the outgoing BS-IV model.
