Royal Enfield Unveils Two Insane Factory Custom Bikes

Written By:

Royal Enfield has unveiled two factory built custom motorcycles at the Wheels and Waves Festival in the town of Biarritz, France.

The two custom bikes christened Dirty Duck and Mo' Powa' have been created with the help of the nutjobs at the Royal Enfield owned Harris Customs in the UK.

Royal Enfield Dirty Duck

The Dirty Duck is how Royal Enfield envisions an off-road bike should look like and is based on the Royal Enfield Continental GT.

Royal Enfield has given the Dirty Duck quite a few tweaks to help it deal with the off-road stuff.

The biggest change is the addition of the snorkel which has been designed by Harris Customs. In addition to this, the air box has modified to allow the passage of the straight-through exhaust.

The stock tyres have been replaced with big, blocky Continental TKC80 tyres which sit on the original spoke wheels of the Continental GT.

An aluminum sump-guard has been added to protect the motor and frame from any damage and increase the overall durability.

Up front, the the headlamp and instrument cluster have redesigned. They now house two stacked projector lamps, the number plate and a small, digital meter. Also new is a GoPro camera to record all the fun you will have on the motorcycle.

The fuel tank of the Dirty Duck has been naturally rusted to tell a tale of its long life of surviving adventures. The custom seat is made from oiled leather and will look better as it ages.

Royal Enfield Mo' Powa'

The Mo' Powa' is Royal Enfield's interpretation of a Dragster-meets-Mad Max motorcycle.

To create the bike Royal Enfield took the Classic 500, stretched its wheelbase and lowered the stance using a stretched Continental GT swing arm and lowered forks with a stiffer spring.

The standard handlebars of the Classic 500 have been flattened to give a more committed drag-race ready stance to the motorcycle. Also new are the K-Tech rear shocks that are mounted outboard as the originals, but longer with lower mounts that dropped below the swingarm.

The biggest change with the engine is the inclusion of a turbocharger for a bit of Mad Max Insanity.Royal Enfield have taken out the Fuel Injection system and replaced them with a carburettor and the air box has been replaced.

The exhaust has been fabricated by hand by Harris Performance and features a bent pipe made from many small sections of tubing, something usually seen on a Moto GP bike.

The front wheel of the bike is the stock one found on the Classic 500 but the rear wheel has been replaced a much larger rim from Excel. Both tyres are Continental TKC70 dual sport units.

Other changes include the fuel gauge giving way to a boost gauge, replaced the traditional key with an impressive, military-styled switch and added a Air-Fuel meter for some craziness in the instrument cluster.

The seat is a modified stock steel base that has been re-shaped and covered in deer skin with racing foam accents.
