We have not seen much of Royal Enfield being modified. Except for one guy who replaced the KTM Duke 390 engine on the Himalayan. Now here is another addition to this list.
The Royal Enfield Himalayan has been transformed into a mean looking salt racer. This customised Himalayan is built by Inline3 Custom Motorcycles.
The modified Himalayan is built for the largest Royal Enfield dealer in Delhi, the South Delhi Motorcycles. The salt racer Himalayan will be used as a display motorcycle at the dealership.
The original tank and body panels of the motorcycle were stripped and the ride height has been significantly lowered to live up to its salt racer look.
The custom body panels are made of aluminium. The front forks are equipped with custom stainless triple tree with gunmetal studs. The Himalayan salt racer features clip-on handlebars with period grips.
Most of the body panels have been built by aluminium which has resulted in the significant reduction in weight, around 20kg lighter than the stock Royal Enfield Himalayan.
The rear section of the customised salt racer gets dummy shock absorbers, as a case with salt racers which are built for speed and performance on salt flats. The stock tyres have been replaced by Firestone tyres.
Although the engine specs remain the same, but given the weight reduction, the performance of this motorcycle should be better than the stock Himalayan. The stock Himalayan produces 24.5bhp and 32Nm of torque.
