Bangalore based custom motorcycle builder, Bulleteer Customs has just unveiled their latest piece of art - a modified Royal Enfield Thunderbird X 500 that has been rechristened Brat.
The modified Thunderbird X 500 features a host of custom built parts and modifications that give the motorcycle a Neo-retro look. The motorcycle does look it plays parts in action flicks.
The modified Royal Enfield features a new, custom built face plate at the front that has twin headlights on them, a large 120mm profile tyre at the front, and aftermarket spoked wheels. Modifications include an up-side down suspension set up at the front.
Limited modifications made to the motorcycle's fuel tank include a new paint scheme that incorporates two racing stripes and three-dimensional cube, and a reworked knee recess that features rubber padding.
The side panels of the modified Royal Enfield Thunderbird X 500 features the new Brat badging that looks cleaner than the original ‘Thunderbird' decals. The seat has been modified, and dressed in leather to give the motorcycle an aggressive, scrambler like appearance.
Rear suspension continues to feature the factory installed inverted gas-charged set up. Bulleteer Customs has also retained the original bend pipe from the original exhaust mechanism, but has replaced the muffler with an up-swept unit. Another add-on to the bend pipes is the brown coloured heat wraps.
The tail end of the motorcycle features a 140mm section tyre along with a tyre-hugger for a rear fender. Other highlights include a single pod instrument cluster.
There appear to be no mechanical changes made to the engine, and the motorcycle continues to feature a 499cc single-cylinder engine that produces 27.2bhp of power and 41.3Nm of torque. The air-cooled engine comes mated to a five-speed gearbox.
The current-generation of Royal Enfield Thunderbird X 500 models are priced at Rs 2.16 lakh onward and will be available only until 31 March this year. The company recently announced a discontinuation of their Bullet, Classic, and Thunderbird 500cc range of motorcycle. To read more, click here.
Thoughts About The Royal Enfield Thunderbird X 500 Modified by Bulleteer Customs
We think the modified motorcycle looks great, and definitely looks like it can play roles at the movies. We're not too sure about the headlight assembly though, and think it could have been finished better. Outside of that, this is truly a piece of art.
