Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 and Continental GT 650 are two motorcycles that provide vast customisation options. They have a very simple construction and design which makes customising them even easier and fun. So it all comes down to your imagination and flavour/taste which you have to use to develop your own custom bike.
I recently came across a heavily customised Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 by K-Speed, Thailand. These guys have changed the bike’s overall stand and character. Various custom parts have gone in to make it what it is. Check it out.
The Stock headlight has been replaced by an aftermarket LED unit. The handlebar looks sturdier and wider than the stock. Of course, I can’t miss out on those chunky knobbier tyres. To accommodate them, custom fenders have been used as well.
I really like the minuscule handlebar switches. They are so neatly done and take very less space. Bravo! K-Speed has relocated the instrument cluster from its original position to the left side of the bike. It does look cool but serves no purpose. I would have liked to see a smaller single-pod metre console in the centre of the handlebar.
Although the fuel tank is the same, some customisation has been done on it. I also like the blacked-out clutch case and crankcase cover. They look super cool and mean. What else? The subframe has been cut off to reduce the overall length. Custom tail light and rear side turn signals have been installed for a more retro, classical, and cafe racer look.
The seat has also been customised. Even the side panels are changed too. And yes, the dual-barrel single-side scrambler-like exhaust is one of the most attractive features of this customised Interceptor 650. K-Speed left the engine untouched. It is the same 650cc, parallel-twin, air/oil-cooled engine with 47bhp and 52Nm.
K-Speed’s Interceptor 650 definitely looks rad. If you own any of the two RE 650 Twins and have done any kind of modifications, do share the pictures.
