The inspiration for D-71 Fiddler comes from a special species of crab called Fiddler Crab which is known for their asymmetrical pincers
Bulleteer Customs is known for their excellent customizing skills and they are focused only on Royal Enfield bikes. Usually customers contact them for modification jobs but this time Royal Enfield is the customer as they want to make a custom motorcycle based on Himalayan. The design was done by Royal Enfield but Bulleteer customs made the project and the result is Royal Enfield Himalayan D-71 Fiddler.
Even if you are a hard core enthusiast, you won’t be able to identify that D-71 Fiddler is based on Himalayan. The inspiration for D-71 Fiddler comes from a special species of crab called Fiddler Crab which is known for their asymmetrical pincers. Bulleteer Customs has made lots of changes which start with an all new LED headlamp console. The front design is like an off-road adventure bike with mud guard placed below the headlamp.
The custom shop has given wider handle bar along with hand guard on the right side for asymmetry as they want it to look like crab’s claws. The fuel tank is a custom unit and the D-71 Fiddler is a single seater. The side body panel design is also different from the standard bike which houses the conical air filter and it comes with white and yellow finish for the wheels with wider tyres.
Bulleteer Customs has given blue finish for the body panels and the stock rear sub-frame has been replaced with a stubby smaller one to continue the adventure theme. Royal Enfield Himalayan D-71 Flidder is powered by 411 cc SOHC engine with air and oil cooling. The standard Himalayan produces 24.5 hp of power at 6,500 rpm and 32 Nm of torque t 4,250 rpm. But this engine could be tuned to produce more power and to increase the sporty appeal the custom sho has red finish for the engine head.
The custom shop has given disc brakes at front and rear which come from Royal Enfield Continental GT 535. The D-71 Fiddler also comes with Leo Vince upswept exhaust with head wrapping along with conical air filter, we can expect sporty exhaust note. Bulleteer Custom hasn’t revealed price of D-71 Fiddler and it is displayed at the Royal Enfield Garage Café in Baga, Goa.
