Royal Enfield Thunderbird 350 Karma has been designed by Puranam Designs; the unusual paint scheme does little to enhance visual appeal though
Royal Enfield motorcycles are well known for their power and retro charm. Some owners like to customise their machines in an unique way to make the motorcycle distinctive looking. While some are designed tastefully, some don’t come with aesthetic charm but look rather unique. Here we have a 2015 Royal Enfield Thunderbird 350, modified by Puranam Designs and christened as the Karma.
The customised RE Thunderbird 350 appears with a very unusual look, and honestly, it doesn’t come aesthetically very beautiful due to the odd paint scheme. But, with its unique paint scheme and the design, the motorcycle is well capable to grab everyone’s attention. It gets a chocolate brown paint job blended with gold and silver and sports designs on fuel tank depicting the ancient world.

Designed as a retro looking Bobber, the customised Thunderbird 350 comes with a very unusual looking projector headlamp sourced from a SUV, as the modifier claims. The handlebars have been redesigned and come with wide appearance, while the dual-pod instrument cluster has been repositioned and located at the front end of the chunky and well curved fuel tank. Apart from analog dials, it gets a digital display as well.
The wide rider seat gets maroon leather treatment. Apart from the fuel tank and headlamp assembly, entire motorcycle is painted in shiny black and the maroon coloured saddle bags have been attached at both sides. The motorcycle gets new front suspension, while the rear setup too comes reworked. Both the front and rear wheel receive disc brake and the customised motorcycle runs on black multi-spoke alloy wheels wrapped with meaty and wide tyres.

Power source for the Royal Enfield Thunderbird 350 is a 346 cc single-cylinder, air-cooled engine mated to a 5-speed transmission. The stock model is capable of churning out 19.8 bhp of peak power at 5,250 rpm and 28 Nm of peak torque at 4,000 rpm. It is not sure, if the customised model comes with revised power and torque output.
