Mumbai-based Haldankar Customs has come up with a modified Royal Enfield Bullet 350cc Scrambler that has been named as the ‘Encode’
We have always felt that the Royal Enfield motorcycles provide a good base to the bike customizers. The modified Royal Enfield Bullet 350cc you see here further cements our belief. Customized by the Mumbai-based Haldankar Customs, this motorcycle has been rechristened the Encode.
The stock fuel tank has been given a dual-tone red-black paint combo along with golden Royal Enfield branding. The fuel tank also gets a luggage carrier, which imparts a slightly vintage look to the motorcycle.
Even other panels have received the red-black dual-tone treatment. The seat is new and gets a black leather cover. The toolbox and the engine has been given an all-black paint scheme. Even the spokes are black and the disc brakes have been given red highlights. The front half of the tailpipe has been given an insulation wrap for the perfect retro look. The rest of the silencer has an all-black paint scheme.
The front gets a new round headlamp without the usual housing. It is protected by a unique grille. The forks get a rubber cover. The original tires have been replaced with wider rubber. The twin rear shock absorbers have a chrome finish.
Both the fenders are custom-made and sport the same dual-tone red-black finish. The handlebar has been given a black paint job. It gets bar-end indicators, which lend a premium feel to the motorcycle. The modified Royal Enfield Bullet 350 cc scrambler Encode gets a single-pod instrument console. Rounding off the changes is custom taillight and a red-black dual tone paint for the rear drum brake.
The motorcycle doesn’t carry any performance modifications. It is powered by the regular 346cc, single-cylinder, carburetted engine that outputs a maximum power of 20 bhp and a peak torque of 28 Nm. It comes mated to a five-speed transmission. We feel that this modified Royal Enfield Bullet 350 offers a right mix of a retro design and the racy looks of a scrambler.
