The bike is named as LockStock and the design is completely different to anything we have seen from Royal Enfield yet
Royal Enfield officially revealed Interceptor 650 and Continental GT 650 at the EICMA 2017. The main attractions of both these bikes were the new 650 cc engine developed from scratch by Royal Enfield. Even though sales is yet to begin of these bikes in global markets, the company has revealed a custom made motorcycle based on the new 650 cc engine.
The bike is named as LockStock and the design is completely different to anything we have seen from Royal Enfield yet. The company is yet to reveal details about the new bike as the official reveal will happen at the Bike Shed Motorcycle Club in London. This will be a one off custom bike to showcase the capabilities of RE and its new engine.
The only details Royal Enfield revealed is that the LockStock is a performance powerhouse made to take on the drag strip, burn some serious rubber and create a lot of noise. The base bike for the customization is Continental GT and they have made lots of changes to bike which includes chassis and they have extended the wheelbase.
The front get projector headlamp with a small covering to make the air flow smooth. Royal Enfield has given upside down forks with very less travel. The alloy wheel design is similar to that of Apache RR 310. Royal Enfield has given drop down handle bar as it will help the rider to stay close to the tank to improve aerodynamic flow over the rider head.

The fuel tank is taken on Continental GT 650 but it goes will with the overall design theme of the LockStock. The company has given a single piece seat which is longer than regular seats. The rear of the LockStock doesn’t get any body panels or lights. Royal Enfield has engine protectors which will channel the air to different parts of the body.
The front and rear alloy wheels are wider to give more grip for the bike. The power figures will reveal the true potential of this beast later this week. We can expect the LockStock to do somewhere around 300 kph on the speedometer which is very sufficient for a RE. We can hope that Royal Enfield might a limited edition bike like this for enthusiasts.
