KR Customs based in Chennai decided to make Royal Enfield Classic 500 look like a bobber as their latest project.
KR Customs modification is popular in domestic and international markets also. The final product looks really good and finish is top level like original bobber bikes. The custom shop has given small headlamp at front without any housing around it to continue the minimalistic look. The front gets telescopic suspension and finished in black colour.
The front fender is small and the stock handle bar has been replaced by a single piece unit. They have also given a single pod instrument cluster with speedometer, odometer and other important signals integrated into it. The custom shop has given a unique design for switches and at first sight people won’t understand that it is switches.
The bobber comes with a new fuel tank, which is custom made for the bike and it is centre of attention. KR Customs has given single seat to continue the bobber series design theme. The stock twin suspension at rear has been replaced by a mono suspension. The custom shop has made some changes for swing arm to extend the wheelbase.
The rear fender is also smaller like the front and they have given a small circular tail lamp. Most of the custom bikes don’t come with number plate at rear, but bobber get a small number plate placed below tail lamp. The custom bike gets wider tyres but the front tyre is bigger size compared to rear while the rear is wider.
KR Customs hasn’t changed anything on engine and it remains stock. The 499 cc single cylinder engine produces 27.2 bhp of power and 41.3 Nm of torque. This engine is mated to 5 speed gearbox. The bobber also comes with an aftermarket exhaust, which is tuned to produce sporty sound. The custom shop hasn’t released details on price of modification.
