A lot of people who buy a car or a motorcycle have the desire to customise it according to their taste. They do it so that their vehicle stands apart in the crowd. Royal Enfield's iconic motorcycle the Classic 350 is one of the most popular motorcycles available in the Indian market today and we have seen that a lot of people have modified their Classic 350 in many ways.
However, as per the images seen here, Reddy Customs has taken a BS4 Classic 350 and modified it into a neo-retro bobber. This motorcycle has been named 'Gangster'. It looks really cool and one cannot tell that underneath all that modification, lies a Classic 350.
The customised Gangster Classic 350 features a dual-tone black and orange theme along with silver accents. The motorcycle also gets a single-piece seat layout, a custom fuel tank with custom shrouds for an aggressive stance, the fenders on both ends have been chopped off and it also gets a short exhaust. However, the motorcycle with all the modified parts really stands apart from the crowd.
The motorcycle also features an LED headlight, tail light and indicators. It also gets spoked wheels and dual-purpose tyres and the rear tyre looks slightly broader than the one on the stock motorcycle. However, the handlebars, switch-gear, mirrors, instrument cluster, front forks, rear suspension and the engine are retained from the original Classic 350.
Mechanically, the Classic 350 is powered by a 346 cc single-cylinder, 4-stroke, twin-spark, air-cooled engine that belts out 19.8bhp of power at 5,250rpm, and 28Nm of peak torque at 4,000rpm. The engine comes mated to a 5-speed gearbox.
The BS6-compliant version of the Classic 350, was also launched in the Indian market at Rs 1.65 lakh ex-showroom (Delhi). The Classic 350 BS6 is powered by an updated version of the same 346cc single-cylinder air-cooled engine. The company also updated the 650 twins to meet the BS6 emission norms in India. The Interceptor 650 and the Continental GT650 are powered by the same 649cc air and oil-cooled, parallel-twin cylinder engine and produce 47bhp and a peak torque of 52Nm. The engine comes mated to a six-speed gearbox and features a slipper-clutch.
