‘Fuel Bespoke Motorcycles’ has made a custom Himalayan that is good enough to take on a 4000-km long journey in the Scram Africa expedition. As Royal Enfield Himalayan is counted as a compact adventure tourer in front of the huge adventure motorcycles like BMW R1250GS and Ducati Multistrada 1260, this typical Himalayan Xtreme has a lot more than just visual enhancements attached to itself.
As the modification of bikes is illegal in India by the court orders, this example from the international market shows that Indian products have the potential to keep things easy on the toughest possible terrains. The 411cc single-cylinder engine is still good for 24.5HP and 32Nm, choosing to stay in the stock form under the new body.
The motorcycle now supports dual-tone paint finish, a single-seat and revised front facial expressions. The small and round headlight of the stock model has made way for the squarish unit packed inside a frame while the front fender now remains on the upper end completely.
The rear features a fender-less setup while the exhaust’s placement has been changed to improve the suspension travel without scraping the base. The front and rear tyres are different from the stock unit, featuring rough road-specific treads to improve the off-road capabilities of the adventure motorcycle.
The addition of knuckle guards and other safety features has made the Himalayan Xtreme a living example that matches the dirt bikes of the 1980s. The overall modifications offered to the motorcycle have resulted in weight loss and agility improvement.
The stock model’s instrument console has also been replaced with a minimal unit that sits right next to the custom handlebar. The switches on the centre area are now controls for the updated switchable ABS and USB port control. The rear luggage rack is also removable while ‘Fuel Bespoke Motorcycles’ has kept the stock 21-inch front and 17-inch rear rims intact.
