EIMOR Customs never ceases to amaze the audience with their extraordinary customization to the stock motorcycles. From offering the motorcycle a unique look while keeping its authenticity intact, they are one of the best modifiers in India. One such great customization we came across by EIMOR is their recent work done on a Royal Enfield Classic 500. Christening their new creation as Beryl, the customizers have brought the client’s dream into reality.

According to the team, the RE Classic 500 customer reached with a clear vision. He wanted a minimal modification to his motorcycle while at the same time, wanted to keep its elegance intact. The client wanted his motorcycle to be customized based on “JUGAAD”, one of the recently modified motorcycles by Bombay Custom Works.

The team at EIMOR took the design inspiration from the Jugaad’s work while named their interpretation as “Beryl”. According to them, Beryl is the mineral that offers the Emerald its authentic colour and beauty. The customizers have offered 18-inch sturdy tyres to the motorcycle at either end. The front and the rear fender of the RE Classic 500 has been redesigned with a beak at either rend.

The handlebar edges of the motorcycle have been offered a golden colour scheme while equipped with custom detailing  – “Handcrafted for Madhusudan”. According to the customizers, major bits and pieces of the motorcycle have been kept in the stock condition while a new tail light and turn signals have been installed at the rear.

The fuel tank of the RE Classic 500 has been equipped with brass badges while the side panel of the motorcycle features handcrafted leather detailing by Oblum Leather Works. The customizers have also offered laser detailing on the fuel tank cap as well as on the bar-end weights of the motorcycle. The overall green Xirallic ultra glossy colour with contrast leather detailing on the saddle and side panels is bound to offer the Beryl major attention on the road.

Mechanically, the stock condition of the motorcycle remains the same. Powering the Beryl is the same 499cc, single-cylinder, 4-stroke twin-spark engine capable of churning out a maximum power of 27.2 Bhp at 5250 rpm and a peak torque of 41.3 Nm at 4000 rpm. The engine is mated to five-speed constant mesh gearbox.

DS Design (Dhana Stickers) is back with another hotshot KTM RC 200, this time wrapped in a vibrant shade of Violet. Not everyone dares to go this bright with their ride but those who can, nothing gets better on the road than spotting a clean and head-turning motorcycle like the RC 200 you see here.

The perfect wrap quality assures that no one finds a mistake on a spriting canvas filled with beauty on the road. DS Design has used a perfect colour combination here. The rear under-seat panels have been left white to complement the rear monoshock while the front fascia has been finished in matte black for the perfect contrast. Violet is seen on the fuel tank, side fairing, and the front fender of the sports bike.

Performance parts of the motorcycle have been left untouched on this KTM RC 200. The sticker job is now custom-finished with all the three labels (KTM, RC and 200) placed throughout the three-layer fairing. KTM RC 200 is powered by a 199.5cc engine, which is liquid-cooled, fuel-injected and equally good in terms of mileage and performance.

The 25HP of maximum power is achieved at 10,000 rpm while 19.2 Nm of maximum torque comes early at 8000 rpm. The engine comes mated to a 6-speed gearbox. The sportbike is equipped with projector headlights and a clip-on handlebar as standard. KTM recently launched the BS6-compliant model of the RC 200 in India with an ex-showroom price tag of 1.96 lakh.

List of BS4 Premium Bike Discounts: As the entire nation is facing the wrath of the coronavirus pandemic, the automobile manufacturers have been hit the worst. With the BS6 emission norms now valid in the country from April 1, 2020, the manufacturers were supposed to liquidate their BS4 stock before March 31, 2020. However, the decreased footfall and the nationwide lockdown has made it difficult for the dealerships to sell out their existing BS4 stock before the deadline.

Looking for some relief measures, the authorities approached the Supreme Court for the extension of the deadline. The Court ruled in the favour of the manufacturers though only offering an extension of 10 days after the lockdown to sell 10% of the BS4 stock which is way less than the actual time required for all the liquidation.

In addition to the 10 days extension, the manufacturers who have sold the motorcycles or any other vehicle without the registration, can also officially register the inventory in the extended period.

Though the additional time offered to the dealerships after the lockdown is much less, the manufacturers are sweetening up the deals with major BS4 bike discounts on the big bikes. This will enable them to liquidate their BS4 inventory as soon as possible as well as earn maximum profits. Here are the discounts available on the BS4 premium bikes across the dealerships in India.

Here’s How You Can Increase the Top Speed of Your Bike: The performance of a bike depends on hundreds of factors but majorly a few out of them are responsible for the everyday stress that we can face with our vehicles. A regularly-serviced and well-maintained motorcycle can be a good choice for most of the riders but some are in need of a few extra horses out of their two-wheeled companion. Here are 5 quick ways that can help you improve the performance and top speed of your motorcycle.

5 Ways to Increase the Top Speed of Your Bike

1) Weight Loss – More weight means a lag in performance and this is one of the major factors that keeps your bike’s speed and mileage on the lower side. A lighter rider could win a race from a heavier one when both are riding the same motorcycle as less power is wasted in pulling the excess weight. Getting rid of heavier parts that are not usable for you can help your bike perform better on the road.

ns200-relaunch

A lighter exhaust system and use of alloy wheels in place of spoke wheels can drastically improve the performance of your bike. Getting rid of the centre stand, saree guard, metal grab rails, leg guard, and a few other components can also save more than 5-6 kgs in the first attempt. If you ride solo, the frame-suspended rear footpegs can also be removed.

2) Air Filter – A performance-spec air filter is one of the best ways to boost the performance of your motorcycle as it is even the most inexpensive component that helps the engine get more air and burn some extra fuel to produce more power. The aftermarket components are even better in terms of filtration, helping the engine stay healthy and perfectly working. However, this modification requires a few other parallel tunings.

pc-kn-filter

3) Carburettor Tuning & ECU Mapping – Carburettor-fed bikes are easier and convenient to tune as setting up a perfect mixture helps the bike perform in the most smooth possible manner. Not just that, pre-tuned performance carburettors are also available in the market. This works best when combined with a performance air filter and exhaust system. Some modifiers even go for high-performance engine parts but that is not possible on the engines of entry-level basic motorcycles.

36c5544b35fc1e4c2f3ec3348f0ea864_f1668

ECUs are used in bikes that are electrically more sound and are equipped with features like fuel injection, ride-by-wire etc. The controller unit can be programmed through a laptop and it acts in the same way as technicians perform carburettor tuning on older bikes. It takes more precision and even costs more than carburettor tuning.

4) Performance Exhaust – Apart from bringing down the amount of weight a stock silencer carries, performance exhausts help the engine push out the gases at a faster rate. This, in turn, means the motorcycle can now burn more fuel and get rid of the gases in an easy manner, helping it work overtime and that too by causing lesser stress on itself. The performance exhausts even provide aural pleasure through different sounds at different speeds.

Akrapovic BMW S 1000 RR S-B10E1-RC-1

5) Gearing – A motorcycle can be made quicker or much faster by making changes in the gearing of the same. The right combination of front and rear sprocket can help you get the best combination of acceleration and top speed. Changing the number of teeth makes all the difference.

When seen precisely, the bigger rear sprocket or smaller front sprocket will result in more acceleration while doing the opposite will make the motorcycle more focused towards top speed. This does not improve the power output but only changes the way power will be used while riding.

General Tips to Improve the Performance of Your Bike

Lubricating your bike’s chain properly and keeping the air pressure right in your tyres will even help you get the maximum benefit out of your motorcycle’s altered parts. When top speed and instant acceleration are left on the other side, few other factors also enhance the performance of a motorcycle.

The use of an adjustable suspension helps tune the same in such a way that motorcycle could be used both for the road and track purposes. A set of tyres with a better level of traction can offer you more speeds at corners and even bring more safety to the rider. The same happens with performance braking systems.

Royal Enfield is Working on Electric Motorcycles: The revolutionary switch to electric mobility is unstoppable, irrespective of how much the bike enthusiasts dislike it. Every manufacturer is today devoted to offering electrification to its customer base and in the race, Royal Enfield does not want to be left out.

In an interview with ET Auto, the Royal Enfield’s CEO Mr Vinod Dasari has confirmed that the brand has already started working upon its electric motorcycles. He also added that even though there is a downturn in the market, the brand has not reduced the capital infusion for the year. Instead, Royal Enfield is trying to utilise the amount in the development of its new products and it also includes the development process of its electric motorcycles.

He said in his official statement, “I think we have hit the bottom. Given the range of products that will come, it (a double-digit growth rate) is possible. The general economic sentiment has also got to improve. High-end vehicles get hit much worse during downturns. But the minute the sentiment improves, the fastest-growing segment will also be this.”

“Just because there was a downturn, we did not cut down on our capex. I don’t think we’ll spend any more on any large (facility). Most of our capex will go into capability building, new products, electric and other stuff. And it will also go into many small assembly plants around the world”, added Dasari.

Through his statement, it can be concluded that Royal Enfield will be developing new products and electric motorcycles, which will be done by setting up small-scale assembly plants across India. It is being speculated that the company may showcase a fully-electric prototype at the EICMA that will be held in November this year.

EIMOR Customs, the house of custom motorcycles in Hyderabad is one of the most sought after customization shops in the country when it comes to offering splendid designs that are worthy of a second look. The customizers at EIMOR have recently modified a Royal Enfield Thunderbird 350 for a client who has christened his modified motorcycle as Kapidhwaja, inspired by the name of Arjuna’s chariot in Mahabharata.

The client contacted the custom motorcycle shop with a clear vision in mind and the modifiers have delivered the same. The modified motorcycle has been equipped with a broader Triple Tree that offers it an overall wider look as compared to the stock Thunderbird model.

Coming to the front fascia, the Kapidhwaja has been equipped with a redesigned LED headlight which replaces the stock unit. Both the rear and front of the motorcycle have been equipped with 18-inch wheels with 80-spoke rims. In addition to this, the tail light of the motorcycle has also been redesigned and now features an LED unit housed inside a unique brass casing.

In addition to the tail light, the brass detailing is carried on to the handlebar-end weights as well as the front shock caps. The handlebar of the modified motorcycle further features smaller and round turn signals neatly integrated on either side. The twin-pod instrument unit seen on the stock Thunderbird variant has been replaced with a single-pod fully digital instrument panel.

The front mudguard has also been redesigned and is now smaller as compared to the one offered on the stock motorcycle. The single-seat saddle has been further redesigned with premium leather with ribbed detailing.

Coming to the fuel tank design, the modifiers have offered the motorcycle a smaller peanut-design tank that adds to the motorcycle’s overall unique profile. Adorned with red metal flakes with gold leaf design, the fuel tank further features a brass tank cap with “Thotakura” encrypted on it.

The modifiers have offered unique fabrication to the side covers as well as the capsules. The aesthetically designed Swagman exhaust system further adds to the motorcycle’s bulky outlook. Besides the red colour offered to the fuel tank, the rest of the motorcycle features a matte black colour scheme. The pillion seat backrest has been offered chrome finishing and features “Kapidhwaja” engraved in a beautiful font.

Apart from the cosmetic changes, the motorcycle has been kept mechanically unaltered. Powering the Kapidhwaja is the same 346cc engine that is good for offering maximum power of 19.8BHP @ 5250 rpm and a peak torque of 28Nm @ 4000 rpm. The engine comes mated to a 5-speed gearbox.

Dirt Machine Custom Motorcycles, a modification house in Indore has been known to offer some splendid motorcycle modifications that are bound to grab the attention on the roads and their recently modified Royal Enfield Classic 500 Desert Storm variant is something worth mentioning. The Desert Storm colour variant is one exclusive shade for the already popular Classic series while the customizers have made it even more exclusive by adding performance parts and raising its appeal through certain highlights. The modifiers have christened the customized motorcycle as Royal Enfield Classic Combat.

Coming to the cosmetic changes, this 500cc Classic Combat features 120mm front and 150mm rear tyre shod with fine aluminium spoke wheels. The customizers have further equipped the motorcycle with disc brakes at either side though only the front is available with dual working discs for maximum braking power. Other mechanical updates made to the motorcycle include WP upside-down forks at the front while the rear suspension has been left unaltered as seen on the stock version.

Coming to the cosmetic changes, the motorcycle has been equipped with custom lightweight front and rear fenders. The design of the dual projector headlight on the front remains the same while the rear now features under-seat LED brake light. The modifiers have further offered the Classic Combat with a dual pod instrument console which replaces the Classic’s standard speedometer unit. The toolbox at either side of the customized motorcycles features the “500” sticker in black while the fuel tank has been adorned with “Combat” sticker at either side.

The motorcycle was specifically customized for Nitin Dev, a resident of Indore, who wanted the original accent of the machine to stay alive. It took the customizers almost 45 days to modify the Classic 500 into this beauty. Mechanically, the engine specifications of the motorcycle were not altered since the Classic 500 is already a powerful machine with a 499cc, single-cylinder, air-cooled engine producing 27.2BHP of maximum power and 41.4Nm of highly effective torque.

The Classic Combat features a custom swingarm that makes space for the rear disc. The brand recently discontinued its 500cc line up of cruisers due to the negligible demand in the Indian market. The Royal Enfield Classic 500 is only available with the dealerships till the stock lasts while the BS6-compliant variant of the same will not be launched.
