16Moto Performance recently worked on a Royal Enfield Bullet 500 and have successfully made an unbelievable machine out of the retro thumper. Slightly inspired by the Suzuki Intruder M1800R, this muscle-packed motorcycle is ideally a match between cruiser and street DNA.
Apart from its RE engine and kick-starter, it has its own unique identity featuring huge panels, larger-than-life fuel tank and a rear wheel that could put commuter cars to shame. As unique as it could get, 16Moto Performance has done a fantastic modification job by offering a unique look to this Bullet 500.
The front section of the motorcycle features thick USD forks, a large disc brake and black alloy wheel that is actually different than the one used at the rear end. The extra-wide handlebar and all-new fuel tank further make this machine massive in terms of the overall dimensions. The customizers have equipped this modified Bullet 500 with a fully-digital instrument console, further bringing options to the raised part of its fuel tank. The seat is wider than usual and gets ribbed stitching for added comfort.
Keeping the Royal Enfield DNA intact, the rear seat is almost at the same level as the front one, providing an equal level of comfort to both the rider as well as the pillion. The rear end features an LED taillight that is flanked by dark-orange turn indicators on both sides.
A unique setup of twin full-sized mono-shocks can be spotted easily, both of them being placed under the seat in an unconventional manner. The motorcycle further features an extra-wide swing-arm and a massive rear wheel with a huge custom-made disc brake.
16Moto Performance has imparted a white and blue colour theme to the motorcycle panels, further using gloss black to highlight the extra-large rear tyre hugger. The engine has been further mated to a black free-flow exhaust while no performance upgrades have been offered to the motorcycle. It continues to be powered by the same 499cc, air-cooled, fuel-injected, single-cylinder engine that generates a maximum power of 27.2HP and a peak torque of 41.3Nm. The engine remains mated to a 5-speed transmission.
