Bulleteer Customs, the popular Bangalore-based motorcycle customizers, have come up with a modified Royal Enfield Thunderbird 350 that has been christened as the ‘Brat Bob’. The custom Royal Enfield motorcycle gets a thoroughly updated styling and looks a lot sleeker and even a tad bolder than before.
The front-end of this modified Thunderbird 350 features a sleeker fender, which goes a long way in shedding off all that visual bulk from the regular motorcycle. It also gets a black-painted spoke rim shod with a fatter tire. Moving on, you get a custom headlamp that houses a projector unit and a stylish DRL. Once astride, you’ll be quick to notice the single-pod instrument cluster and the lower handlebar. The chrome-plated clutch and brake levers have been carried over but the Brat Bob misses out on the chrome-plated bar-end weights.
The ‘Brat Bob’ gets a matte grey paint scheme, which further enhances the rather aggressive look of the motorcycle. The original fuel tank has been retained and the Royal Enfield badge has been replaced with ‘Bulleteer Customs’ sticker. The original seat has been replaced with a custom low-placed single-seat unit. The rear fender is also new and gets a custom tail lamp. There’s also a new cylindrical housing for the battery. The cycle parts have been painted black.
The original engine has been retained. In its stock form, this single-cylinder 346cc engine produces a maximum power of 19.8 bhp at 5,250 RPM along with a peak torque of 28 Nm at 4,000 RPM. The motor comes mated to a five-speed transmission. The original suspension setup, which comprises of conventional telescopic front forks and twin rear gas-charged shock absorbers, has been retained. Even the brakes, which include a 280 mm disc brake at the front and a 240 mm disc brake at the rear, have been carried over. The only performance modification that this motorcycle seems to be carrying is the aftermarket megaphone exhaust system. Overall, we like the way the Bangalore-based motorcycle customizer has transformed a cruiser motorcycle into a pretty aggressive-looking machine.[“Source-cartoq”]
