Royal Enfield Three new custom 650cc twins

Royal Enfield unveiled three custom motorcycles based on its yet-to-be-launched twin-cylinder platform. These bikes (Lock Stock, Rohini and Interceptor) were displayed at the seventh edition of the Wheels and Waves custom bike show in France.

The Lock Stock and Rohini have used the Continental GT 650 as the platform, while the Interceptor – as the name suggests – has used the Interceptor 650 as its platform.


1) Lock Stock – by Royal Enfield

The LockStock is based on Royal Enfield’s first ever 650-cc engine that will power the upcoming Interceptor and the Continental GT 650. The bike has been transformed into a high-performance dragster. Most of the parts that we see on the bike have been replaced with newer customised parts except for the fuel tank and the engine.













2) Rohini – by Young Guns Speed Shop

The Young Guns Speed Shop has taken the café racer approach to this build. The bike features a strange but interesting paint job that takes inspiration from India’s space program and the Rohini satellites. The bulbous café racer fairing, the flat seat and the boxy tail section give the motorcycle a retro appearance. The bike is finished in bare aluminium and has reflective paint on some of the body work.



                  









 3) The Interceptor – by Old Empire Motorcycles

Old Empire Motorcycles decided to take a different approach to their model. They took an interceptor 650 and took off all of the parts they found unnecessary. The bike features a deep metallic red paint job and a leather seat. This bike also has a lowered stance and a blacked-out motor, which make it look aggressive. Another nice touch is how the custom bike maker has hidden away the bike's wires and cables. This Interceptor also comes fitted with keyless ignition, replacing the metal key one would find on a regular Interceptor.
