This bobber concept based on the Royal Enfield Continental GT 650 looks stunning
Royal Enfield motorcycles are one of the oldest motorcycle brands in the world still in production. The brand is actually very popular among motorcyclists around the world. The Chennai-based two-wheeler manufacturer now has several models in its portfolio and currently the 650 twins – Interceptor 650 and Continental GT 650 are the flagship model. Royal Enfield is also working on several new models and is also working on updating existing models. One thing that Royal Enfield motorcycles are widely used around the world is the modifications. The builder even has a project to promote customizations. Here we have a conceptual image of the bobber bike which is actually based on a Royal Enfield Continental GT 650.
The images of this concept motorcycle were designed by Motorworks Renovation, which is an Indian bicycle customization start-up. They named this concept “Old Lady” because it has a retro style. Looking at the picture, it is clear that several modifications need to be made to the original motorcycle to shape it like a bobber. Renovatio Motorworks can actually build this motorcycle for you. All you need is a RE Continental GT 650 and a fair amount of money and time.
Almost all of the panels on this bike will be changed. It seems that even the frame has been slightly customized for this purpose. Starting from the front, the concept gets a beam fork with a single shock absorber in the center. The headlight is positioned just above the front fender. The original wheels will be removed and replaced with wide spoke wheels with large tires wrapped around. The rims were painted in a golden tint. It looks like the front and rear disc plates have been changed as well.
The instrument cluster is not seen in the concept and the handlebars seen here are also a wide unit. LED turn signals are placed at the end of the handlebars along with mirrors. The fuel tank looks like a custom teardrop-shaped unit. As this is designed to look like a bobber, the seats have been repositioned. It now offers a very low seat with a single suspended seat. The rear suspensions have also been repositioned. The rear fender is a bespoke unit that exposes the fat tire to the rear. The rear wheel also receives the gold paint treatment. The brake and clutch lever on this motorcycle also gets the golden hue.
As for the engine area, the fully chrome engine cowls are now covered with a matte black powder coating. The original side panels are replaced with custom units with the “Old Lady” branding on them. The original exhaust on this Continental GT 650 has been removed and replaced with a bespoke unit with a chrome finish. It’s just a concept that Renovatio Motorworks came up with and when they start working on an original bike some changes should happen.
It is not known if a modification will be made to the engine of this motorcycle. The Royal Enfield Continental GT is a motorcycle with decent horsepower figures. It is powered by an oil-cooled, fuel-injected 648cc twin-cylinder engine that generates 47 hp and 52 Nm of maximum torque. The engine is mated to a 6-speed gearbox.
