This custom Royal Enfield Classic 500 Bobber gets air suspension!

Here we bring you a Royal Enfield 500 based bobber from Indonesia, which features a beautiful design and air suspension

Royal Enfield motorcycles are very popular around the world right now, thanks to their retro appeal and fun-to-ride nature. Their simplistic architecture also makes them brilliant for custom projects, and many modified Royal Enfield bikes exist around the world. Here we have another one of those brilliant custom machines, named ‘SG Royal Black’, built by Smoked garage.

This custom bobber is actually a Royal Enfield Classic 500, with many great mods. Up front, we see an aftermarket LED headlight, along with a custom one-piece handlebar. The stock instrument cluster was replaced with a semi-circular LCD display. The fuel tank and side panels feature custom paint, consisting of matte black and gloss gray, separated by a red stripe.

The fuel filler cap is also a custom unit. The rider seat is low for a cruiser-style riding posture, and a removable passenger seat is available here. The front and rear fenders are tiny, exposing the balloon-like tires for a macho look. The tires are shod with beautiful wire spoke wheels.

The most unique mod on this custom RE bobber is its air suspension, which can be seen in action in the video above. The suspension can be lowered for a slammed look, and can be raised when more ground clearance or suspension travel is needed, making it a practical addition to the bike!

A custom exhaust was also fitted here, and we’re sure the bike sounds loud and throaty thanks to that. No changes were reported to the engine other than that. The stock engine from a Royal Enfield Classic 500 is a 499cc single, with 27.57bhp and 41.3Nm on tap, mated to a 5-speed gearbox.

In India, Royal Enfield discontinued the Classic 500 last year, and the Classic 350 underwent a generation change earlier this year. RE is expected to launch a 650cc version of the Classic in the near future. Apart from that, the manufacturer is preparing to launch a new 650c cruiser very soon, likely to be named “Super Meteor”, and a 350cc roadster is also in the works.
