- Royal Enfield unveils ‘The 30’ custom bike based on the Continental GT 650
- Built in association with Indonesia-based Krom Works Garage
- Styling draws inspiration from the café racers of 60s
Royal Enfield has showcased a new custom motorcycle christened ‘The 30’ at the 2019 Kustomfest show in Indonesia. Based on the Continental GT 650 café racer, the motorcycle has been designed and developed in association with Indonesia-based Krom Works Garage.
‘The 30’, named after the age of its builder, has been built in accordance with this year’s theme of Kustomfest – ‘Back to The Roots’. The motorcycle draws inspiration from the café racers of 60s and mimics them in a minimalistic and unique manner. It sports a bubble fairing bearing its name ‘30’ in place of the headlamp. The fairing tapers at the back and blends with a compact fuel tank which has deep knee recesses. The narrow single-piece seat is housed on a petite chrome-finished tail section.
Besides the distinctive styling, the motorcycle has been bestowed with a host of premium components which make it one special motorcycle. From KYB upside down forks up front and Sachs rear monoshock to Brembo disc and Tokiko calipers, everything has been tinkered with to make it exclusive. The makers have also paid utmost attention to detail which is exemplified by elements such as billet aluminum footpegs and aluminum clip-on handlebars with leather grips. Despite all these alterations, what has been retained from the stock motorcycle is the 648cc, SOHC, oil-cooled, parallel-twin motor.
Royal Enfield has been participating in Kustomfest show every year with an aim to showcase the ideas and extent up to which its motorcycles can be customised. While the Continental GT 650 is an adorable motorcycle in the stock form itself, ‘The 30’ concept showcases its café racer theme in a purer way. Having said all that, here’s a picture gallery of the custom motorcycle for you to admire.
