Royal Enfield marked a spectacular beginning to 2016 with the Himalayan and they are on their toes planning and working on next products. At the Wheels and Waves festival in France, one of Europe’s newest and most famous surfing cum custom motorcycling events, the company has unveiled two factory built customs – one a turbocharged bike called Mo’ Powa and the other an off-roader which goes by the name Dirty Duck!
Held in Biarritz, France, this is the third time Royal Enfield has participated in the Wheels and Waves. These bikes have been made by the company’s UK design centre in Leicestershire and have literally managed to create waves amongst the brand loyalists. Let’s have a closer look at both the bikes:
- Mo’ Powa:
This Dragster-meets-Mad Max motorcycle and adds bruteness to the already macho Classic 500. Despite having a turbocharger, it has not failed to flaunt its classic appeal. Changes include an extended wheelbase, newer suspension for more travel, swing arm from the Continental GT, special Continental tyres and a hand built custom exhaust by Harris Performance.
- Dirty Duck:
Building on the ‘survive anything‘ attitude of Jeep and Land Rover, with the Dirty Duck Royal Enfield is aiming to do the same on two wheels. Based on the cafe racer Continental GT, this badass bike flaunts a snorkel by Harris Performance. It also gets a shortened rear frame, Continental tyres, projector head lamps and a new seat. This rustic, yet functional look makes it a real beauty!
Anybody who owns a Classic or the Continental GT would want to do this?
