This Royal Enfield Himalayan modified 4 wheel ATV makes us wonder why and how?
Royal Enfield is perhaps one of the most commonly modified bikes in India. In a recent incident, a cycling enthusiast took the change to a whole new level. He transformed his Royal Enfield Himalayan into a quad. This four-wheeled machine was made by a Jaipur-based customization workshop named Kunwar Customs. The now four-wheeled all-terrain vehicle (ATV) has undergone changes to its body, engine and tires.
In a video shared by Vampvideo on YouTube, all the details regarding the personalization were explained. The person who did the customization mentioned that the ATV costs around Rs 3.5 lakh and can be made in about three months. The customizer played a bit with the gears in order to get more torque from the engine at the rear wheels. The vehicle is equipped with a 411 cc single cylinder engine that produces 24.3 hp of power at 6500 rpm and 32 Nm of maximum torque at 4500 rpm. The transmission functions of this machine are provided by a 5-speed gearbox.
Regarding the bodywork, very few elements such as the lower part of the frame, the crankset, etc. have been preserved. Everything outside of that has been customized or changed. The instrument cluster and handlebars seen on this machine are from an old Thunderbird 350. All body panels on the ATV are plastic fiber. In order to synchronize the fuel tank with the bodywork, the customizer replaced the original tank with a metal tank.
The sleek machine has machine-cut alloy rims shod with studded off-road tires, single discs on the rear wheels, a dual disc brake setup on the front wheels and LED headlights with LED rings around . A luggage rack has also been added to the rear. In order to keep the brand name on the vehicle, Kunwar Customs added the Royal Enfield branding and custom decals.
