Royal Enfield Classic 350 ‘Achilles’ by Bulleteer Customs
Praveen M, Engineer-turned-motorcycle journalist. I'm a sucker for cruising down the highways, and twisties in the hills.
Scrambler motorcycles are one of the most fun-to-ride custom motorcycles because of their inherent chuck-ability in the dirt. Popular Bengaluru-based custom house Bulleteer Customs has made one such motorcycle with the Royal Enfield Classic 350 underpinnings.
The bike is named Achilles and was made for a Dr. Eash who is also a passionate wildlife photographer. What’s better than ‘scrambling’ into the woods and capturing Mother Nature’s moments!
The bike’s front black forks have gaiters to protect them from the elements. The headlamp and instrument cluster are custom. The orange-painted fuel tank is from the Royal Enfield Thunderbird. The bike also gets a bench seat with brown finishing and a high-set rear fender. Rugged knobby tires wrap the alloys. The engine, crank case and the frame are all-black. They have also wrapped the exhaust header which enhances the looks.
The stylish alloys and chromed-out exhaust give a nice contrasting look to the bike. Overall, it’s a stunning metamorphosis from a vintage-styled motorcycle to a scrambler. A 346cc carburetted engine powers the Achilles. It puts out 19.8 bhp of power at 5,250 rpm and 28 Nm of torque at 4,000 rpm. A five-speed gearbox does the transmission duty.
