Royal Enfield Thunderbird 350 ‘Quick Silver’ by Eimor Customs
Praveen M, Engineer-turned-motorcycle journalist. I'm a sucker for cruising down the highways, and twisties in the hills.
This Royal Enfield Thunderbird 350 just got meaner with its latest makeover by Eimor Customs, a motorcycle custom shop from Hyderabad.
This custom bike is called the Quick Silver and looks the part too; thanks to the unique metal-flake paint job on the tank with contrasting black 3D tribal flames and white hand pin stripes. The dual-tone multi-spoke alloys wear a fatter set of rubbers- 110-section at the front and 13-section rear.
The stock twin instrument cluster nicely complements the 4-inch twin pod headlights. They have swapped the mini ape-hanger handlebars with raised straight bars. Another unique feature is the bar-end indicators. Further enhancing the comfort is a well-cushioned single seat. There’s a fender-mounted luggage rack at the back, on which a pillion seat can also be attached if the need arises. This way, the bike retains its form and functionality. The bar-type crash guard comes with twin auxiliary LED lamps for extra visibility at night.
The powertrain, frame, fenders, side body panels are all matte black. Speaking of the powertrain, the 346cc single cylinder twin spark engine churns out 19.8 bhp of power at 5,250 rpm and 28 Nm of torque at 4,000 rpm. The gearbox is a 5-speed unit.
The custom house has retained the front telescopic fork and the rear gas-charged shock absorbers, but have painted them in black. The bike gets a matte-black dual-exit exhaust. The fat rear fender ends with a sleek LED strip-type tail light.
