Royal Enfield Electra 350 ’86 Mania’ by Maratha Motorcycles
Nithyanandh K, As a toddler, those wheeled machinery fascinated me even before I knew what they’re called as! So here I'm, petrolhead by birth, Mechanical engineer by qualification and automotive reporter by profession!
Maratha Motorcycles, a custom house from Mumbai has modified the Royal Enfield Electra 350. The bike is called ’86 Mania’.
This custom Royal Enfield Electra 350 features a matte green paint job with custom graphics on the tank and side boxes. To improve the ergonomics, it comes with custom, braced handlebars and split seats with leather covers. The nicely cushioned pillion seat features cushioned backrest as well. The lighting system is all-LED, and the alloy wheels get chrome trims, which gives the bike a unique touch.
The powertrain and the frame are all-black. The modification is all cosmetic, and hence the engine remains stock. The 346 cc engine makes 19.8 bhp at 5,250 rpm, and 28 Nm at 4,000 rpm. The mill mates with a 5-speed gearbox. The exhaust header features heat wrap, and ends in a slash-cut exhaust pipe.
Cycle parts are stock too, with telescopic front fork, and twin gas-charged rear shock absorbers. The 86 Mania comes to a halt using 280 mm front disc and a 153 mm drum at the rear. The analogue instrument cluster is stock as well.
