Eimor Customs is back with another motorcycle that converts a standard Royal Enfield into an appealing package. This time, the folks at Eimor took a Royal Enfield Desert Storm 500 and gave it an elegant, yet a rugged look. The motorcycle, christened 'Europa,' sheds the stock panels for custom-built units.
The fascia retains a round headlight design although the stock blinkers have been traded for compact, aftermarket units. The redesigned front fender gets retro-style mounting points and a black finish with golden and blue coloured stripes. Both, the front and the rear feature wider section tyres that add a muscular look to the package.
An aftermarket, twin-pod instrument console follows the fascia and gives the cockpit a refreshed look. The larger dial on the console displays the speed and odometer along with telltale lights while the smaller pod is occupied by fuel gauge. Steering duties are performed by an aftermarket handlebar that offers more upright ergonomics. The handlebar grips come in the tan-leather coloured finish while the bar-end weights feature integrated lights and a glowing Royal Enfield logo. Another addition to the handlebar is the extra switch that controls the crash guard mounted LED auxiliary lights.
Following the cockpit is a custom fuel tank that features a chrome filler cap on top and Royal Enfield printed on the sides. The asymmetrically mounted fuel filler cap adds a refreshing look to the package. The custom-made saddle gets a tan leather finish with a diamond stitch pattern that gives the Europa a neo-classic look. Do note that unlike the stock motorcycle, the seat on the Europa is a single-piece unit that sits on a redesigned sub-frame. The area under the saddle gets a mesh design.
Similar to the front, the rear fender gets a black finish with gold and blue coloured stripes. The fender at the back also mounts an aftermarket tail light and blinkers. The side panels and battery cover get a black finish with highlights of gold colour. The golden coloured finish is also visible on the engine cover. Lastly, the motorcycle comes with an aftermarket exhaust that should offer enhanced sound to the thumper.
The stock covers for the front forks have been replaced by gaiters that add a rugged look to the motorcycle. The hardware specs remain identical to the stock motorcycle. Conventional telescopic forks at the front and twin-sided springs at the rear perform shock absorption duties. Stopping power comes from a disc brake at the front and a drum unit at the back.
Overall, it’s another commendable job by Eimor Customs, and they deserve praise for their work.
