The Royal Enfield Himalayan has been tastefully modified into ‘The Rooster Trike.’ The custom Himalayan was commissioned by Royal Enfield for the ‘Royal Enfield Garage Café’ in Goa. The Rooster Trike features several modifications and customised parts, but its biggest USP is the addition of the rear differential and a reverse gear.

The modified Royal Enfield Himalayan also features custom Bluetooth speakers for added fun on the Goan beaches. At the front, the Himalayan Trike features long-travel USD forks, a chopped fender and twin LED projector headlights with a small wind deflector. The rear-end has been chopped to make it a single seater and there’s a single tanned brown leather seat for the rider.

The swingarm on the modified Royal Enfield Himalayan Trike has been replaced with a rear differential, while a reverse gear has been added for improved practicality.

The custom Royal Enfield Himalayan Trike comes equipped with an 18-inch front wire-spoke wheel and 10-inch alloy wheels at the back. The front wheel is paired with a 120/80 section knobby tyre while the rear wheels are wrapped with AT20x11-10 section knobby tyres. The linkage-type rear mono-shock has been carried over from the stock bike.
