The Royal Enfield Himalayan is the most capable ‘Made in India’ off-road adventure tourer. We have seen many custom bike builders modifying a Himalayan into a scrambler or a café racer and while those are cosmetic mods, Delhi-based TNT Motorcycles has come up with a true-blue cafe racer with a single-seat and fat tyres.
The custom Royal Enfield Himalayan, known as the Glory 411, features fatter telescopic front forks that are borrowed from the Royal Enfield Continental GT, while it gets a custom low-set flat handlebar. The road-biased CEAT tyres are replaced with standard cafe-racer style tyres with fatter side walls. The custom bike builder has done away with the stock windshield, which is replaced by a custom metal cowl.
The original side panels have been swapped with custom panels with an Indian flag embossed on it. Furthermore, the pillion seat has been removed to make way for a rear cowl to complete the cafe racer look. The modified Royal Enfield Himalayan features a chopped front fender and twin LED projector headlights at the front, while the rear mudguard has been omitted entirely.
The bike features a single-piece leather upholstered seat and a stubby exhaust canister. The custom Royal Enfield Himalayan is finished in a shade of British Racing Green with Golden stripes. The motorcycle gets matte black treatment to the underbody, chassis, engine, suspension and the swing-arm. Braking duties are handled by the same 300 mm front and 240 mm rear disc brake setup that does duty on the stock bike. The minimalist cafe racer design lends a racing attitude to the custom Royal Enfield Himalayan.
Coming to the stock bike, the Royal Enfield Himalayan uses a BS-IV compliant 411 cc, single-cylinder, SOHC, air-cooled motor with an oil cooler that pairs to a 5-speed gearbox. The fuel-injected engine is capable of producing a maximum power of 24.5 bhp at 6,500 rpm and a peak torque of 32 Nm at 4,250 rpm.
