Bulleteer Customs has morphed a Royal Enfield into a tech-laden custom motorcycle called ‘Sukarno’.

The front suspension is from WP, presumably borrowed from the KTM Duke range.

The custom house built the bike for Kannada actor, Rakshit Shetty. The base bike appears to be a Royal Enfield Thunderbird 500, but the bike has been heavily modified. The front end comes with upside down fork with gold anodised finish. They have replaced the stock swingarm with a custom unit that has allowed them to install a monoshock at the rear. It neatly hides under the seat too. The custom fenders and the tank have a red paint job with black stripes. The single seat gives the bike a Bobber-like appeal, and the LED tail light is integrated to the seat. The beach bars and the forward-set footpegs result in a laid-back riding stance.

The modification house has replaced the side panels with custom ones bearing the ‘Bulleteer Customs’ logo. The powertrain gets black treatment, with a heat-wrapped, scrambler-like exhaust. Apart from the colour, the engine appears to be stock. Both the front and rear alloy wheels come with meatier rubber, and the instrumentation is aftermarket as well. The rear uses Pirelli Angel GT tyres, which is likely to be a 160-section unit. The handlebars get bar-end indicator, which offers a fine balance between form and functionality. They have upgraded the brakes too, with petal disc and Bybre radial calliper up front; and a disc at the rear.
