Benelli 600i Custom from Mean Green Project Omega at IBW 2017
The Project Omega receives a custom swing arm, wide rim, and fat rear tyre.
With an attractive pricing and a punchy 4-cylinder engine, the Benelli 600i street fighter quickly became a popular medium displacement sportsbike in India. Though an unlikely choice for a mod job, we have to say that this Mean Green Project Omega custom bike has successfully demonstrated the Italian machine’s ability to adopt extensive personalization.
The Mumbai-based design studio has completely overhauled the 600i’s looks by replacing the stock headlamp with a radical looking unit. The firm also ditched the tailpiece and bestowed the motorcycle with hand made two-piece brown leather seats.
The rear end with its triple exhaust pipes tucked underneath the seat (the three tips house what look like brakelight and turn indicators) is even more radical than the headlamp. A wide custom rim with meaty rubber, a new swing arm, and a matte olive green paint job round up the modifications.
It’s unclear if the builder has tuned up the engine. In its stock avatar, Benelli 600i’s in-line 4-cylinder 600 cc engine is mated to a 6-speed transmission to dish out a healthy 85.07 bhp and 54.6 Nm of torque. The suspension and braking systems have been retained.
We suspect that the modifications to affect the motorcycle’s dynamic characteristics quite significantly but on the upside, it is a definite attention grabber on the road.
