Royal Enfield Himalayan gets Husqvarna USD forks and much more – Project Madmax Customization
Front shock and wheels are powder coated in red chrome.
Transfigure Custom House, a Mumbai-based garage which specializes in personalizing Royal Enfield motorcycles, has given the Himalayan adventurer tourer a comprehensive makeover. Called as Project Madmax, the custom tourer benefits from several handcrafted bits and superior components.
The end result is a tourer with a motocross appeal. Visual modifications include a circular LED headlamp with a tall matte black fairing, high-mounted front mudguard, reprofiled fuel tank, new engine guard and a single-piece custom steel motocross seat pan with high density hand-formed foam. The rear license plate holder has been done away with.
The motorcycle is finished in Nardo Grey, a paint job that is available on Audi RS6 performance estate. The grey shade is complemented by red chrome wheels and front shock.
As far as mechanical changes are concerned, Royal Enfield Himalayan Project Madmax employs a sturdy front fork that is derived from Husqvarna 450 TE dirtbike. The 17-inch rims feature spokes that are custom made to match, and are wrapped in Shinko 120/60-17 (front) and 160/50-17 (rear) tyres.
It took Transfigure Custom House a month and INR 1.5 lakhs to complete Project Madmax. But if you are looking at making your Himalayan a true off-roader, this one mod-job you cannot resist as an Himalayan owner.
The powertrain has been left intact. The adventure tourer is powered by a fuel-injected 411 cc single-cylinder air-cooled motor which produces 24.5 bhp and 32 Nm of torque. The gearbox is a 5-speed unit.
