This custom motorcycle retains Meteor 350’s original silhouette but gets a lot of custom mods
Do you feel like Royal Enfield Meteor 350 falls short in flair? Do you feel like something is missing from the overall package? Something essential that enhances the persona of the motorcycle? Then, only a custom Meteor 350 is your answer.
Custom bikes come with a certain individuality that stock bikes coming straight out of the factory lacks. It is because OEMs don’t design their motorcycles to only appeal to a bunch of enthusiasts excluding the mainstream audience. They are manufactured to appeal to a wide range of customers across various regions, religions, cultures, mindsets, tastes and more aspects. So, if an individual wants something special, a custom bike is their only solution.
Royal Enfield Meteor 350 Scrambler
One such company aiming to offer individuality is MODBIKE. They have created a truly unique version of Royal Enfield’s Meteor 350. The main attraction to this custom bike is not actually the stunning paint scheme. It is the fat 130/70 section tyre that is wrapped around the 17’ alloy wheel from the manufacturer.
To accommodate the wider tyre at the front, it gets a custom mudguard too. They have tried to give it a scrambler vibe too. Hence, it gets custom fork gators, a modified rear subframe with integrated LED taillights and also a custom bash plate to protect the engine from bumps and obstacles. The maker has also played around with the rider’s triangle by slightly changing the positioning of footpegs.
Apart from the fat front tyre, there are other elements added at the front to make the Royal Enfield Meteor 350 Scrambler feel substantial. Some of them are a 30 mm custom handlebar with custom holder, a custom LED headlight and custom mirrors. The main visual distinction from a regular Meteor 350 in terms of road presence is the dual exhausts. These aren’t dummy, both exhausts are functional and the second exhaust is fed by a custom exhaust router. Take a look at the walkaround video below.
Finishing off the looks are custom seats, an aftermarket tyre hugger with registration plate mount, a custom paint scheme and custom RE logo painted on the tank. Custom Meteor 350 M also gets a custom side stand and a centre stand.
