The custom job costs INR 4.5 lakhs.

Road Rage Custom Builds, a Mumbai-based outfit which built the idiosyncratic Hero Karizma custom bike has come up with this mean looking Royal Enfield Thunderbird custom bike. Commissioned by cricketer Suryakumar Yadav who plays IPL for KKR and Ranji for Mumbai, the one-off job is aptly named as Black Knight.

What was once a Thunderbird 350 Twinspark has been stripped off completely and rebuilt again with custom chassis, body parts and color themes. The mean front mask renders the custom bike its fierce character and it’s backed up by custom fuel tank, single seat, black painted engine, black custom alloy wheels, an upward facing exhaust pipe and a smoothly arching tailpiece.

The Black Knight is commissioned by IPL cricketer Suryakumar Yadav.

The menacing looks are further enhanced by chassis-mounted LED headlamps, strategically placed fluorescent green ornamental plates and a humongous 250 mm section rear tyres. A very small circular instrument dial rounds off the design.

The custom bike adopts regular front telescopic fork and twin coil springs at the rear. Both wheels are retarded by a disc brake each and a flat handlebar makes for a sporty riding posture.

Road Rage says that the Royal Enfield Thunderbird custom bike costs INR 4.5 lakhs to build. The end result is a sleek looking sports chopper which stands by its name.
