To date Royal Enfield has been playing a major part in being a canvas for customizers in this country. But when Kunwar Customs, Jaipur, set out to build a custom project, it had to be a cafe racer, and they wanted to break the stereotypes. So, the donor bike was selected, and it was a Pulsar 200 NS.
The customizer started by ripping off all the body panels and parts including the exhaust. When designing, the customizer has managed to keep one crucial point – The bike was meant to carry a pillion. The rear of the chassis was chopped and closed with a typical round end with enough space to accommodate one more rider.
The customizer then started by handcrafting each and every part that was initially ripped off. If one carefully observes the bike, the customizer has managed to put together entire package as a whole. If one notices, the fuel tank has been changed entirely. The shape has been well rounded off with a volumetric rectangular with a scoop in the tank to accommodate the knees when one is riding the bike. The bike now sports an 18 Litre tank which flaunts the customizer logo as against the 10 liters which the stock bike had.
The seat is now a straight line flat with minimalistic padding. The rear cowl too has been custom-crafted. The side panels also have been custom designed to add to the appeal of the bike.
The exhaust is now custom made and the stock end can have been replaced with an SC project. The front headlamp has been completely replaced with a round one, which has DRL’s too. The stock handlebar has been replaced with a custom drop-down cafe racer type clip on. The bike features a custom tail tidy kit for the rear which further enhances the looks of it. The tail lamp is an all-LED, with integrated turn indicators as well. The bike also features an outsourced Digital meter with integrated light and turn indicators.
The interesting aspect of the project was all the parts were painstakingly made in house by the Kunwar team. The bike has been tastefully designed and executed to perfection with a minimalistic approach that adds an appeal of the character of the bike, doing all this within an affordable budget of 40K INR
