Developed in collaboration with Bikerbnb, these scramblers sport impressive hardware

Royal Enfield's worst kept secret is the sheer number of bikes it currently has in various stages of testing. Moreover, it also runs a sweet custom bike programme across the globe, out of which have come up with some stonkingly beautiful Royal Enfield bikes.

Here are two scramblers showcased at EICMA 2022, which began life as a couple of Royal Enfield Interceptor 650s. A creation of the brand’s collaboration with Bikerbnb, these bikes are designed to tackle the trails of the Scottish Highlands in style. They also serve as the perfect preview of the production-spec Royal Enfield Scrambler 650 that has been spotted testing recently.

Unlike most custom scramblers which are more show than function, these two custom Royal Enfield scramblers have undergone a whole set of revisions for better off-road stability under the supervision of the experts at Harris Performance. This includes a custom offset headstock bearing cup to increase the rake and a custom front spindle bush to reduce the trail.

The underpinnings feature Öhlins suspension at both ends, 19-/17-inch wire-spoke rims wrapped with Pirelli Rally STR rubber and a Brembo P4 four-piston caliper up front. Additionally, the tank has been moved slightly towards the rider, and a high-rise ProTaper Evo flat track handlebar replaces the stock unit.

These two scramblers also get a set of geeky features, with a single Motogadget instrument console, and an RFID fob to offer keyless access. The bikes sport a visor borrowed from the Royal Enfield Himalayan, while a Koso Thunderbolt LED headlight with grille and custom enduro-style fender absolutely nail the scrambler aesthetic.

A custom-made gel seat from Tom Hurley and a new luggage rack takes care of rider comfort and their luggage as they take in the sights offered by the Scottish Highlands. Draped in inverted blue-and-white liveries, these two Interceptor 650s look absolutely gorgeous.

While these sweet custom Scramblers give us a clear idea of the production-spec bike, expect the India-bound model to come with more affordable bits in the suspension and braking department. The bike will get an inverted fork, twin preload-adjustable rear shock absorbers, and brakes from Bybre. Expect Royal Enfield to launch the bike with prices starting at Rs 3.15 lakh (ex-showroom), possibly around June 2023.
