to inspire and foster creativity amongst motorcyclists, Royal Enfield recently
unveiled the ‘Kamala’ an all new custom motorcycle based on the Continental GT
650, built by Cristian Sosa of Sosa Metalworks. The Kamala is inspired by
vintage board track racers - its lean form and large thin wheels perfectly
proportioned to frame the 650 Twin motor at its core.
inspired by one of the most exciting vintage motorsports, it is also a
completely original creation. Metalworks truly stands out as Crisitian Sosa had
hand fabricated a build for Royal Enfield based on the 650 Twin right from the
frame to body, suspension & paint scheme. The Kamala first premiered at The
One Moto Show in Portland, Oregon USA in February 2020. Interestingly, the
motorcycle won one of the top awards at the show although it wasn’t fully
Kamala, presented in bare metal, lets the materials speak for themselves -
steel, aluminum, brass - each reflects the light differently, glowing in the
countless hours that led to their final forms. The metalworks take the form of
a beautifully narrow swept tank, perfectly formed around a completely bespoke
rigid frame made of chromoly steel.
Inspired by early Royal Enfields, a sinuous girder fork connects the
wheel to the frame at the front, and a beautifully detailed springer seat
arrangement holds the rider perched behind the motor on an almost impossibly
narrow spring. All these parts perfectly
complement the pure metal construction and simple retro forms of the 650 Twin
motor, working together in a composition that is both tough and delicate at the
formed Sosa Metalworks with his brother, Roberto, in 2012. Cristian is a master
of metal and his builds are like free-form jazz, each piece complementing the
others yet completely unique, a sculpture sitting with other sculptures to
create the final motorcycle. Already an experienced metal, worker from years as
lead fabricator at Count’s Kustoms, Sosa has quickly become one of the most
respected names in metal fabrication for cars and motorcycles worldwide - his
builds have been featured in shows from his hometown of Las Vegas to Yokohama,
Japan, and everywhere in between.
