Royal Enfield unveiled two new
custom builds at the fifth edition of the
Wheels and Waves festival, Europe's landmark surfing and motorcycling
event held in June 2017 in Biarritz, France. Royal Enfield participated in this
event for the third time, displaying two exclusive renditions – Surf Racer and
Gentleman Brat, along with its range of motorcycles and gear. The Wheels and
Waves festival is a melting pot for all things around motorcycles, hipsters,
customs, community, surf and sand, with a gathering of over 15000 visitors and
participants over five days and four locations. Over the years the festival has
become a bridge that connects the multifaceted world of motorcycles with skate
and surf culture, through philosophy, music and style.
At Wheels and Waves 2017, Royal Enfield
unveiled its latest custom builds developed in collaboration with Sinroja
Motorcycles, based in Leicester, UK.
Surf Racer is Royal Enfield’s rendition of the
Continental GT cafe racer inspired by the Sun and sand lifestyle. The Surf Racer is based on Royal Enfield
Continental GT, and strips it down to the essence of a cafe racer - the
ultimate super light retro racing experience.
At its core is a tuned motor, taking the original 535cc single motor and
adding a higher lift cam, machined piston barrels for higher compression and a
new inlet manifold. Air gets sucked in
through a Dellorto carb conversion, and spent gasses are fired out the under
seat “jet” style tail exhaust. The Surf
Racer has a half fairing floating above 17” performance rims, with upside down
forks and an under engine rear shock, turning the rider into a speeding bullet.
Simple design coupled with bold graphics express a stylish and artistic
approach to racing heritage, emphasized by premium material and high level of
quality details, a Sinroja hallmark, that adds more than just a touch of
class. Surf Racer is the perfect machine
to race the sunset.
Gentleman Brat is a custom
based motorcycle on Royal Enfield’s latest non-extreme adventure tourer, the
Himalayan, which further brings out its idea - it’s not about performance, it’s
about fun. A custom motorcycle equally at home, romping along the surf line and
parked up in front of a classy beach side restaurant. The Himalayan is an
adventure tool, and the Gentleman’s Brat keeps that spirit of going anywhere -
stripping away all the extras to reveal a tight, compact and irreverent machine. It has a 16” rims with fat white wall tyres
that add a bit of muscular appeal, while a cream over grey paint scheme blends
the durable with the refined. An upgraded suspension adds capability, while its
impeccable detailing, premium leather, and machined aluminium finishes that
marks it as a luxury vehicle...with a sense of humour.
