A brand-new scrambler that is based on the Royal Enfield Classic 500 has been modified by Bulleteer Customs. The Bangalore-based business has given it the name “Reckless.” The scrambler was personalised by the company’s head designer as a way to express his unique sense of style. The Reckless has been given more power thanks to a number of modified body pieces and mechanical improvements.
On the Reckless, the front and rear fenders have been reduced in size. The seat has been swapped out for an extended, single-piece model finished in tanned brown leather. The front forks were changed for the upside-down forks from the KTM 390 Duke, and the fuel tank was changed for a larger circular custom tank.
The factory twin-shocks at the rear have been taken out and replaced with a set of gas-charged shock absorbers from Paioli. A Daymaker LED headlamp with a yellow tint has been installed in place of the original one, and it is shielded by a grille modelled after a rugby helmet.
The Reckless has matte black wire spoked rims that measure 18 inches up front and 15 inches down back. Ralco’s 120/80-section front and 140/90-section rear knobby tyres are mounted on these wheels. When we look at the back, we also see a free flow exhaust system and a unique mount for the taillight. The bike has a twin-pod instrument cluster and is painted in a bespoke silver and black colour with white Reckless logo.
The Reckless’ mechanical improvements include a re-bored 540cc engine with new sprockets and a K&N filter. According to Bulleteer Customs, the Reckless has an exclusive power tuning and a substantial power boost thanks to its VM36 Mikuni carburettor. The customizer claims that it is very simple to let the rear end lose while performing power slides and drifts on off-road areas. The business has kept the Reckless’s power and performance specs a secret.
