For India’s fans of modified motorcycles, Haldankar Customs is back with another unique offering. This time, they modified a Royal Enfield Classic 500 to create Pratap, a premium-sized cruiser with a body inspired by the Indian Roadmaster and an enormous stance.
Due to these admirable upgrades, the motorcycle now weights significantly more, and the 499cc RE engine will proudly display its torque-rich nature. Haldankar Customs has carefully selected the fate of this motorcycle with these new amenities after tearing off every factory panel from the Classic 500 frame. The tear-drop gasoline tank is highlighted by the airbrushed paint, which is gorgeous from every perspective.
Along with a unique seat, a sizable fuel tank, and a tinted front visor, this vehicle has an extra-wide stance. Pratap has spoked wheels, three headlights, a covered front suspension, a large handlebar, and standard rearview mirrors. Dual-purpose tyres are used to maintain the motorcycle’s equally remarkable footprint.
It was a brilliant concept to use a unique swing arm to acquire the ideal seat arrangement and an expanded wheelbase. For complete pillion comfort, the backrest and two armrests are included in the rear seat. Fixed saddlebags add the necessary practicality, while a twin exhaust configuration gives the motorcycle’s overall design a luxury vibe.
For enhanced safety, each bag has its own warning light. For absolute body balance, Haldankar Customs selected a superbike class rear tyre. The amount of total luggage room offered by Pratap has not been specified.
For a voyage filled with entertainment, the rider now has a fully digital instrument dashboard and fairing-mounted speakers. Additionally capable of supporting navigation, the system would give Pratap overall more functionality. The motorcycle’s original 499cc engine produces 41.3 Nm of torque and 27.2 BHP. The engine continues to be paired with a 5-speed transmission.
