The Royal Enfield Hidalgo is a brand-new offering from Bulleteer Customs under the Highway 540 Series. This clever alteration from a motorcycle designed for the street to a conventional cruiser is definitely commendable. Starting with the gasoline tank, a flowing unit with teardrop-inspired styling replaces the standard Royal Enfield vintage tank.
There is no visible space between the seat and the end of the gasoline tank due to the placement’s precision. With matte black serving as the background colour and glossy black lines slicing through the body, a dark motif is evident everywhere. The seat is beautifully stuffed in the pillion area without a grip bar and is ideally built for placing lower than normal at the front.
The rear part can be customised with an extra wide fender, a stylish tail light, and turn indicators mounted on the suspension. Black alloy wheels with wider-than-normal tyres with thick sidewalls are offered for both ends, giving them an impressive stance. Since the distance between the front seat and the wheel has widened in Hidalgo, the motorcycle’s wheelbase appears to have been adjusted.
The black custom-finished covers for the front forks now match the headlamp, which is an LED circular unit with two projectors. The handlebar appears to be from a Thunderbird 350, and the donor bike’s dual disc brakes suggest that it is a Royal Enfield Thunderbird.
A dual outlet exhaust system with chrome ends that perfectly match the body colour has been used by Bulleteer Customs. Due to the restricted amount of designs that are suitable for such a wide rear tyre, the front and rear alloy wheel designs are distinct.
In India, certain Classic models (special shades) also have a black engine compartment in addition to Royal Enfield’s Thunderbird series’ regular black engine finish. Although it is not yet known whether this model belongs to the 350cc or 500cc family, one can infer that both bikes might be easily converted to the Hidalgo.
