Meet the Thunderbird Rudra 350 from Royal Enfield: The old-school Royal Enfields are being transformed into these specialty bikes by Bulleteer Customs through their diligence and accuracy.
This time, they took a 2003 Royal Enfield Thunderbird 350 and transformed it into “Rudra,” the company’s second Brat Style motorcycle to date. Rudra shares a lot of similarities with cafe racers and bobbers, but it also retains some of its own characteristics.
Rudra’s seat is straight, ribbed, and long enough to accommodate a passenger with the maximum convenience. While the rear employs LED headlights and even thicker 140 mm rubber, the front part receives cluster projector headlights and thick 110 section tyres.
The handle bars are not the typical clip-ons from a sports bike, but rather they are racing style. The spoked and painted Black rims give the car a more lowered appearance. Even the Thunderbird 350 Rudra had a power modified AVL 360 cc engine.
Brat Style bikes are designed with the intention of having few body panels, and unlike cafe racers, they do not receive any chrome treatment. The bike has a classic Harley Davidson motorcycle series appearance because to its peanut-shaped fuel tank.
Here, the engine is even matted, and the motorcycle performs better thanks to the unique exhaust. On the motorcycle, there are no known performance numbers.
