Royal Enfield Continental GT 650 basks in the laurels of being on the lightest and fastest motorcycle powered by the 650cc engine. While it carries a classic masculine charm, the motorcycle just got better, courtesy of Bandit9, the acclaimed custom motorcycle shop based in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. This being the latest collaboration between Royal Enfield and Bandit9 as they came together before too, for some stunning creations – the result this time around is “Jaeger”. A hand-crafted custom kit for the motorcycle virtually transforms it from a classic ride to one that has landed straight from an action movie scene – an alien movie to be subtle!
This year is the tenth anniversary of the custom motorcycle shop, and the captain aboard the ship, Daryl Villanueva choose Royal Enfield Continental GT 650 as the canvas to mark this special occasion for passionate motorheads. The ultra-limited edition bolt-on kit for the motorcycle handcrafted from surgical-grade stainless steel comprises half-fairing, and the neo-retro tank flowing low into the front tail cowl. The same steel is used to craft the monobloc mirrors, switchgear, and levers to lend a very unibody kind of feel to the machine. The whole character of the motorcycle is transformed with the bespoke swing-arm extension, custom build flowing one-into-one exhaust having slash-cut pipes, clip-on handlebars with alloy grips, and a brand new set of sawtooth-tread tires.
Other than these major changes, the motorcycle also gets custom LED lighting on the front and back, an all-weather suede seat, and a unique speedometer. While the visual modifications make the bike look dramatic to be modest, the custom shop also managed to shave-off 35lbs of the Continental 650 GT’s weight in the process. If you thought getting your hands on this one would be easy, it’ll be limited to only nine special edition units. Jaeger motorcycle will come as a Jaeger kit a la carte or completed finished motorcycle.
