TNT Motorcycles is a custom Motorcycle workshop and Tattoo studio based in Delhi, India. Started by couple of friends back in 2013, they create handcrafted motorcycles on order basis. Recently, we saw a custom bagger built by TNT motorcycles which impressed us a lot. Dubbed Neelkantha 650, the custom motorcycle based on Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 was seen first during the 2019 Royal Enfield Rider Mania which took place in Goa.
According to its makers, the Neelkantha RE Interceptor 650 bagger is world’s first custom bagger. The bike is inspired by vintage bagger styling and stance and is built in association with Royal Enfield. The custom bike comes with both front and rear air ride suspensions. The ground clearance of the motorcycle can be fiddled with push buttons mounted on the ape handlebar. One can adjust it accordingly ranging from 2.5 to 7.5 inches.
The Neelkantha custom bagger by TNT motorcycles comes with a 24 LED rectangular headlamp mounted on an aluminum CNC girder fork set up. The hand-crafted fuel imitates the tank of Interceptor 650. However, it is a little bigger in proportion in order to complement the theme and flow of a bagger. Saddle bags and the fuel tank both are adorned with buffed and bead rolled aluminum panels to provide the motorcycle a vibrant and glossy look.
Neelkantha custom motorcycle comes with a huge 23” front tyre mounted on a CNC machined billet wheel. It features a custom tail light powered by a 12 led setup integrated in a classy Royal Enfield insignia. Also, there are lots of parts such as front foot boards, rear foot pegs, tail light mount, rear, fuel tank cap and logos which have been CNC machined from 6081 aluminum blocks.
It took TNT motorcycles a period of 3 months to modify the Interceptor 650 into this beautiful custom motorcycle. The cost of the modification is around INR 16 lakhs (approximately $20,000). You can watch other custom motorcycles from TNT Motorcycles on their official website.
