Modified RE Classic 500 gets a unique paint scheme finished in bright blue and pink.
The Royal Enfield team has modified a Classic 500 into a dragster with bright blue and pink paint scheme. Yes, the custom Classic 500 called the Mo ‘Powa’ has bright pink finishing used in the fuel tank and the wheels. The modified bike has great attention to detail and looks stunning indeed.
The Mo ‘Powa’ gets a stretched wheelbase and a lowered stance. Royal Enfield has used the Continental GT’s swingarm for achieving the longer wheelbase and have lowered the front forks with stiffer springs. The handlebar has been flattened and moved further ahead which ensures a more aggressive riding stance. At the rear, instead of the standard steel springs, there are K-Tech shocks. Nonetheless, the most interesting aspects of this alteration have to be the turbocharger and the hand-fabricated custom-built exhaust by Harris Performance. The power and torque numbers aren’t available yet but taking into factor the turbocharger and the custom exhaust, the Mo ‘Powa’ is likely to be faster than the regular Classic 500.
The company has also opted for a carburetor setup instead of fuel injection and has also removed the air box. The fuel gauge has been replaced by a boost gauge and a military-style switch replaces the traditional key. The front wheel remains the same as seen in the stock Classic 500 but the rear unit has been replaced with a new Excel rim which is larger. The stock tyres are replaced by knobby ones for better off-road capability.
