Royal Enfield showcased two custom motorcycles christened as Mo' Powa' and the Dirty Duck at the fourth instalment of the Wheels and Waves festival held between June 8 and 12, 2016 in Biarritz, France. The first ever factory custom models from Royal Enfield are based on the Classic 500 and the Continental GT motorcycles, respectively.
The Mo' Powa' is a dragster inspired custom, while the Dirty Duck is a tribute to off-road machines. Royal Enfield says the Mo' Powa' is the companies' rendition of a Dragster-meets-Mad Max motorcycle. The biggest addition to the powertrain in this custom model is turbo-charging. The custom-built exhaust has been fabricated by the Harris Performance. The Mo' Powa' features a swingarm borrowed from the Continental GT for increased wheelbase. It also features lowered stance thanks to the lowered front forks with a stiffer springs. Additionally, the custom motorcycle comes with K-Tech rear shocks and flattened handlebar.
On the other hand, with the Dirty Duck Royal Enfield is the two-wheeled iteration of the off-road machines such as the Jeep or Land Rover Defender. The highlight of the Dirty duck is the snorkel sticking out the top. The snorkel has been designed and developed by the Harris Performance. The Dirty Duck also features chunky Continental TKC80 tyres on spoke rims that lends off-roader look. It also has an aluminium sump-guard for under body protection.
There is no official word on the possibility of production of the Mo' Powa' and the Dirty Duck. Royal Enfield may offer these add-ons custom kits to personalise bikes to individual tastes.
