Godzilla: a Royal Enfield with Diavel aspirations

NO, YOUR eyes do not deceive, that there is a Royal Enfield Thunderbird, modified heavily in the looks department to ape Ducati’s monstrous Diavel.

Neev Motorcycles based in Delhi modified an Enfield Thunderbird 500 and christened it Godzilla. The custom shop has made lots of changes and most of the parts are handmade to achieve the look.

The front has new LED headlamps, stock forks have been replaced by custom units made from aluminium which are longer than the originals. The bar is a single piece which is wider to give a  touring riding position. The design of fuel tank is unique as it’s very long compared to standard number.

Neev has also speciall- designed engine covers at the side and front and the chain drives on the right side  of left like the stock bike.

The sprocket and swing-arm are custom made to go with the changes they made. A K&N air-filter is placed on the side and the rear gets small LED strips as a tail-light.

They haven’t made any changes for the engine which is the stock 499cc engine 27.2bhp and is mated to the same five-speed gearbox.

Godzuki, the next project, will be a Yamaha TY80 with a Gilera dustbin fairing and lights from a TR7...
