Turn your Royal Enfield 650 Twin into a Bad Winners Custom!

Royal Enfield and custom shop Bad Winners have teamed up to create bolt-on kits for the 650 Continental GT and Interceptor

Bad Winners Motokit

FOR many motorcycle fans, the dream of creating your very custom motorcycle is one that recurs frequently but is rarely achieved. Motorcycle fans who own a Royal Enfield 650cc twin-cylinder model, have just been thrown a lifeline.

R-E has joined forces with Parisian custom house Bad Winners and between the two they might have just created one of the best-looking custom Royal Enfields we’ve ever seen. The Motokit is available for both the Royal Enfield Continental GT and Interceptor models, and is described as plug and play – although a basis of mechanical knowledge is advisable!

At the front of the motorcycle, a Renthal Streetbar has been installed and customised to accommodate six push buttons and an adaptive electronics box to connect to the vehicle's original wiring loom. A discreet and elegant Tiny Speedo Motogadget replaces the original speedometer, as do new Oberon Performance mirrors. In a continued effort to sharpen the look, the front end of the vehicle was fitted with a Koso Thunderbolt headlight to enhance the bespoke headlight shell. The turn signals have been replaced and are cleverly placed in the Bad Winners headlight mounts.

It is, however, the rear of the vehicle that presents the most notable modifications. Without changing the overall geometry of the motorcycle, kit owners are directed to cut the original rear buckle in order to install a new one that will shorten the seat by 5cm. The seat, in imitation leather or real leather (optional), is also handmade by Bad Winners, as are the mudguard and plate holder that are included in the kit. The rear light has also been replaced by an LED system that fits into the extension of the seat.

The mechanical aspect of the vehicle has also been customised thanks to the Performance Kit and the Suspension Kit that optimize comfort and riding precision. The Performance Kit offers a choice of three different exhausts: a pair of S&S slip ons, the S&S 2-in-1 exhaust system or a pair of Spark classic silencers. The air filter and holder have been replaced with an S&S filter. The kit also includes a Dynojet power commander with a pre-configured mapping to optimize the functioning of all the kit’s elements.

Finally, the front and rear suspensions have also been replaced. The front fork is equipped with a YSS upgrade kit, while we offer a choice of three different rear shocks: Bitubo rear shock, YSS Nitro rear shock or YSS Nitro cylinder rear shock.

This Motokit is available in 4 mini-kits: Front kit / Seat kit / Suspension kit / Performance kit. It is sold as a whole kit, but each mini-kit is also available individually. The custom parts that were developed for this project are also sold individually in the Bad Winners store.
