Las Vegas-based Sosa Metalworks is again in news and this time they have custom made a Royal Enfield Continental GT 650.
The donor is Royal Enfield Continental GT 650. The name Kamala suits the bike.
The new machine looks like it’s been stripped that meant it is made with minimal stock components.
However, there is no doubt the bike looks splendid.
With heavy modification, the custom chassis comes close to the OEM chassis. The front suspension is custom made and at the rear, there is no suspension.
It doesn’t get the front brakes however these front brakes are introduced at the rear. Which surely is an innovative way of utilizing the components.
The Chrome paint scheme aligns with the entire package. The fuel tank looks cool plus the original bolt is replaced by a custom bolt.
The single-seat gets the metal surface. What we don’t see on Kamala are multiple components like a tail light, headlight or blinkers and there is no instrument cluster.
Kamala doesn’t look like it gets a donor as Continental GT 650 as we don’t see any DNA that is passed to Kamala.
The GT 650 comes with 648cc twin-cylinder engine that churns 47 hp with a six-speed gearbox and gets multiple other goodies like dual-channel ABS, semi-digital dash, slipper assist clutch.
In India the GT 650 retails at Rs 3.00 Lakhs, exshowroom.
It is always easy to put multiple components on the bike and build a custom but it is not easy when you shed the components and build a custom.
And that is what folks at Sosa Metalworks did. With minimal components, you can build a custom.
