This Carbon-Clad Royal Enfield GT 650 Is A Bonafide Race-Ready Rocket Bike

Although many motorcycle builders are chiefly concerned with increasing the aesthetic value of the base bike, others get their fix with a much more practical improvement: raw, unadulterated performance. Anthony Partridge of Partridge Design is one such individual because, for him, a custom is only as good as what it can add to the manufacturer’s original effort.

So when Partridge was presented with the opportunity to build an out-and-out track thoroughbred, he himself a field day. The result is the bike you see before you: a 2019 Royal Enfield GT 650 with a complete makeover and a host of high-end parts. For instance, the body kit — based on a scan of the stock frame — is completely carbon fiber. And when it comes to the powertrain, Partridge has bored the GT out to 750 cc’s, with air funneled through foam filters and as well as his own handcrafted exhaust. In order to handle the extra grunt, it’s also been treated to a new suspension, including a custom-fabbed monoshock arrangement at the rear and a set of Öhlins FGR300 forks up front. Top it off with Brembo brakes, Magura touchpoints, and some Motogadget instrumentation, and you have a bike that’s ready to slay some lap times.
