Thrive Moto Gives Royal Enfield’s Himalayan A Rugged Dakar-Themed Redux

Apr 20, 2021

Category: Rides

First launched in 2016, Royal Enfield’s Himalayan represented a back-to-basics take on a modern adventure bike, forgoing the usual host of fancy tech, rider aids, and big-bore multi-cylinder engine in favor of an air-cooled 411cc thumper wrapped in a split cradle chassis. And on top of making for a rather bullet-proof adventure bike, the rudimentary design also makes the Himalayan incredibly conducive to customization, as evidenced by the latest one-off work from Jakarta-based customs shop, Thrive Motorcycle.

Dubbed the “Gemini T-14,” the bespoke Enfield was built for moto-focused Youtuber, Den Dimas around his existing 2019 specimen without any alterations to the half-duplex frame. The Gemini sports all-new fiberglass bodywork in the form of a Dakar-style navigation tower and windscreen and a custom set of tank covers mated together via a set of rally-inspired fairings. Out back, there’s a single-piece tail and side-covers unit capped off with a single-seat saddle. Finishing touches include a custom aluminum tail-tidy, new bars, a stainless steel Thrive exhaust, Pirelli Scorpion MT60 tires, a Kriega dry bag, a new headlight set in a custom shielded bracket, rubber ducky burger valve stem caps, a pair of PIAA auxiliary lights, an Öhlins mono-shock, and a custom paint job inspired by the Rothmans livery on the 1984 Porsche 911SC RS Group B rally car.
