Behold This Elegant & Aggressive Custom Royal Enfield Interceptor

Customizing a motorcycle is not unlike cooking a meal — anyone can slap together something decent with the raw materials, but it takes the hands of a master to bring out the best of the base ingredients. And this 2019 Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 ‘TXX’ from Thrive Motorcycles is proof of exactly that.

To be fair, the Interceptor 650 was not a bad starting bike. Not only does it have a good foundation, but it’s easy to manipulate without having to worry about messing up the electrics or rerouting any overly-complicated systems. Still, what Thrive has managed here is simply beautiful. Of course, that didn’t happen with a good amount of work — including swapping in a monoshock and swingarm from a Suzuki GSX-R600, replica Ceriani GP38 forks at the front end, upgraded Brembo brakes, a hydraulic clutch, and that eye-catching hand-bent custom stainless steel exhaust alongside aluminum-forged bodywork. Looking at this stunner, there’s no question about it: Thrive Motorcycles are certainly masters of their craft.
