Royal Enfield Continental GT ‘Grigio’ By KR Customs

With as many custom BMW motorcycles as we see, it’s gotten to the point where we’ve started to take the Bavarian marque for granted. But in other parts of the world, like India, it’s much harder for custom builders to get their hands on the brand’s industry-standard bikes. And that’s why KR Customs thought outside the box, taking inspiration from BMW to build their ‘Grigio’ Royal Enfield Continental GT.

That’s right, while this looks like those signature German bikes, the donor two-wheeler actually hails from Chennai, on the coast of the Bay of Bengal. While the result is flawless, it took quite a bit of work — including swapping in a 1980s BMW airhead tank, masterminding a safe single-point mount for the engine, equipping a rear YSS shock and Royal Enfield classic forks, and finagling the more aggressive seat to house the electronics and an anti-gravity battery — amongst a slew of other tweaks and swaps. You might not know it by looking at the stupendously effortless-looking finished project, but this brat bike is truly a feat of engineering.
