Royal Enfield UK Turbocharged & Ruggedized Its Himalayan ADV Moto

Jul 16, 2020

Over the last year or so, Royal Enfield has increasingly turned to the customs world as a means of marketing its two-wheeled wares, calling on some of the world’s best customs shops to demonstrate its bikes’ conduciveness to modification — not unlike Yamaha’s Yard Built program. And one of the most interesting one-off machines born out of this ongoing initiative wasn’t designed by a leading shop, but rather a group of in-house staff at RE’s UK-based technical center, which has transformed the marque’s Himalayan adventure bike into a turbocharged two-wheeler built to thrive in a post-apocalyptic landscape.

Dubbed the “MJR Roach,” the 411cc thumper’s been treated to a Garrett GT 125 turbo that sings through a custom wrapped single-pipe exhaust ending in a pair of high-mount polished pipes. The stock fork’s been replaced with an inverted MX unit topped off with Renthal Fathers, while out back there’s a Harris Performance-modified stretched single-sided swing-arm (and five-arm wheel) off of a mid-2000s Honda VFR. The stock tank remains in play, though it’s now secured via a set of parachute straps and tie-down buckles.
