Royal Enfield showcased six custom-made motorcycles at EICMA 2019 along with the Himalayan with three new colour options. The custom motorcycles were Nought Tea v1.0, Nought Tea v2.0, Two Smoking Barrels (TSB), MJR Roach, Gallinella and the Twins FT. The Twins FT is a custom-built flat track motorcycle by Royal Enfield, built in collaboration with Harris Performance and inputs from the Flat track racers.
We take a closer look at the newly imagined Twins FT in the official pictures by the manufacturer.
The chaps at Harris performance and Royal Enfield have derived an all-new motorcycle using minimum mechanical parts from the Interceptor 650
It uses a 650cc parallel-twin engine but has a bigger bore than the standard
The engine is housed in a bespoke twin-down pipe cradle chassis made out of brazed steel tube
The exhaust system is from S&S that gets custom fabrication to enhance performance as well as the looks
The telescopic forks in the front have been developed by Harris Performance
The flat tracker uses multi-spoke RSD rims
The RSD rims are shod with Dunlops flat track tyres
The braking unit - callipers and master cylinder are manufactured by Brembo
The foot pegs are custom-built to offer more grip to the rider
The motorcycle gets a custom swingarm with a monoshock absorber in the rear
The final drive ratio has been tweaked to suit the flat track
