Fuel Custom Builts - "Royal Rally 400" A DAKAR-INSPIRED ROYAL ENFIELD HIMALAYAN

We are happy to introduce a new creation of Fuel Bespoke Motorcycles based on a Royal Enfield Himalayan EFI (2018)

The Himalayan is powered by a single-cylinder 411cc four-stroke engine that makes 24.5 horsepower and 23 ft-lb of torque. Yes, those numbers are pretty low, but we think it can perform pretty good on the Atlas mountains and Morocco desert where speed is not as important as lightness, maneuverability, and simpleness …so we will ride the Himalayan at the Scram Africa 2109 edition. A trip to Africa organized by us where we ride through all kind of terrains, mud, asphalt, sand, etc.. A hard test for the bikes and the riders, a real challenge!

 

From the first time, we saw the Himalayan we thought that inside that bike there was a potential rally bike from the ’80s…It comes to our minds motorcycles like the Yamaha XT 500 or Honda XL prepared for the first editions of the Paris Dakar. Simples, light and functional bikes.

 

The bike has been slightly modified keeping most of the parts from stock. Basically, we have changed the lines and proportions to get a more compact, aggressive and classic look.

 

To achieve the goal we have swapped the front light for a vintage enduro mask, taken off all the protections around the tank and changed the shape of the seat getting a solo seat.

The space where is located the passenger seat we have used it for building a grille (which can be dismounted) for carrying a small bag.

On the left side of the bike, we have “recycled” one of the protectors of the tank into a support for a side case.

Regarding the engine performances, we have installed a Powertronic unit that is able to extract more power and improve responsiveness, refinement, and fuel-efficiency.

We have also added the option of turning on or off the ABS System so you can active depending if you are riding on or off-road.

Some protectors, strong handlebar, USB charge, and a unique speedometer makes the bike simple and functional for a trip like Scram Africa.

We would like to thank the work and enthusiasm of Carles our mechanic and all the suppliers that we usually work.

As you know, we like to build bikes to ride and enjoy them so we are planning to shoot more pics of the bike after the almost 4.000km after the Scram Africa trip. Stay tuned!
