When Royal Enfields have aA�Mad Max streak to them

ROYAL Enfield is rapidly sheddingA�the Bullet tag (the bike thata��sA�still the most iconic Enfield)A�now that the Continental GTA�and the Himalayan are part ofA�the range. In another departureA�from the tradition, REa��s entriesA�to a French motorcycling/surfing
event, Wheels and Waves,have been inspired by MadA�Max. While not as spartanas the Yamahas and GasA�Gas motorbikes used inA�the film, the off-roadA�tyres, bolted on handbuiltA�componentsA�and paint jobs on aA�Continental GT andA�a Classic 500 strongly remind us of The Wasteland.
The custom jobs are the work ofA�UK-based motorcycle parts manufacturer,A�Harris Performance,A�now owned by RE.

Amphibian ambitionsA�
Harris Performance modified aA�Continental GT to make it a waterwadingA�motorcycle and named it Dirty Duck. It can ford through shallow streams, thanks to waterfriendly modifications like a snorkel, a sump guard under the chassis and a rerouted exhaust. The cafe racer-like round headlamp has been replaced with twin projector lights placed inside a metallic panel bolted on to the front which also houses a GoPro. Instead of flat handlebars, the custom gets raised bars.

Drag queen
Th e Moa�� Pow a a�� i s Harr i sA�Performancea��s take on howA�a Classic 500 would be preparedA�for the drag races.A�The pink and blue motorbike
is equipped with aA�turbocharger. Other majorA�mods are a hand-bui l tA�exhaust, a rear suspensionA�adjusted to accommodateA�the lower seat position andA�an orange ignition switchA�along with repositionableA�LED tail lamps.
