RE Thunderbird 350 Spartan: Bulleteer Customs are back with a mouth-watering machine that they have proudly named Spartan in India. Based on Royal Enfield Thunderbird 350, Spartan is bold, butch and beautiful from any possible angle. Bodywork used here focuses more on simplicity and less on flaunting through extra pieces of metal.
Front and rear gets wide fenders to house these extra fat tyres on the Spartan. Along with them, only the fuel tank shares that same color code and rest all is left in chrome-black combination. Thunderbird Spartan uses a Harley inspired theme as Fat Boy specific front suspension cover looks quite natural here.
All this looks in sync because of those huge tyres. They are mounted on smaller 16-inch rims to achieve almost similar ride height with these extra fat tyres. Handlebar is partially inspired from ape hanger unit on Harley bikes. Buyers will get a custom built chrome exhaust unit for exclusive sounding Spartan on Indian roads.
Seat from the Thunderbird was replaced with this thin single unit. Front headlight used by Bulleteer Customs is mounted on a body coloured round panel and features LED lighting for effective night specific riding. Front and rear indicators are missing while rear light is now full LED.
Royal Enfield Thunderbird 350 is a powerful machine with 346cc, single cylinder engine producing 19.8 BHP at 5250 rpm and 28 Nm of torque at just 4000 rpm. The engine comes mated to a 5-speed gearbox. Riders can expect relaxed cruising at around 90 kmph all day.
In case of Spartan, riders don’t get that huge fuel tank benefit and thus, city riding is effective for such huge modified bike. Thunderbird 350 can be bought for INR 1.48 lakh while pricing for Spartan stays undisclosed. Suspension setup stays stock and chrome loaded on the Spartan.
