Royal Enfield has unveiled three of its latest custom build motorcycles at the seventh edition of Wheels and Waves. These motorcycles have been developed for the very first time on its yet to be launched twin-cylinder platform. The three motorcycles are ‘Lock Stock’ based on Continental GT 650 Twin, ‘Rohini’ based on Continental GT 650 Twin and The ‘Interceptor’ based on Interceptor 650. The 'Lock Stock' has been developed by Royal Enfield, while the ‘Rohini’ and the ‘Interceptor’ have been created by Young Guns Speed Shop and Old Empire Motorcycles, respectively.

Wheels and Waves, being one of the most anticipated events in the custom motorcycling scene, is held every year in the city of Biarritz, France. Apart from the ‘Lock Stock’ a 865 cc drag bike - designed and developed by the brand itself, Royal Enfield has also collaborated for the first time with Young Guns Speed Shop, a custom house based in Switzerland and Old Empire Motorcycles based in UK, to work on two unique concepts with the Continental GT 650 and Interceptor 650 as base. Speaking of the 'Lock Stock', it is a factory built speed-machine that brings out the true potential and capability of the all-new 650 Twin motor. It is the first custom motorcycle by Royal Enfield in many years to have ‘two smoking barrels’.

The bespoke brazed steel drag racing frame has been made in partnership with legendary chassis masters - Harris Performance, while USA’s S&S Cycles, with their years of engine building experience, were brought in to unravel the true capability of the 650 motor, using it as a base and spinning it into a 865 cc engine with a nitrous injection. Royal Enfield Lock Stock flaunts ‘Dazzle Camo’ paint with a carbon-fibre body and leather work. Coming to the 'Rohini', it Young Guns Customs’ interpretation of Royal Enfield with an inspiration drawn from India’s space program and it’s Rohini satellites. The build was conceptualised and designed to add a youthful desirability to the British nostalgia which already existed in the Continental GT 650.

Young Guns Customs' 'Rohini' features stock paint job, a super slim and curvaceous fairing and monocoque seat/tail unit. Also, while the concept is pure cafe racer, the build has a hidden surprise; in the dark, a layer of reflective paint transforms the classic lines into a riot of Razzle Dazzle light, blurring the lines between being beautifully retro and wildly modern. Last but not the least, the Old Empire Motorcycles ‘Interceptor’ gets rid of everything that wasn't completely necessary and hiding the essentials. A deep metallic red paint job matched to an Oxblood leather and Alcantara seat makes it even more special. The lowered stance and blacked motor hint at an aggression hiding under the refined exterior. The motorcycle no longer has a stock lock barrel and key, instead integrating a keyless ignition into matching riding gloves.
