Like all other Royal Enfields, the 650 twins have turned out to be a great base for creative grease monkeys to burn the midnight oil. Where the original machines attempt to bring back the charm of fun and straightforward motorcycling in a retro-styled but sporty package, we came across something which looks rather complex and futuristic. Called the Y2 650, what you see is a design render based on the Royal Enfield 650. It is build-ready and according to Neev Motorcycles, just needs a donor bike.
The Y2 650 retains the standard bike’s motor and runs it in factory-fresh tune, albeit with a custom exhaust system which travels back on both sides. There are many highlights of the design, starting with the front, where fat, gold-finished USD forks are bolted to an alloy wheel which runs 110 section rubber and gets twin Brembo discs for stopping power. We guess it would most probably be a single disc for an actual build, but maybe if you show them the right money, they might give you what you see.
The front headlight is a Triumph Rocket-like twin setup and the sharp extensions of that fuel tank lend a lot of modern aggression to the visuals. A little custom bodywork surrounds the engine, but it’s at the back where things become interesting under that floating saddle which stays on a pillar attached to the main frame and also has space for a tail light. The Y2 650 features a custom swingarm whose extensions on each end are attached to individual springs. The swinging arm accommodates a massive 200/55 section rear tyre which is capped by a custom fender.
The paint finish is custom like the rest of the bike, the fuel tank can hold 15 litres of fuel and the stock motor breathes through a K&N air filter. All illumination bits are LEDs and the Y2 allows ABS to remain functional. Like what you see?
