Made like a gun.

Indian enthusiast Abhinav Bhatt has managed to squeeze some serious performance out of his Royal Enfield 650 Interceptor.

After a year-long build, Abhinav’s Enfield is capable of accelerating to 100km/h in around five seconds.

He changed out the standard damper-rod forks for an upside-down setup, and he had new wheels made to accommodate better tyre options.

Abhinav also fitted an aftermarket ECU with a custom fuel map and a two-into-one exhaust system. He also upgraded the intake for better air flow and increased the size of the countershaft sprocket by one tooth.

He claims to have stripped 20 kilograms off the bike, which weighs 202kg from factory, and improved outputs by 5kW to around 39kW.

In this video you can see Abhinav explain the build process, before going for a spritely jaunt along a foggy highway in India.

In standard form, the Royal Enfield 650 Interceptor produces 35kW at 7100rpm and 52Nm at 4000rpm from its 648cc parallel twin.

It is priced from $9790 rideaway in Australia, and is available in six colour schemes.
