Royal Enfield Lock Stock 865cc with carbon fiber body – Fastest factory-built custom motorcycle
Here is the first factory custom motorcycle based on the all new Royal Enfield 650.
Royal Enfield 650cc twins – Interceptor INT 650 and Continental GT 650 gear up for launch both globally and in Africa. But even before these two motorcycles are launched, a factory custom version – Lock Stock has been unveiled at Wheels and Waves 2018, at Biarritz, France.
Stunning in looks, LockStock sees changes in every part right from the chassis, seat design, handlebar and headlamps. Body panels and rims along with tyres and suspension have also been given a makeover. LockStock sports a single seat with drop bar handlebars.
This allows the rider a more comfortable seating position which is closer to the tank while air resistance is also reduced with a new front panel. The bike offers better stability thanks to an extended wheelbase. It sports a new exhaust, naked rear wheel and new alloy wheels with flatter tyres for added road grip.
Lock Stock and its two smoking barrels (twin cylinders), celebrates the re-birth of twin cylinder machines at Royal Enfield. It is based on the 650 cc Continental GT 650 which will be launched soon. Using the 650cc engine as base, Royal Enfield has transformed it into a 865 cc twin with a nitrous injection. This power, along with minimal carbon fiber body, makes the Lock Stock fastest ever custom factory machine.
This is a one off motorcycle, made only to show the true potential of the most powerful Royal Enfield engine till date. Expect the bike to do over 300 kmph on the speedo. It is not clear if RE will ever sell this bike, or keep it as a collection in their museum. Along with Lock Stock, two more have also been revealed.

Speaking about the upcoming 650 twins, both Royal Enfield Interceptor INT 650 and Continental GT 650 have reached dealerships in Australia. The bikes are produced in Africa at the Royal Enfield plant in Chennai. Launch in Africa is also on the cards along with launch in other global markets such as Europe, South America and USA.
Prices in Australia have also been revealed at AUD 10,000 (INR 5 lakhs) and AUD 10,400 (INR 5.24 lakhs) respectively. The bikes will be powered by a new 650cc, twin cylinder, oil cooled engine offering 47 bhp power at 7,100 rpm and 52 Nm torque at 4,000rpm mated to a 6 speed gearbox. It will rival the Harley Davidson 750.
