Royal Enfield showcased its entire range of motorcycles at the fourth installment of the Wheels and Waves festival held between June 8-12, 2016 in Biarritz, France. Also exhibited at the festival were the company’s first factory-built custom motorcycles – Mo’ Powa’ and Dirty Duck.
The Mo’ Powa’ is based on Royal Enfield’s Classic 500, which the company claims is its rendition of ‘a Dragster-meets-Mad Max motorcycle’. The most significant change that the Mo’ Powa’ gets over the standard motorcycle is the turbocharged engine. The motorcycle’s custom-built exhaust has been fabricated by hand at Harris Performance.
The second custom motorcycle, the Dirty Duck, is based on the Continental GT. Inspired by off-road vehicles like the Land Rover Defender and Jeep, the Dirty Duck gets the addition of a snorkel that has too been handcrafted at Harris Performance. The motorcycle also features a fuel tank that has been naturally rusted to give it more of an off-roader look.
Additionally, a historic collection of the finest art from Royal Enfield’s rich motorcycling heritage was also on display at the Wheels and Waves festival.
