Built in collaboration with Krom Works Jakarta
Royal Enfield, the global leader in mid-size motorcycle segment, unveiled its latest custom motorcycle built on one of Royal Enfield most ambitious motorcycles, the Continental GT 650, at the Kustomfest 2019.
The 30, a classic-modern café racer is a work of Royal Enfield’s collaboration with Krom Works Garage, an Indonesian custom builder, known for its unique inspirations and design, and highly recognized at various international custom events.
Speaking on the occasion, Vimal Sumbly, Business Head APAC, Royal Enfield, said: “The rich custom culture in Indonesia has been inspiring Royal Enfield for years to collaborate with local talent and create new custom builds every year that we have been unveiling at Kustomfest. Royal Enfield’s simple yet evocative motorcycles make them the perfect canvas for customization, to express the builder’s vision and personality. ‘The 30’ is yet another inspiration story, that reflects the never fading glory of café racers in more than seven decades of its existence, which Royal Enfield brought back in form of the Continental GT 650.”
About ‘The 30’ built on Continental GT Cafe Racer
The 30 has been built on Royal Enfield’s newly introduced the Continental GT 650, designed for today’s motorcyclists who see their machines as an extension of themselves, and ride throughout the adventure of life, reminiscent of the Café Racer life that started as standard factory-made motorcycles, before being stripped down, tuned up, and modified to mimic racing bikes.
Inspired by its legendary past, bringing back the nuance of the golden era of café-to-café racing style, from the 60’s, Krom Works Jakarta gives the Continental GT 650 a new custom avatar with the name – ‘The 30’ – a motorcycle that perfectly resonates with the energy of this year’s Kustomfest theme of ‘Back to The Roots,’ while, in taking its name from the age of its builder, looking firmly towards the future.
Built on a modern Café Racer concept, the custom GT retains its minimalist classic character, while combining it with a fresh design vision that links both the old and new. The stripped down retro base is complemented by modern upside-down suspension in the front and a mono-shock rear, with Brembo disks and Tokiko calipers helping the bike to both handle and stop with ease. Finished in chrome plating, matte black and pearl copper colors.
‘The 30’ manifests both the energy of a modern-classic racer and it builder’s journey. It is a statement not just of what has been, but of what can be as well.
