2023 Royal Enfield Continental GT 650 “The Locust”

PRICE: $9,995

Born on a dark and stormy night, the Locust has arrived just in time for Halloween!

Sick and twisted, this total Franken-bike was conceived on a dark night after too many cartoon doodles, too many espressos, and too much time digging through the parts department after hours.  A short, loud, brazen cross of a cafe’ racer, brat, scrambler, and supermoto, this Continental GT wears the scars of customization well.

The mad scientists in charge of this creation will only cackle and howl when I speak to them, so I’m gonna go off of I can see was done.  If I find Igor, he’ll probably have a list of actual parts if you’re into that sort of thing.

The abbreviated stance is compliments of MK Design’s shorty rear loop.  MKD also contributed to the grey side covers.  The beautifully stitched shorty seat from BonVent Motorbikes caps the machine and adds a level of comfort your master would never let you have.  YSS springers in the back prop up with rear for an exaggerated ready to strike appearance while also enhancing the handling of this monster.  Genuine RE alloy wheels are skinned with some excellent meats from our friends at Michelin, while the 7″ Lucas-type headlight is reigned in by Motone’s super gnarly Giger short-reach fork ears.  And speaking of gnarly AND Motone, the demonic chaps from the UK also sprinkled on that cast El Dorado tail light, Pico LED turn signal indicators, as well as various bracketry and wiring.  Our friends at RideTek wanted to get their sticky mitts involved so we threw a set of their excellent and grippy silicone tank pads on.  Of course, that swoopy Diabolus exhaust system cannot go unmentioned if we want to escape a lashing from K-Speed.

Like maggots under the skin of a zombie, there are plenty more hidden treasures such as the 2″ Daytona speedometer, abbreviated switch gear, shorty front fender that I have failed to mention.   I could go on and on, but I hear the children of the night calling and I must obey their command.

Do you want to have a howling good time?  Obey the urge…to Ride Pure!
