Once a while, we come across stunning examples of innovation from bike enthusiasts. Bike modifications are a raging hit in the motorcycle communities across the globe. Today, we bring for you something different rather than the usual from the state of Punjab. Two young lads in Jalandhar have developed a motorcycle from materials borrowed from Maruti 800, Bajaj Pulsar, Royal Enfield Classic among other bikes. An innovative project in itself, the two youth came up with a large cruiser. Davinder Singh and Harsimran Singh are colleges going students with Davinder studying in St Soldier’s group of institutions and Harsimran is doing B-Tech in Aeronautical Engineering.
The project commenced on the 1st of July and was completed by the 8th August 2020. The conception, components sourcing and manufacturing capacities were all planned before the project was initiation, as they also rented a workspace for Rs 35,000. The duo have nicknamed the bike “Dracula” giving it an interesting flavour. The motorcycle is powered by a Maruti 800 engine while Tata Ace contributed its radiator and cooling fan. Other components were taken from a number of Maruti Suzuki vehicles and Mahindra Bolero. Bajaj Pulsar contributed to the bike’s chassis while other bikes supplied alternate components. That said, the rear mudguard looks to be borrowed from a KTM 200 Duke.
Talking about the power of the two-wheeler, the Dracula motorcycle can reach a top speed of 200 kmph. The reason behind the bike’s performance could be attributed to lighter parts which are said to be sourced from different racing bikes. This motorcycle is powered by a 796cc three-cylinder petrol engine. The model comes with a BS4 compliant engine, as it belts out 37 bhp of maximum power output with 53 Nm of peak torque. The powerplant is mated to a 4-speed transmission.
According to the youths, the fuel mileage lies around 20 kmpl, a standard figure observed in premium motorcycles. This bike cannot be registered and run on Indian roads as this type of modification of a two-wheeler is against the law.
