Royal Enfield, the world’s oldest motorcycle brand in continuous production,  unveiled a new custom build mode; ‘Surf Racer’ at the fifth edition of the Wheels and Waves festival.

Surf Racer is Royal Enfield’s rendition of the Continental GT cafe racer inspired by the Sun and sand lifestyle.  The Surf Racer is based on Royal Enfield Continental GT, and strips it down to the essence of a cafe racer – the ultimate super light retro racing experience.  At its core is a tuned motor, taking the original 535cc single motor and adding a higher lift cam, machined piston barrels for higher compression and a new inlet manifold.  Air gets sucked in through a Dellorto carb conversion, and spent gasses are fired out the under seat “jet” style tail exhaust.

The Surf Racer has a half fairing floating above 17” performance rims, with upside down forks and an under engine rear shock, turning the rider into a speeding bullet. Simple design coupled with bold graphics express a stylish and artistic approach to racing heritage, emphasized by premium material and high level of quality details, a Sinroja hallmark, that adds more than just a touch of class.  Surf Racer is the perfect machine to race the sunset.
