Royal Enfield 650cc LockStock Dragster – The 650cc twins from the Royal Enfield are the two most anticipated bikes all over the market which are supposed to be launched sometime soon. To everyone’s utter surprise, Royal Enfield has unveiled a purpose-built dragster which is indeed based on the 650cc twins.
The dragster was launched at Bike Shed Motorcycle Club in London amidst some event and goes by the name LockStock. The high-performance drag bike, LockStock have officially inherited its components from the Continental GT 650 in terms of its low stance design, engine and the fuel tank. Besides that, there aren’t many similarities with the twins.
The minimal bodywork and larger exhausts have actually made the LockStock to give a beast look. It exhibits a carbon fiber front look that forges a LED ring in it. The drop-bar type handlebars and a single seat have given the dragster a gallant look. This architecture actually allows the bike to have a low drag coefficient by diminishing the air resistance.
You can see the mudguard extending forward to reach the tyres. The customized exhaust helps in quick dissipation and the extended wheelbase is powerful enough to streamline the bike eventually. Six-spoke alloy wheels, an upside-down fork from Ohlins are some of the major upgrades.
The naked rear wheel justifies no rear suspension. It gets disc brakes at both ends with the front having a four-piston Brembo calliper and the rear exhibiting a conventional disc brake setup. The LockStock features a NOS tank just behind the engine that is capable of giving it an extra boost in terms of performance.
As the engine is borrowed from Continental GT 650, the custom-made dragster LockStock will be powered by 648cc, fuel-injected, parallel-twin engine, which in its stock form produces a maximum of 47.65 PS @ 7100 rpm and a peak torque of 52 Nm @ 4000 rpm.
The engine will be mated to a 6-speed gearbox. The absolute beast stance with a powerful engine and the design have actually made the enthusiasts contended with the launch of LockStock and much more anticipated for the 650cc twins.
