Royal Enfield Dirty Duck
This particular custom Royal Enfield Dirty Duck is built on the Continental GT but is essentially a scrambler that can traverse any kind of terrain. The biggest highlight of the bike is the high mounted snorkel that helps the bike to cross rivers and water crossings without submersing the bike’s engine. The Royal Enfield Dirty Duck rides on knobby dual purpose Continental TKC80 tyres mounted on spoke rims to provide a proper off-road experience.

Speaking on the occasion, Royal Enfield said, “The snorkel is without a doubt the highlight of this motorcycle which has been hand crafted by the extraordinary craftsmen at Harris Performance. Additionally, the airbox has been modified to allow the passage of the straight-through exhaust.” The bike also gets a aluminium skid plate that prevents the bikes engine and under-body from any damage caused due to off-road traversing. The rear sub-frame of the bike is modified in order to incorporate a luggage rack.
