In Italy, the Royal Enfield name is synonymous with the dealer Royal McQueen. The Bologna shop sells nothing but India’s finest, and it also operates a thriving custom workshop. Royal McQueen’s latest creation is the ‘SuperNaag’—an affordable reworking of the Electra 500 that’s designed to evoke the charm of 70s enduro motorcycles. And in a strange way, it works.
SuperNaag (a loose translation of ‘King Cobra’, apparently) is fitted with many custom parts: only the lights and the exhaust pipe are off-the-shelf accessories. Royal McQueen’s very eccentric proprietor Andrea Fontana will build each €10,800 (US$13,800) SuperNaag, and you get to choose the color and detailing.
The finishing touch? As with all specials built by Fontana, the SuperNaag displays Built With Aloha on the tank. [Via Sideblog.]
