French design studio BAAK produced a custom Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 that inspired by the 50’s aesthetics. Named the Gallinella, in 2019 the Wheels & Waves Festival in Biarritz launched this custom design.
BACK is a French innovative factory for bikes and accessories specializing in Triumph, Moto Guzzi, Royal Enfield, and BMW bikes design. So, it has partnered with the Chennai-based motorcycle manufacturer for the custom Interceptor 650 prototype.
The concept behind the Gallinella’s creation was to create a design. So, that it diverts away from the latest stripping-down phenomenon in the world of custom motorcycles.
The Gallinella has exquisitely handcrafted parts. Which requires exceptional skills in manufacturing. The aluminum bathtub rear fairing or rear cowl is handcrafted.
So, it is a masterpiece that offers a very special look for this custom Royal Enfield Interceptor 650. It is also, beyond doubt. One of Gallinella’s most appealing qualities.
BANK has used various custom parts to give the looks of the Gallinella 50s. A classic round headlight. With a built-in speedometer is available. So, that means the Interceptor 650’s stock dual-pod semi-digital instrument cluster has scrapped.
In this build, the black fork gaiters so made of leather. And there is the front fender made of stainless steel.
We entertained by the Gallinella custom handlebar. It is a single-piece, aluminum fixed tubular style handlebar. The kind of bent towards the driver ends gives a more balanced riding stance. It’s also contributing to the 50s style of the bike.
The handlebar has custom controls with 3-buttons. The smooth leather seat contributes to both the warmth and motorcycle styling. The custom subframe and the small taillight complete the aesthetic charm of the old school.
The Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 custom engine so kept on reserve. A parallel-twin unit of 648 cc which produces 47 PS and 52 Nm of torque. And connected to a gearbox of 6 speeds.
However, the cumbersome stock exhausts replaced by small and lightweight aluminum units by BAAK. BACK used a very classic and still stylish color scheme to give the Gallinella the final touches.
