Renowned Bollywood actor Suniel Shetty is a huge fan of customised vehicles, and recently he got delivery of his customised Royal Enfield Motorcycle Machismo 500. The actor posted a video on his social media account thanking the designer Vardenchi for the amazing modification.
In this video, he praises the custom motorcycle's aesthetics, design, and riding quality. He further adds that it has an international appearance but is really Indian. The 'Vintage', as Vardenchi has termed it, is based on an unaltered chassis of the now-discontinued Machismo 500 motorbike to comply with RTO rules.
When it comes to the new design of the customised Machismo 500, it's styled after a classic bobber, equipped with high and broad handlebars and a low single seat. There is a circular LED headlight at the front end, and the front cowl is matte black.
The fuel tank of the motorcycle is matte grey with a noticeable leather strip and the seat is upholstered in black leather and appears to be supported by cosmetic springs. Lower down, the engine is finished in black, and the footpegs are made of aluminium that has been machined. In contrast to the blacked-out engine and chassis, a low-slung exhaust wrapped in heat wrap shines out. To complete the Bobber look, the back fender is cut short.
In addition, the bike has a few emblems and stickers that provide a personal touch, such as 'Anna' and 'Suniel Shetty.' The bespoke bike builder also gave the actor a personalised motorbike helmet and jacket.
Vardenchi is well-known for customising motorbikes for celebrities and exhibiting them at events like the Indian AutoExpo, Royal Enfield Ridermania, and Sunburn Music Festival. They've also made several interesting adaptations over the years, such as the Skeletor, which actor Jackie Shroff owns. They also produce a variety of components and ready-to-install kits that significantly alter the appearance of motorbikes.
