Every once in a while, you come across people who can motivate you, with the sheer passion that they have for what they do. The heights to which they go, to be the best and the strict quality principles that they adhere to, result is machines that not just break rules, but define new one’s!
Tejinder Pal Singh and his friend Arjun Raina have created with their own bare hands, or should I say their heart’s, what could be one the most unique RD’s out there. Each part painstakingly chosen keeping only one word in mind ‘quality’. Let me make it simple, if you are an ardent RD owner, and still if you cant figure out what parts are used looking at the photographs, here is a surprise. Most of it is custom made along with tailored parts sourced from other motorcycles. For example the front forks are from the Comet, the disc is from a Ducati, the chassis is restructured from after the engine stock cradle, FZ tank panels with custom tank and alloys, mono-shock from the Unicorn set up for the bikes weight. The rarest part on the bike would be the TZ350 magnet cover that had to be brought down from UK.
The bike in its current trim produces about 65 horses, and if you think the bike is complete, you cant be further away from the truth. Idea’s and parts are still flying in and this work of art is going to get a whole lot more work done on it. After the final setup the engine should make a whopping about 80 horses.
In a nut shell here is a list of the work that has gone into the RD:
Hella Lights from Germany
