Dual exhausts look tough on Royal Enfield single

A custom Royal Enfield chopper for sale in India sports dual exhausts. These sprout from what the seller describes as a "stock" Royal Enfield Lightning 535cc engine.

It's a cool looking motorcycle and the twin mufflers must cause some double takes from those who see it. But I presume the top muffler, which appears to reach the motor just under the carburetor, has no actual function.

"What's it for?" is probably a dumb question when asked about a custom chopper. It's there because the owner likes it and no further explanation is necessary.

But it is fun to speculate about possible uses it might serve. I once suggested that Royal Enfields should mount a small solid fuel rocket booster in this position, for one-time use in any impromptu drag race.

That's probably not very practical. So what could be made of this silent silencer?

How about a custom luggage compartment for your pool cue or fishing rod?

Any other suggestions? Make a comment here.

The motorcycle is for sale in Noida, Uttar Pradesh. Asking price is 69,000 rupees, about $1,600, according to one on-line converter.

    Apologies but this bike does ZERO for me. Why pretend that it's a twin when it's not? What's to be gained by such foolishness?
