Wide tires make his Royal Enfield look much different

Wide tires make Royal Enfield look heavier, more powerful.
A Royal Enfield Bullet with wide tires is the work of Jattin Gulati, a student at Jagannath Institute of Management Sciences in India.

His creation is featured in the Deccan Chronicle. The website quotes him as explaining:

“I ride a Royal Enfield Bullet Electra bike to my college, which I got specially modified to make it cool. I changed the normal tyres and replaced them with huge tyres that give my bike a very stylish look. The seat and lights are also modified a bit to make them more appealing. I think modified bikes have an advantage because they are unique from other models.”

Obviously, appearance, not handling or performance, is what matters to Jattin. There is no denying that he has radically altered the appearance of his motorcycle.

To my eye, his Royal Enfield looks much heavier and perhaps more powerful. It's not a look that appeals to me, but Jattin will stand out in a crowd.

    Gosh... what a waste of space.
    Never thought such contraptions would ever get a mention here & that too based on a story by some dumb wit.
    You'll see many such wannabe Arnolds calling it a fatboy(harley)style here on Indian roads.
    God save them bullets!
