[] - Custom Eye Candy: A Nitrous Royal Enfield Dragster

Click here for full story...

Here at wBW, we don’t play favorites – at least, not unless it’s a day where the bike build is particularly kickass.*

Today is one of those days.

Everybody, meet the ‘Pegasus l’Étalon Noir’ (Pegasus The Black Stallion) – a stupidly spiffy machine based on the Royal Enfield Continental GT 650, with work completed by none other than the designers and engineers at our favorite Parisian bike shop, Bad Winners.*

Top Speed tells us that it’s thanks to the pandemic that this particular project was almost scrapped back in 2020 – and now, with the build restarted a year later and the end product officially debuted, we’re glad the Pegasus made it.*

We say the bike is based on the Continental GT because there’s virtually nothing left of the original bike. To drag this beastie out, Bad Winners added a “3D printed fuel tank cover, front number board, and tail section made entirely from carbon fiber.”

Naturally, a stock 648cc engine wouldn’t do for a drag race; BW added a big bore kit from S&S Cycles, ramping up the juice potential to 865cc and tricking the bike out with reworked cylinder heads, upgraded camshaft, reinforced clutch, and a two-into-one free-flow exhaust.*

Obviously, if you’re looking to blast off a few wigs, weight control is a consideration.* Top Speed tells us that “the redesigned fuel tank only holds half a gallon, enough juice for just a single pass.”

Add to this the chopped subframe, fabricated mount (for the new Öhlins mono-shock), and stretched swingarm (getting the pegs as far back as possible) to complement the super-low clip-on handlebar, and you’ve got yourself a pretty one-trick pony for the collection.*

Oh, we almost forgot – the Pegasus drinks Nitrous.*

“The crown jewel is the insane Nitrous System which makes this more than capable of starring in the Fast & Furious movies (enough poke to give the cars a run for their money, anyway),” states the report.*

I personally can’t wait to see the stallion in action – what do you think?

Comment down below, enjoy the media archive attached to this article for a closer gander at the ‘Pegasus l’Étalon Noir,’ and as ever – stay safe on the twisties.*
