A few days ago, we featured one of Wrench Kings’ most notable exploits, namely their Suzuki GS450-based creature. Long story short, this glorious two-wheeled machine guarantees to have just about any self-respecting gearhead awestruck in the truest sense of the word.

Sure enough, I couldn’t resist the urge to feature another remarkable entity for too long. As such, we’ll be proceeding with a closer analysis of WK’s seriously rugged Royal Enfield Himalayan – a menacing venture completed in 2019. Honestly, this sexy beast looks downright malicious!

The donor is powered by an air-cooled SOHC single-cylinder mill, with a displacement of 411cc. At 6,500 rpm, the engine is fully capable of delivering up to 24 hp, while a torque output of around 24 pound-feet (32 Nm) will be achieved between 4,000 and 4,500 revs. This force is passed on to a chain final drive via a five-speed gearbox.

To make their bespoke project come to life, Wrench Kings teamed up with Gannet Design’s Ulfert Janssen. The latter is responsible for the bike’s outlandish, yet oddly intriguing design language. On the other hand, Netherlands’ moto gurus kicked things off by crafting a set of gilled side panels that sit below the gas tank, as well as an ominous front fairing, which hosts a pair of projector-style headlights.

We notice a set of grippy Dunlop tires hugging the wheels and a robust Acerbis skid plate shielding the single-cylinder powerplant. For a touch of high-tech navigation goodness, the workshop tasked TomTom with supplying a Rider 550 GPS module. This bad boy was conveniently equipped atop the stock gauge cluster for a clutter-free aesthetic.

The finishing touches consist of a majestic tan leather saddle, supported by a tweaked subframe unit. As to that jerry can, it was repurposed to offer additional storage space for extended rides. Last but not least, the bodywork received a juicy color scheme that blends a grey base with gold mesh trimmings.

All things considered, Wrench Kings’ custom Royal Enfield Himalayan does a phenomenal job at looking the business!
