Indonesians are truly amazing at using whatever resources we have to create something. You see, due to the heavy import tax in Indonesia bikes like TW200’s, W650’s and SR400’s are not available, so we have to think outside the square when building classic looking motorcycles. This time the donor bike is the uninspiring 2008 Yamaha Scorpio 225. We designed and built this bike with the brief from our customer and help of our team. Everything is either custom made by ourselves or bought from aftermarket parts workshop in Jakarta. The end of result is the perfect custom to transport you down to the local street at Jakarta. So…this is our latest built and we call it THE RUSKY.
The suspension sector is the first step we did, we changed the original front fork with 41mm telescopic from Yamaha Byson. TK Japan 18X2.50 inch wheel combined with Shinko E705 120/80-17 tire, were choose to complete the front. At the rear, we changed mono shock suspension to dual shock suspension. For this, we put 340 mm YSS Z-Series rear shock. TK Japan 18X3.00 inch rim was selected to be mated with Shinko E705 150/70-18 tire. “Well, from the beginning I was prefer to use that kind of wheels, to emphasize the ‘scrambler’ looks…”. Here comes the bodywork, a rounded-gas tank inspired from Triumph gastank with a minimalist style made from 1.2 mm galvanized material plate to be the main body, fenders, and battery box. After the bodywork was done, Komet Studio made his move! We choose mate grey from Sikkens and decorated with a look like raw paint, The Studio Motor Design logo was prettify the side tank. Completing the last project, fatbar handlebar was selected to provide ‘the enjoyment of riding’. The Lights was attached to the main shape. ‘Masterpiece-custom’ exhaust was selected to drag up the classic theme with a strong sound.
We states that modify this bike with the purpose of earning our customers satisfaction and pride. We can safely assume, we have done that with this build. So….please welcome “THE RUSKY”.
