Custom scene in Indonesia was increased significantly, it is no wonder more and more people want to enjoy it . It is also make Andrew Thomson, an Australian gentlemen who worked in Indonesia wanted to get the feel of riding a custom bike. Freshly bought from the market, KTM Duke 200 was shuttle off to Studio Motor Workshop to be converted a scrambler style. “When I choose this bike, I knew that, I need to modify this bike. The distinctive suspension looks perfect for a scrambler style…” Says Andrew. Suspension? Yes it’s a correct combination. But, how about the engine? Well, it’s a fabulous engine, this engine have a 199.5 cc (12.17 cu in) liquid-cooled, four-stroke single 4 valve DOHC with bore X stroke 72mm x 49 mm (2.8 in x 1.9 in) will be fitted in this project. Can’t wait to see a result, right?
Original body was swapped with a custom handmade from 1.2 mm galvanize plate. Andrew have an idea to make a tank with referring to BMW tank design. A manly look still depend on the original form, and the both wheels too. Simple, but gentle. Painting session, a silver grey color was chosen to fill a base-color, then stripping orange with classic-white were selected to give an accent at the body. ‘87’ is a year when Andrew born was added to embellish its look. While, every supporting parts were installed, like, a simple headlight and aftermarket taillight were selected to give a classic-theme looks stiff. And the exhaust was formed referring scramble look. “It’s cool, I love the exhaust shape…” he said, when he saw the finishing part.
After every steps were finished, this bike is totally changed from the original form. You can tell, it’s a first custom-bike using KTM Duke in Indonesia with a different style. “Wow, it’s insane! KTM Duke combined with scrambler style is totally awesome dude…” said one of our customer when he saw this bike at the STUDIO MOTOR workshop.
