Nothing ever really goes to plan. The multitude of options available to us at any one time makes it hard to know where we will end up. Unless it’s time to go to the night club, because that is a given. This indecisiveness through an excess of options affects the custom motorcycle world as well, with culture/drivetrain/performance/bike styling choices making it hard to settle on one result. This is what happened with today’s feature bike, the latest offering from us, call it THE TEMPER that we built from 2014 Kawasaki Versys 650.When the custom motorcycle scene in Indonesia booming, it is no wonder more and more people want to be seen riding one. Take for instance like Bro Anas D.V, He bring his bike and wanted to get the feel of riding a custom bike that converted to a scrambler style. “When I choose this bike, I knew that I needed to modify this bike. The distinctive suspension looks perfect for a scrambler style”, says Anas. The engine is a 649 cc liquid-cooled, four-stroke parallel twin with a bore X stroke of 83 mm x 60 mm.
The layout for the bike was adjusted accordingly, Building on previous experience, we only need to rechanged the model from original frame. The front end and swing arm plus back suspension still using an original including the rims. Only changed tires using Shinko E705 120/80-17 for front and 150/70-17 for the back. The original body was swapped with a handmade unit crafted from 1.2mm galvanized plate, along fitted in original Versys main frame. The custom headlight and taillight on “The Temper” are joined by Pro Tapper handlebar, custom exhaust system and topped off with a classic grey base by Komet Studio, highlighted with silver accents, using Sikkens product. Finally, with the build finished, there is only one thing left to do, and it is best summed up by our self. Nothing the best, it’s just a simply stunning from us, but really, It’s satisfied!!
