The Brasse 31BLK is one insane modification based on the Kawasaki Ninja 250. Prepared by one Joshua Brasse, it’s basically a kit for those who find the Ninja 250 looks a bit drab- in hindsight, it kind of is.
The kit involves removing most of the panels-including the front fairing and the OEM headlamp assembly from the stock bike, and fixing some bolt on parts with no electrical or mechanical modifications whatsoever. The stock panels are done away with and two unique, minimalist design elements called Gullwings are incorporated. Also there are a couple of futuristic cannon-like thingies attached to the sides, called “prongs”, which bear the headlamps. If that doesn’t tickle your sci-fi bones, we don’t know what would!
What’s cooler is that the bike can be switched from a double seat setup to a solo fighter in the blink of an eye. The rear sub frame incorporates a special slot in which the removable passenger seat slides in and locks. The whole thing doesn’t come across as an afterthought and gels seamlessly with the minimal design. And it looks just mega! Build quality, fit & finish doesn’t come across as shoddy too.
The Brasse 31BLK Kawasaki Ninja 250 kit is available for $1,695 (€1,290), and it will only fit the 2008-2012 models of the Ninja 250.
