We have often seen people (mostly over-smart ones) having a solution for everything and we mean each and everything ranging from a pin to a plane – the “Jugaads” as we Indians like to term it. While some aesthetical or performance upgrades in the automobiles is a common sight, the following list showcases a number of outrageous jugaads that people across the country, and some abroad, have undertaken.

- When you own a Bajaj Pulsar 135 but KTM is life. This aspirational owner modified his Bajaj Pulsar 135 LS to suit his need for the KTM RC series. He seems to have achieved the goal of his dream bike and that too at a fraction of its original cost.

- This jugaad, based on the modest moped is nowhere close to its original form. It has gone through a detailed transformation, now sporting a single seat as opposed to the conventional two-seat setup. The engine, as well as some other components, have been painted in a shade of gold while the OEM tyres make way for the aftermarket wide tyre kit.

- The flying angel seems to have gone up a bit too high when it comes to the modifications on his Royal Enfield. We dread to even name most of the modifications carried out to the otherwise manly bullet. I mean, what was this guy even thinking?

- One of the most common and popular superbikes today, the Suzuki Hayabusa inspired many to have one of their own, although in their own budget and this is one of those many examples. This modified Hayabusa is based on a popular Bajaj motorcycle, the Pulsar 180. The 180 cc variant made way for this modification and one can still get such modifications done for a small chunk of the total cost of the 1340 cc monster.

- This example here is the winner of the list. We can’t even decipher the model that had to take birth again in this hideous form. The looks and the wheelbase of the motorcycle though suggest that it was predominantly a cruiser citing the chrome draped V-Twin engine seen in the image. What do you guess it is? A Harley-Davidson probably?

- Do you want a 3 wheeler? Say no more. This Royal Enfield stretch has not only gained a tyre but also some extra seating capacity. The extended body is joint with the help of a custom swing arm while its chassis seems to have been taken from another unit of the same model.

- NO! This is not a test-mule of any upcoming motorcycle. Judging by the number plate, this Hero Passion from West Bengal saw a custom design. This guy certainly seems to have taken the term wrap to his heart or rather to his head by completely covering the motorcycle in blue and white stripes. The so-called ‘artist’ didn’t even give a thought about sparing the engine or even the suspension.

- This model, which was a Honda Activa prior to its modification, seems to have given up most of its body parts for a naked look. The scooter also receives a custom cowl, custom handlebar, custom footboard and so on.

- We bet most of you wouldn’t be able to make out which model made way to come back in this avatar. This Bajaj Chetak based modification seems to have retained only the engine of the modest scooter of its times albeit in what seems to be a chrome wrapped version.

- Based on a step-through moped, this eye-poking design took a few parts from the Bajaj Pulsar family. The parts include the headlamp assembly, tail section, and front mud-guard. The aftermarket seats as well as a paint job of yellow push your eyes to look into a new direction altogether. Don’t miss the dual exhaust pipes.
