How often do you find folks dedicating an entire year to create a design that’s not only visually appealing, but also aerodynamically stable? One such story landed in our inbox from one of avid followers, Saurav Verma.
Saurav is a second year student of National Institute of Fashion Technology New Delhi who redesigned his Yamaha Fazer 2.0 to own a unique ride. The end product heavily resembles the Hyosung GT250R but it’s not just strap on job with random fairing. A neatly thought customisation process saw Saurav design the body panels on 3DS MAX software.
The semi-fairing has been replaced by a custom made fiberglass full fairing while the straight handlebar has been thrown out of the window for a sportier clip-on unit. The handlebar is made with aluminium alloy sand casting. One of the biggest changes is the dual headlight setup has been replaced by a single piece illuminator which makes it somewhat resemble the Korean quarter-litre.
There are some minor tweaks to the rear panel too with the tail light now sitting rights below the pillion seat. The motorcycle, after the body panel customisation, was painted in dual paint scheme of red and black. The headlight and tail light were carved by thermoforming process. The design is efficiently aerodynamic and balanced and is claimed to add no extra weight over the stock motorcycle. Mahesh Motors in Gaziabad provided their expertise to Saurav and helped him with the fabrication work.
Saurav has put in a lot of time and effort to turn this motorcycle into reality. It took him one year of research on bike designs, aerodynamics study and material handling, strength and limitations study to finish the customisation process. The total mod-job cost him INR 30,000 which isn’t too high, especially if you consider the effort put into making this motorcycle.
