A crazy idea of Megapro Techno Fighter

The Honda Modif Contest 2016 event produced many cool and unique motorcycles. One of them, the work of Charles Wawolangi dubbed Megapro Techno Fighter.

"Initially, just thought to make an extreme motorcycle," said Charles. By the extreme word, then directing him to browse on internet and saw many forms of motorcycle concept. "From there,  I convinced myself to choose techno concept," explained the owner of the Manado-based workshop R1 MotorSport (in Jalan Wolter Monginsidi No. 173, Manado).

According to him, all parts installed on the motorcycle were custom made. Only the engine alone was left of the 2003 Honda Megapro. And the time required to build this bike was three months, and the most complicated process was the frames making.

Its techno nuance is realized by forming a new frames construction. The motorcycle frameworks are composed of several pipe sizes. Diameter of 2 inches were used to the main frame, while the size of 1.5 inches and 1 inch is made to the subframe.

Then the frame directly connected to the front wheels. The design was inspired after he saw the figure of Bimota Tesi. "I think the front frame construction which is directly connected with the front wheel represents the shape of modern design," he said further. While for the body, Charles chose the streetfighter motorcycle concept. By relying on the carbon fiber materials, the shape of the body was made with full sharp indentations.

According to Charles, the most unique part of this motorcycle is how to work motorcycle suspension. Therefore, it could go up and down so make it remains comfortable when riding on the highway. 

"Even, to drive the motorcycle was no longer used the chain, but already replaced by the rubber belt. It make the sound of the bike is more subtle, because if used the chain certainly has a large size and also caused the noise when the motorcycle running." he said.
Due to all components are custom made, then the costs to build this bike is quite expensive, reaching $3,693 or approx Rp.50 million. However, Charles was satisfied, because it could be one of the winners and grabbed the title in the FFA under 2006 class at the Honda modification event.

Kept spur your adrenaline on the power of two-wheeled monster and stay alive with the true safety riding. May God will forgive Your sins and so does the cops.... ••• [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | OTOMANIA | OTOPLUS]
