Lunatic's Honda CBR250RR Neo Café Racer

Do not know why, when I saw this Honda custom motorcycle on Naikmotor page for the first time, I immediately fell in love with it. Maybe this is called Love at first sight. Yes, the figure of the enchanting custom motorcycle with café racer theme is built from the base of Honda CBR250RR by Lunatic Custom Motorcycle Jakarta for the 'Honda Dream Ride Project 2017'.

According to the builder Yuwono Jati of Lunatic Custom Motorcycle Jakarta, the basic idea in developing the concept of café Racer in the Honda Dream Ride Project 2017 is very different from the café racer concept in general. Inevitably the result of Honda CBR250RR Neo Café Racer this time is a sweet blending between classic and modern concept.

Indeed the builder is very fond of the café racer theme, besides that he wants to make something far different from the original images. The standard view of the CBR250RR is instantly overhauled based on the concepts that he made after long discussions with the Honda Dream Ride Project 2017 mentors.

Yuwono Jati totally changed the body of motorcycle by removing all of the standard fairing. Although impressed classical but the new fairing is quite modern, and he also did not make the fairing one fully set and let the engine form a little exposed.

Indeed, there is no total change, there are still some old parts that are deliberately maintained like a standard tank, and the mainframe also does not change to match the Honda's requirements for this event.

He then thought how to make the fairings with old-fashioned looks can still be pleasing to the eye when combined with the modern looks of standard CBR250RR tank. Because if one component wrong implementation would damage the overall concept, where the outline of the Neo Café Racer.
On the back of Honda CBR250RR Custom Neo Café Racer, the disc is replaced drumbrakes, and mounted tubular swing arm. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/2vjcUNt)
To reinforce the classical impression he uses the spokes rims, then drumbrakes, and classic tread tires from Firestone. Then some innate parts are also not totally replaced, just by changing the original shape such as swing arm, then footstep, and lastly with the selection of white color.
Honda CBR250RR Custom Neo Café Racer have been tested on the streets as far as 500 km to prove the control is still comfortable for daily use. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/2vjcUNt)
In the selection of colors, the builder deliberately chose a white color to reinforce the classic impression. And the rest for the frame and the legs are given gunmetal color, a little warm accent with red in the seat and mounting Honda-wing logo on the side of the tank.

Honda CBR250RR Neo Café Racer was built for three months, then introduced to the media through a special event in Yogyakarta. In addition, this motorcycle is also tested with a total distance of about 500 km along with other custom motorcycles. The goal is to prove that the custom motorcycle remains comfortable while on riding.
According to the builder, in the process of making this custom motorcycle until to appear maximally almost without significant constraints, only the limited processing time can be regarded as a major obstacle, and according to him also the limited time is a bit inhibiting to get the best quality results according to the his workshop standards.
