Tuning is one aspect of vehicle modification that has the capacity of turning a vehicle upside down totally. These days you can also buy your tuning parts and even install them if you know a thing or two about internal combustion engines or happen to study automotive engineering subjects at school or college.
You can also go out to a professional vehicle modifier to get the things more effectively, if you are not too sure of your skills in this area. Kawasaki W 800 SC is one of the many favorites of vintage motorcycle lovers. LSL, which is known for its precision in the bike customization, has created a prototype of this bike.
Though this Kawasaki shown here has been a modified version yet the whole classic appeal of the bike has been kept intact by the modifier, which is a great feat achieved LSL. This is so because generally it has been noticed that customization providers cannot keep up with the looks after modifying a bike. There is no doubt that the bike becomes far better in term of performance but the genuine classic appearance of the vehicle is lost somewhere in the transition. However, this is not the case with Kawasaki W 800 SC modified by LSL.
I can also assure that for those who like the Triumph Bonneville, they shall also like this one. LSL has fitted the up-scaled bike with its scrambler-type handlebars and custom headlamps. The Daytona speedometer has been provided for the rider to be informed with all the information that could seem critical for a performance biker. The dashboard is spick and span while the rims in the new bike features black anodized rims.
To lend the bike with an advanced braking system it has been adorned with 300mm Galfer rotors and steel braided brake hose for the front wheel. In terms of the rubber, the rear tire has been improved with an 18” inch wheel in place of a 17” rim earlier. This too has added many notches to the style of the bike and Pirelli tires are lending it volume and stability on the road and steep turns. The original seat has also been customized by LSL with its Six Days seat, so that the rider stays comfortable on long journeys in the countryside.
