Japstyle / Bratstyle

Kawasaki KZ200 bobber tracker

by Rudy Ahmad Riady Taheir • Surabaya • Indonesia

A lot of people use the term #japstyle associated not only to brat-bobber, but especially at tracker and scrambler, usually small single-cylinder customized by boys, with simple and cheap solutions, but with a lot of taste, right as the brat philosophy says!
Indonesia boasts one of the largest #bratstyle community in the world: the JBI "Japstyle and Bratstyle Indonesia". Rudy make part of it; in this page you can enjoy his 1983 Kawasaki KZ200, model also known as Binter Merzy.

Rudy has transformed a impersonal motorcycle designed to get around town, in a beautiful special halfway between a bobber and a tracker.
The first thing that catches the eye looking this Kawa are tires shinko 16-500, imposing bobber big tires, that make careless of holes and bumps. Tires, combined with the slim design of the bike, seem even more "fat", a classic contrast of the bobber. To give at the KZ200 more performance on the rough streets help the upside down forks usually climbed on Yamaha Byson.

The standard trim and the riding position given by the custom handlebars recall instead the street trackers; this small Kawa is really gorgeous to ride. Characteristic in common between bobber and tracker is the small tank, clad with water transferring carbon film. The same treatment was reserved for side panels. Small is also headlight, which fits perfectly with forks and tank, as well as turn light and rear light moved down to the left with the plate. Complete the work mudguards inexistent, almost... custom foot pegs and knobs, handmade seat, enriched with studs in contrast, and inevitable reverse cone muffler... braaaaaap!

Rudy has called his motorbike "Arale", as the character of Japanese anime; maybe the Kawa KZ200 will not be supersonic as Arale, but watch it seems extrovert and madcap like her!
