TVS Apache 160:: Akshay Sharma.


Nos encanta recibir motos de gente no profesional que después por su labor y entusiasmo consiguen colocarse con méritos en eso de ser "profesionales".
Y seguro que nuestro amigo Akshay desde Jaipur, India, será uno de estos casos.
Gracias Akshay por enviarnos tu trabajo!!!!

Saludos!!!!



Designer : Akshay Sharma, Associate professor of Design at Virginia Tech University in USA
Team, Rohit Sharma, Vaibhav Sharma
Place of work : Jaipur, India
Starting Bike : TVS Apache 160 (160CC)
Primary craftsmen who implemented the design :
Denter, welder - Waqueel
Paint - Mamu


Small Capacity, four stroke bikes rule the scene, but I wanted something that made getting around town a little more exciting and also established us in the custom bike scene in India. 
Almost all the changes are cosmetic, with the air filter being housed in the stretched fuel tank and we converted the bike into a single seater. The suspension , engine and drivetrain have been kept stock, to make servicing easy. We added a new exhaust, to make the note little bit louder.
The bike is a blast to ride with a lot more aggressive riding position, I know, 160cc s but if you know about Indian traffic, it's plenty.

The primary design intent was to borrow from the edgy 80s styling and reinterpret it to create a 2015, retro bike. The head light, tail light, mudguards, side cowls, seat and tank are all custom made and almost all the work was done in a motorcycle market at Ajmeri gate in Jaipur.
Summarizing the approach, we wanted to create a bike that would turn heads, and it does.
