    As a motorcycle brand, not having a modern classic or retro machine in the line-up seems to be a must these days. The motorcycle scene is healthier than ever and the demand for puristic, vintage inspired machines is huge. Since 2011, Kawasaki has the beautiful W800 to fill in this space. […]

    Picking a full on modern race bike as a donor for building a vintage looking cafe racer project can be a slippery slope. But Flavio Vanna and Fabio Mattioli, founders of Brazil-based workshop Mr. Ride, took this challenge and transformed a 2011 Kawasaki Ninja 250 into this beautiful café racer.

    If you’re giving your custom motorcycle project the label “tribute to Valentino Rossi”, you’re not afraid.
