The next bike of his was a Kawasaki RTZ that was modified to look like a Ninja. Will never forget the experience at a gas station when a real Kawasaki Ninja ridden by a firang pulled up next to us. We were drooling at the real deal and the snooty son of a gun sure did make us eat his dust when he revved and zoomed out after filling fuel.
Finally got some pics - from a friend who dusted off the two decade old collection

TITLE : The man and the machine !

Fifty-one-year-old Praneeth Perumal, an avid biker, still remembers riding on empty, almost deserted Bangalore roads in the 1980s when he could count the number of people on the road.

But today, he dreads riding within the City and whenever he gets the urge to do so, he takes off to the outskirts and heads straight to the hills.

Praneeth has been riding for as long as he can remember and has inspired many young men and women to hit the road with the same passion. “There were a lot of races that were held in the 1980s. A bunch of us would just decide and have a race. We would even modify the bikes to suit the roads. There was a thrill in handling real bikes and challenging ourselves to negotiate the toughest roads and hitting the non-motorable terrains,” explains Praneeth.

Praneeth still has a lot of young men and women who come to him, to pick up tips on riding and one thing that he reiterates is discipline on and off the road. “There’s definitely a certain thrill in speed but I stress that even speed must be exceeded in a disciplined manner. There must be respect for motosports and respect instills discipline,” stresses Praneeth.

He clearly thinks that youngsters need to have more respect for riding itself. “I’ve noticed that most of the young men hit the roads without basic safety gear such as wearing a helmet. All riders must first wear their safety jacket, helmet and then think about riding. This should be done not only for their safety but that of the fellow traveller,”
he says.

Every biker shares a special relationship with his machine. “The relationship between man and his machine in motosports is indeed special. When you decide to hit the race track and get on the bike, the first thing you do is to trust your machine and then focus on the road,” he shares.

Interestingly, the skeleton bike in Puneeth Rajkumar-starrer, ‘Anna Bond’, which caught the fancy of a lot of people, was conceptualised and designed by Praneeth, “I was given a very short time to design a bike. And I took inspiration from the bike in the ‘Ghost Rider’ and modified the basic concept to suit the local tastes. The skeleton bike, I understand, has become a huge hit,” he signs off.

Wow! Love it. Looks purpose built and carries the whole light weight look quite effortlessly.

The only fly in the ointment is the miniature bike feel thanks to the small engine and carb that leaves a lot of gap in the centre region!

It depends on your definition of 'jet'. From the picture it looks like he's set up a centrifugal blower (probably driven from the exhaust) to generate a high-speed stream of air blown from the back. While it probably feels 'windy' to someone standing behind the bike, I doubt that the thrust it produces makes up for the weight of the entire installation. On older piston-engined aircraft, the exhausts were carefully designed to produce a little 'free' thrust. However, even such 24 cylinder 36L aero engines gained only about 8-10% additional thrust.

A proper jet engine would need a high-speed turbine (20 - 50,000 rpm), a fuel system and combustors behind the turbine - none of which are seen on this bike. Lightweight micro-jet engines generating between 0.5kg to 25kg thrust are commercially available abroad and have been fitted to motorcycles (and even bicycles and skateboards) ... tbhp-ians wishing to upgrade their bikes might try contacting aero-modelling suppliers to purchase them.

For those who wish to create a DIY jet-powered bike, you also have the option of building a pulse-jet engine, which was one of the earliest and simplest jet engines. Check out for a video of a bike modified with two of these engines.

@Vaibhav - as far as I know, after-market modifications of technical nature are prohibited by law. Most people do not bother with the process and for most part, RTO doesn't bother you, unless you have very loud pipes or bright lights, or very obvious modifications.

However, there must be some loophole in the law, since you can re-register your vehicle if the engine/chassis number change from the original , which is done in accident cases sometimes , or if the color of the vehicle changes, you're supposed to get it endorsed on the vehicle's certificate.

My worries about modifications is insurance claims, so if I have a superbike with after market exhaust will I be allowed to claim insurance in case of any damages ? I know legally it is not allowed, but how much do they consider while inspecting the bike? will they have a clue if it is remapped?

^normally, the exhaust itself will not be covered since it was added-on afterward, so you have to get it endorsed/updated in your policy , possibly with an increase in premium paid.

But a lot of it up to the surveyor, and they do not have as much knowledge usually, unlike say in the west where insurance investigators are much more thorough and knowledgeable to detect fraud and such. Things like remap will not even be noticable to Indian surveyors.

This happens to be the best bike modifications stories I have read so far. Plus special Kudos to the owner who explains each and every modifications in great detail. The story is on xBHP. I think searching with Ninja San should bring it up. Even after reading about bikes and modifications for years, a lot of mods and their reasoning was new to me.

Regards
Rachit
