Default The building of a concept bike...

Hello to all the fellow grease loving,wheel spinning,lunatic petrol heads..I am Tyagi ramakrishnan from chennai studying mechanical engineering..I have decided to build a concept bike which i have named as "THE PRIMATE"..It will be the combination of almost all the greatest motorcycles ever made by man..atleast that is what i think of my design..I would love to involve as many petrol heads as possible to get all the different design views and all the more criticism on the designs..

Basic specs decided upon so far,
Engine : 1.3 litre suzuki
power : 85 bhp
chassis : All aluminium with reinforcement(custom)
tyres : Probably SUV tyres(like batman's bike)
Transmission : Custom again

This is kinda the start..The official beginning is just a few weeks away..

Thank you..

Hey Tyagi,

Now that's something. I remember one bike was prepared in my city with gypsy engine carb I guess, you are thinking of the same but MPFI, right? It was a cruiser design, I recollect it used a spruced up and modified Enfield chassis and mated Rd gearbox with the engine. Smaller radiator was designed and muffler was something complicated. It was a runner, was on sale for about 2L.
Battery location would be crucial.
On what lines you are thinking about the concept design, will it be cruiser, sports or something else.

Regards

Pranav

Default Thanks a billion for the response..

Well good question on the type of concept in the process of designing..
Well this bike is a complete mix from a dirt bike to a super bike to a cruiser and this is possible cause the person will be in the position kinda like batman on the batpod in the dark knight and i am gonna use two big tyres like that bike..
But the similarities end there..and yes i am going in for an MPFI in the 1.3 litre suzuki engine from an esteem or a swift..

Guys once again thanks for responding..Will need your contacts to get the concept done..

I had done a similar project with a RD350. Came out awesome. Obvioulsly had its issues in the begining, but now she's awesome to look at & to ride.

I think the batpod tyre idea you should restrict to the back wheel only. Just a suggestion. All the best

Default Thank you again for the response..

Well yeah i kinda drew up an initial sketch.. well been gettin a lotta negative reviews from people i give this idea.. but hey that aint stopping me..

My estimate on the budget is 2 lakhs depending on the price and usage of materials..Most of the standard components are cheap but the custom made ones can take a toll on the budget..

Anyway let me get the engine to kick off the project..

regards

PS: Will help if anybody can help me with getting reliable contacts in chennai..

Default Going to start on RADD system..

This concept will involve a revolutionary front suspension system which will put the front forks to rest..

I will be trying to combine the RADD system with the hub steering system for maximum efficiency for the bike..and it looks awesome too that is why..

Now if you guys wanna learn more about Radd system check this out..it was invented by a guy called james parker very interesting stuff ..

Hi Tyagi
Recently joined Team-BHP have tried to introduce myself but was blocked in every turn.
Since I was able to open up and reply to your thread shall get it on.
I was born in Chennai and have been resident in the UK for 52 years,it was and still is my ambitionto ride to India on my Fireblade with a few mates on a sentimental journey.
India has come along way in the biking field and wanted to know fi superbike tyres were easily available in Chennai.
Maybe this could be the start of something real special as I play the tech support and technician for a blade club
Cheers mate
