Let us understand how folks at Singular Rides had transformed the R nineT in a Gotham Hero.
Back in 2013 Singular Rides presented the concept to Roland Sands.
With the help of the definitive study, the ‘Dark Knight’ gets more contemporary style more evocative lines.
The first element to look at is the front which is a hull a curvy, muscular component that houses a single protruding LED while the LED is inside the vertical grid.
From both the end the hull reaches up to the fuel tank. The rear now gets a sleek and stylish look.
Rizoma substitutes multiple components, and it adds more valve to the custom.
The chassis is an Ohlins mono-shock absorber, and Andreani kit replaces the stock forks.
The paint scheme consists of dual-tone black and white colour with maximum covered in the black.
Further to give it a modern look the traditional two stock exhaust pipes are replaced by SC-Project which has carbon end cap. Both the exhaust pipes come in black colour.
The transformation is a killer as the rich heritage R nineT gets a fantastic futuristic conversion.
