How do you think the Gixxer in Carbon Avatar will look like?
The top-notch work carried out by both Raptik and No Limit Tuning adds more value to the Gixxer.
The good part is this custom was exhibited in the Swiss Moto that took place in February 2020 and had garnered a lot of attention.
As of now, we are not sure about the performance of the Gixxer after its conversion. However, the weight of the Gixxer came down drastically from 200 kgs to 175 kgs.
202 kgs being the weight of production Gixxer. Plus the look has changed and it looks versatile and undoubtedly it is of the race models to go on track.
Aesthetically a few components on the Gixxer gets the blue colour. And the blue and black colours align with Raptiks vision.
As far as the component goes the ThyssenKrupp Rims are made of carbon. Plus it gets Akrapovic exhaust.
What we could see is we cannot stop it comparing to the limited edition Suzuki Ryuyo that Suzuki had brought in 2018.
Suzuki GSX-R1000 Ryuyo, a 209hp superbike that weighs 370 lbs (dry), and in 2018 is the response to the secret photographs that Suzuki has been sharing via web-based networking media.
Crafted by Suzuki Moto Italia, just 20 Ryuyo-spec machines were made for utilization, and each unit had a price tag of €29,990.
Multiple aftermarket components like Yoshimura, Öhlins, Dunlop, Brembo, K&N, Motul, D&D, were put on Ryuyo and the bodywork was all in carbon fibre.
As far as this Gixxer goes Raptik doesn’t talk about the price tag and the custom is still in progress. There are still few add ons that Raptik wants to put and they are, a carbon inlet funnel, Ceracarbon sprocket and 520 drive chain.
