Yamaha FZ-S Scrambler mod by Hustler Moto
Praveen M, Engineer-turned-motorcycle journalist. I'm a sucker for cruising down the highways, and twisties in the hills.
The Hustler Moto, a modification house from Jaipur, Rajasthan has turned the naked Yamaha FZ-S into a dirt-friendly scrambler.
The base motorcycle is a 2014 Yamaha FZ-S, and it has gone extensive changes for off-road capability. The bike features a round aftermarket halogen headlamp flanked by LED indicators. They have removed the stock fuel tank and have replaced it with a Hero motorcycle’s unit. The side panels, front and rear fenders are all hand-made. The custom house has raised the front telescopic fork for better ground clearance, and the rear retains the monoshock unit. The alloy wheels are shod with meatier Ralco knobby tires for easy terrain taming. The brakes are stock, with disc at the front and a rear drum.
The rear sub-frame flows nicely into a grab rail, and the single-piece ribbed seat is custom made as well. A K&N air filter feeds air into the engine. They have tuned the carburettor as per the aftermarket air filter’s requirements for optimum performance. The exhaust is a custom-made rocket-style unit. These modifications have transformed the street-oriented FZ-S into an agile scrambler. The duration of the build stands at 6 weeks.
