Nagpur-based Hindustan Customs has modified a Yamaha RX 135 into a brat café racer, called Tarak. According to the custom house, Tarak symbolizes “the one who takes you across, the star protector.”
According to Animesh Sharan of Hindustan Customs, the customized Yamaha RX 135 features a list of modifications and a custom silver paint scheme, which is fading out of the market these days. The customized RX 135 receives an LED headlight with a custom-made bracket, integrated LED tail lamps and indicators, an expanded 16 litres fuel tank and clip-on handlebars.
Other changes on the modified Yamaha RX 125 brat café racer include a bigger swingarm for the wider rear tire, hand-stitched tanned brown leather seat with matching handlebar grips, and custom front fender. The motorcycle comes with an LED display for the warning lights and a side-mounted number plate holder. The customizer has added a performance chamber to extract better sound from the exhaust system.
According to Hindustan Customs, the Tarak brat café racer uses the stock 132 cc, single-cylinder, two-stroke engine with air-cooling. This engine is capable of producing a maximum power of 14 bhp at 7,500 rpm along with a peak torque of 12.25 Nm at 7,000 rpm. It is paired with a 5-speed gearbox.
The Tarak brat café racer gets braking power from a disc brake at the front and a drum brake setup at the rear. The custom Yamaha RX 135 café racer features telescopic front forks and gas-charged rear shock absorbers. The stock motorcycle had a kerb weight of 116 Kg along with a top speed of 110 kph. Its customised version has a fuel tank capacity of 10.5 litres.
