Suzuki Grass Tracker 250 -Bad ass! I like this one almost just as it is. Honda cb400ss -Very cool. Reminds me of the old dual sports from the late 60's-early 70's.
Suzuki tu250 -New for '09 & the only one in the bunch available here in the U.S. -So while I'm on the subject, these are my pics for best brat bike victims. Current/late model of course. I'm not even mentioning classics cuz they can be cool in almost any style. Unfortunately, the first two are all but out of reach for those of us here in the states. They were never relesed in the U.S. so getting a hold of one would be quite a bitch. Any of these would also make great little cafe bikes!
-This style of bike may or may not become the next big fad in motorcyling, but I have been really jazzed on them lately. They just look like one hell of a lot of fun! According to some folks on the Jockey Journal, among other sites; this shop http://bratstyle.com/ pioneered the look. Now any bike of this style seems to be refered to as "brat style". These bikes are generaly (but not always) built around small displacement Japanese engines with only minor modifications (if any) to their frames. Almost all of them keep the rear swing arm with stock or short shocks. Suposedly this is due to ridgid frames being illegal in the areas where these fellas live.? Any how, I think they're great. Looks like they could be a super cheap build & a nice mix of street tracker, chopper & cafe racer; my 3 favorites! Plus, they gotta be super light weight & must get about 100 mpg! Ok, maybe 98.
