“Is this a Yamaha’s commercially available racing TZ !?” One day when I saw a modified car quietly decorated in the shop at a motorcycle apparel store in Nishi-Azabu, Minato-ku, Tokyo Could not help but blurt out this sentence.

Impressive and even misleading as art

The round-shaped bullet fairing, angular fuel tank, single seat cushion, and slender body shape composed of the above parts may even make people mistake it as a reference to TZ’s art work.

However, if you take a closer look, you will find that its engine is four-stroke, and it is equipped with lamps and license plates. It is very obvious that it is a motorcycle that can ride on the road. Later, I also found that it is a modified car based on the YZF-R25, which has brought great visual impact.

Modified cars in cooperation with Japan and the United States

In fact, this YZF-R25-based retro-modified car is a modified car launched by ROARS ORIGINAL, the driving force behind the test report. It was selected by the design company GG Retrofitz, which sells exterior parts in California. Manufactured exterior parts.

Zh

The overall body concept was designed by ROARS ORIGINAL, and GG Retrofitz exterior parts and other modified accessories were transferred to the 9-GATE motorcycle company in East Kurume, Japan.

Modified style that mature knights will also satisfy

Briefly introduce this car. It is based on the previous generation (2015-18 type) YZF-R25. The exterior parts are changed to accessories made by GG Retrofitz. The exterior kit includes the upper fairing, the left and right side fairings, and the lower fairing. Covers, seat fairings and mounting brackets.

In order to install this exterior kit, the separate handles, terminal-type rearview mirrors, and soilless removal kits that need to be replaced are parts from other modified brands.

In addition, because of the strong thoughts of Takahashi Takahashi, the person in charge of ROARS ORIGINAL, “Since you want to do your best, let’s create a modified car that mature riders will be satisfied with!” The tail section of the “PRUNUS” sliding sleeve type exhaust pipe made by Y’S GEAR, and the front and rear suspensions are replaced with KYB fully adjustable suspension.

Zh

Regarding the ride comfort of the rider, this modified car chose artificial leather cushions that make full use of the leather texture, and improved the design in consideration of touch, support, and feet landing. As for the “facade” headlights of motorcycles, round LED lamps of European and American brands are used.

想以自己的特色表現出復古風潮

這次採訪還請到ROARS ORIGINAL的負責人高橋兒生來和我們聊一下這台YZF-R25改裝車。

Zh

「GG Retrofitz在去年(2018)底展示了他們所改裝的1970年代廠車風格的YAMAHA Intercolor(黃色底色加上黑白方格的YAMAHA經典塗裝),這台車獲得了眾人好評,也讓從20出頭到60幾歲的消費者族群都產生了興趣。

Zh

不只原本曾經歷過「那個年代」的人覺得懷念,就連許多年輕人也都因為子彈型整流罩的形狀而覺得新奇無比,應該有很多人其實是想要買以前的舊車,但因為二手價錢貴到根本買不起、或是考慮到之後的維修問題而買不下手等等。

Zh

「既然這樣不如以現代車的騎乘性能及可靠性,加入昔日摩托車的風格及設計來打造摩托車吧!」正因為越來越多人出現這樣的想法,所以現在新古典風潮才會突然竄起。

Zh

既然要做,就要表現出我們自己的特色呀! (笑)我可是非常想要打造出一台和復古外型呈現出截然相反感覺的摩托車喔! “

▲正如高橋兒生的企圖一樣,最後完成的改裝車款雖然採用了復古造型,卻營造出現代摩登氣氛的非常適合都會風景,感覺上就是一台為了成熟騎士所打造的Fun Bike。

編輯長的試乘報告

從擋風鏡看到的景色最漂亮!吸睛程度也是數一數二!

造型上以1960年代公路賽車為主題打造出復古外型,ROARS ORIGINAL的設計採用典雅色調及塗裝來營造出都會氣氛。雖然是使用現代車款,但改成分離式把手後將騎乘姿勢稍微向前傾、把手角度也非常集中,感覺非常有運動感。

Zh

透過改裝車搭載的子彈型整流罩所看出去的景色非常具有復古情調,感覺上好像真的騎乘在以前的賽車一樣。皮革製坐墊不只非常有質感、坐起來也很柔軟舒服,但是因為有一點斜度,所以穿牛仔褲的話可能會一直往前滑。

▲FRP材質的外裝套件是直接安裝上去的製作精度極高,即使進行高速巡航也不會出現雜音、坐墊整流罩也具備一定剛性,在安裝時不會有任何縫隙,感覺上就是非常小心謹慎地在YZF-R25上進行改裝。

因為造型極為修長,讓人覺得好像是破風而行的感覺,也因為外裝零件輕量化,所以左右傾斜車身時的感覺也非常輕盈,至於Y’S GEAR製排氣管在轉速上升的同時響起高昂排氣音浪就好像賽車一樣,聽起來讓人神清氣爽。

Zh

其他像是前後懸吊使用KYB製全可調避震器的順暢作動感也令人印象深刻,在騎乘感方面也帶有一點點彈性的騎起來很舒服。

Zh

LED頭燈、分離式把手、後視鏡及前後避震器等雖然都是使用改裝零件,但是卻與整體風格非常搭配,提高了改裝車的質感及騎乘性能,完美呈現出它應有的價值。在鬧區騎乘時,它甚至比歐美進口的高級車款還要吸引路人目光!(笑)

Zh

雖然這款外裝套件是前一代(2015-18年式)YZF-R3/R25專用,但如果以中古車為基礎,一點一滴打造出專屬於自己的一台獨一無二的改裝車,也是樂趣無窮的一件事。
