Read for information on Indian modified bikes
Bike modification is the latest fad
among the Indian youth. Since most of the college-going
crowd can't afford expensive international bikes they
take recourse to modifications to jazz-up their bikes.
Modification can be done both to the engine as well as to the body of the bike. While engine modification can increase the performance and efficiency of the bike, cosmetic changes seek to lend a snazzier look to the bikes.
The most common alterations include strapping on an extra silencer, increasing the size of the rear tyre, changing the handle bar, using alloy wheels and changing shock absorbers. Most of the time the entire body kit is changed while keeping the engine intact. The bodywork is usually made of Fiberglass-Reinforced-Plastic (FRP).
On the looks department, bright paint jobs and snazzy stickers add glamour to the vehicle. Duplicate logos of sports bikes are slapped on to attract attention.
Even the sound of a bike can be tweaked upon. A diffuser gives the base sound of a Harley Davidson while chambers lend the effect of dirt bikes and race bikes. An exhaust would give the effect of a powerful bike. But all this comes at the cost of precious mileage.
