Katros began their custom project with a 2017 Kawasaki ER-6N, drawing inspiration from flat-track race bikes with a futuristic twist.

The Kawasaki was disassembled and set aside on the workbench to transform upon reaching Katros Headquarters. With the replacement of the original subframe with a specially constructed element, the crew drastically changed the ER-6N’s rear proportions.

This new framework supports a pointed tail section with integrated tracker-style side covers, housing the motorcycle’s electronics and a slim LED taillight at the back.

While the factory fuel tank remains, it is now accompanied by custom side covers. Additionally, Katros fabricated a new belly pan, and the front end received considerable attention.

To give the bike a more substantial look, custom fork shrouds were installed. These shrouds opened up to reveal a prominent front fairing with LED turn signals placed on the fork covers and a recessed aftermarket projector headlight.

The Shinko E805 dual-purpose tires are mounted on the original Kawasaki wheels, which have been given a dramatic visual appearance by adding solid metal discs. A reused Yamaha handlebar and a thin black leather seat are examples of ergonomic improvements.

The cockpit is also equipped with downsized aftermarket mirrors, the stock instrument panel, and controls. The parallel-twin engine of the ER-6N remains internally unchanged but benefits from new stainless-steel exhaust piping in a two-into-one configuration, tucked behind the belly pan.

The eye-catching livery, a blend of red, dark grey, and black with bold white Motul graphics, completes the transformation, much to Ziko’s delight.
