Kawasaki Ninja in “Full restomod” mode

To look into the Japanese culture of restomod in vehicles is to meet preparers of the level of Bull Docker Tagos, and projects as unique as this one Ninja GPZ900R. In fact, it is not the first time that we show you some of the work of this Japanese specialist. A few years ago we did the same with this Kawasaki GPZ900R by Bull Docker Tagos: Restomod “Made in Japan”.

As we explained to you previously, Bull Docker Tagos is not only responsible for recreating a top preparation on any copy of GPZ900R that falls into its hands. They also do so by maintaining the degree of use and versatility that the model possesses in its original configuration. There is no point in recreating a wild customization that cannot then be ridden regularly under normal conditions.

That is to say, we fully maintain that Old School essence that a motorcycle as legendary as the GPZ900R exudes, but enjoying the advantages that current equipment elements give us. A formula that is as successful as it is balanced, giving a second life to a veteran with four decades behind her.

Mr. Tago comments in this regard to his Autoby colleagues: “The Ninja is a fun bike to ride. When you modify it, you wonder how much it changes! I can see the changes. First of all, it’s interesting. And it can be enjoyed in many ways. It depends on how you modify it and how you use it. I want to make the fun parts of ninjas even more fun. At the same time, I want everyone to know about them.”

The work carried out by Mr. Tago and his team, on examples of Kawasaki Ninja, at their facilities in Isesaki, Gunma Prefecture, has been, as he explains: “It’s not that we specialize in Ninjas, but Ninjas come here often and we take care of them.”
