Ryca Motors Suzuki S40/Savage Bobber Kit On the Market Now

Ryca Motors RR-1 Hardtail Bobber
Ryca Motors of Whittier, CA was started a few years ago by Casey Stevenson, a NASA engineer who left the agency to pursue a passion for building cafe racers based upon the Suzuki S40/Savage 650cc thumpers. We featured Ryca's low-cost cafe racer kits in a post here last year. Now we've just seen this cool hardtail bobber kit for the Suzuki, the Ryca RR-1.

Stevenson points out that the S40/Savage has been available from Suzuki for over twenty years, and there are a lot of good, clean, low-mileage S40's available in the used-bike market.

The kit is very complete, with hardtail assembly, peanut tank, a solo saddle, steel rear fender, taillight assembly, reverse cone muffler, and more. There is a raft of optional Ryca parts available, too, such as a front fender and sidemount taillight/license plate holder.

Note that the hardtail assembly bolts on to the Suzuki's frame; no welding required.

Check out the extensive customer bikes gallery at Ryca to get an idea of the cool builds riders are making with Ryca kits. Also note that Ryca has now branched out into Sportsters with a cafe racer kit for 1991 to 2003 Harley Sportsters. (That will be the subject of a later post, I think.)
