Automobile designing is an emerging field in India where young enthusiasts are trying hard to bring some impressive outputs for the country. A few days back, we reported about the compact single-seater Tata Nano (named as SAZ) that was designed by three engineering students by using scrap. Now we get our eyes on a new interesting motorcycle, MS01, that is conceived by an automotive designer. The young chap’s name is Anoop who created the motorcycle you are seeing in the images.
The MS01 is based on a Hero CBZ Xtreme and the bike is completely redesigned except the engine and few others mechanical bits. In mechanical terms, the rear twin-shock suspension is replaced with a mono-shock setup. The swing arm has been completely redesigned and the basic suspension setup has also been changed to upgrade the riding dynamics of the MS01. The fuel tank is taken from the stock bike, nonetheless the complete body is hand-made of fibre and steel sheet that looks quite aerodynamically crafted.

The rear tail design is quite similar to the Yamaha R15, evident from its tail light which is taken from it. The handle bars, iron-man inspired headlight, full-faired body, foot rests and seats are all designed by Anoop using his own conceptual and painstaking efforts. The braking power is enriched with disc brakes assembly at both ends and custom-made muffler is used to make the MS01 growl loud enough to match its personality.
The young designer has been getting much appraisal for his long time dedicated efforts. Recently the MS01 was unveiled by the India’s motorcycle racing champion, Rajini Krishnan. The MS in bike name stands for the ‘Maximum Speed’. The MS01 designer, Anoop, has done his masters in automotive designing, passed out from DYP-DC institute and he’s dreaming of building more classic designs ahead.
