This Sleek Suzuki GT380 By The Motoworks Is 100% CAD-Designed

Although motorcycle customization is still largely an analog art, it’s one that’s quickly becoming a digitized design study. From machining parts to mocking up body panels, builders are increasingly incorporating CAD software in order to improve their process. Take this Suzuki GT380 by The Motoworks, for example.

After starting life as a series of rough 2D sketches, the design was converted into 3D CAD form. From there, it was broken down into a “kit” of parts that could be machined or welded. By designing each component before fabrication, The Motoworks could test their compatibility prior to installation. In other words, no wondering if your fender will fit — just pain-free plug and play. While waiting for its new bodywork, the humble stock Suzuki underwent a number of performance mods. For instance, it’s been rebuilt with changes to the port timing and compression ratio for improved power. It’s also been fitted with a custom stainless steel expansion chamber. And when it comes to the ride, it gains a GSX-R600 fork up front and an Öhlins unit at the rear, each dialed-in to perfection. But the cherry on top has to be the new frame featuring integrated fuel and oil tanks.
