Bronco Racer

When Lotus’s C-01 concept dropped in February of 2014, it had a lot of motorcycle enthusiasts salivating. That hunger was never satisfied, though, so the crew at Smoked Garage decided to design a machine inspired by the C-01 and fabricate it in house. The base for what would become the Bronco Racer was a new Kawasaki ER-6n – an unusual choice, for sure, but one that has proven to be a good one.These images here are not mere renderings or computer model: it is real metal, with a real engine, a real rider and able to be ridden on real roads. We this beast the ‘Bronco Racer’, and while the C-01 design inspiration behind this build can’t be denied, there are a bunch of custom touches on the Bronco Racer that are different from the original Lotus design that inspired this concept bike.
