Modernised: Diamond Atelier Suzuki DR650 Cafe Racer


Custom motorcycle garage Diamond Atelier are all about creating next generation bikes, specifically Cafe Racers that don’t follow the same old trends.

For one of their latest projects, the Germany based builders have presented this 1992 model Suzuki DR650 which was re-designed from ground up, including the chassis. With the DR650 being a full-on dirt bike in standard form, no expense was spared in tearing down bits of plastic and beginning from scratch.

After producing a modified main frame and a rear frame that was hand built, the team then went onto a full custom suspension setup, before setting the bike on a rare set of 17 inch racing wheels wrapped around Performance Metzeler Racetec RR tyres.

The engine was then rebuilt (from ground up of course) and the carbs were rejetted with a K&N filter and Supertrapp muffler added. New headers were produced by the Diamond team within their workshop.

With the basis sorted it was time for details, and a camo livery with bright blue accents was applied with the addition of an LED speedo in the cowl, LED tail lights and a hand built vintage ’70s gas tank.

This street ready cafe racer puts out 50 HP from the newly built engine and can be purchased from Diamond Atelier.
