The latest edition to the Mutt family is the RS-13 250cc and what a little ripper it is. With all the hallmarks of a true custom bike, from the raw steel tank and Renthal bars to the fat nobbly tyres the Mutt RS-13 just shouts homebrew custom bike, but the simple beauty of this bike is that we build it for you, all you gotta do is ride. As with all our motorcycles the RS-13 is true to Mutt form, lightweight, stripped down and cooler than a polar bears P. J’s
The RS-13 follows the classic Mutt stylistic approach - retro styling and riding experience with with modern reliability and ease of operation. The 250 cc air cooled single cylinder is housed in our tubular twin shock frame and is slightly bigger with a longer swingarm compared to our 125's and of course the 250 has a lot more grunt, a perfect machine for carving up inner city traffic or just as at home slamming through the twists and turns of the countryside. Running narrower Renthal handlebars for an upright aggressive riding position, it’s perfect for hacking through the city traffic and that super bright halogen headlight lights up the road ahead with ease from behind the matt black grill. Keeping to a retro classic roots the RS-13 runs either 17" or 18" wheels front and rear shod with classic style deep tread fat nobbly tyres. Short black rear shocks and wide yokes with telescopic forks keep the bike firmly planted on the tarmac.
NO TWO THE SAME
For rider comfort and retro vibe, it has diamond pattern black grips and a choice of black diamond pattern black seat or a distressed tan tuck n roll seat. In true Mutt style we’ve fitted all black wheels with black spokes, flat black aluminium mudguards and of course our neat little black LED aluminium tail light and LED indicators. The crowning glory of this little thumper is without doubt that raw steel tank, each tank is hand finished here at Mutt HQ, each tank hand rubbed each tank to create a uniform finish, the tank is then clear coated to prevent rusting and the final black stripe applied with our Mutt logo. Due to the way this hand finished process is carried out each and every tank is that little bit different to it's brother, each RS-13 is a true custom, no two are identical. But how does it sound? Well, if you are a Mutt fan you will know that all our bikes have a healthy low down rumble and the RS-13 is no exception, our black heat treated stainless steel exhaust and silencer barks like only a Mutt can.
All new Mutt’s have few little subtle upgrades that you may not notice at first but take a closer look and you'll see some nifty little touches you won't see on other bikes.
First off, we have new LED indicators hewn from a solid block of aluminium by the process of CNC and mounted on a machined stainless steel arm. We’ve also now got machined aluminium headlight brackets too, that set up makes for a pretty tidy front end.
Moving back a bit we get to the handlebar clamps, we now have fully CNC'd clamps coated in a super durable hard anodised black finish.
As always with Mutt Motorcycles we use the skills we learned building one off custom motorcycles and machined aluminium is one of those cool processes that gives a motorcycle a true custom look. Machined fork caps and head stem nut, once again coated in a beautiful anodised finish, combined with the new speedometer surround this provides a beautifully finished view when glancing down at your speed.
One of our favourite new touches requires a bit more scrutiny, kneel down and take a look at the motor, we have a new CNC oil filter cap but look a little closer and you'll see some new machined valve covers on top of the engine reminiscent of 60's and 70's Brit bikes. That’s a little detail not everyone sees straight away but we like it.
Finally, we get to the chunky little posterior of a Mutt and you'll see four beautifully machine CNC nuts holding the rear shocks on.
We've also been busy with some sheet metal work, we've designed a brand new angular sump guard and matching rear master cylinder cover giving the bikes a lower slung more aggressive look, Bruce Wayne would be proud of them.
