Brat Style handlebars
Reading time: 3 minutes.
The brat style bikes are also known by the term Japan Style, since it was in the country of the rising sun where this classic-looking aesthetics originated. They can come to resemble the English Café Racer movement of the 50s, especially in size, although in the case of the Brat bike not only a performance is sought, but also can be handled comfortably by the urban areas, favoring at the same time a pleasant riding on the road.
This is a recurring style for those who seek to prioritize comfort and a daily use of the motorcycle. It is for this comfort that we can highlight the role of the Brat Style handlebar and observe how they have been stripped of many elements that can be considered unnecessary, with the intention of achieving a purer and lighter result.
Styles of Brat handlebars
As we have said before, this style has an influence on the Café Racer motorcycles but also includes some of the characteristics of the American Bobber style. Both streams of inspiration for the BratStyle are very different between them, but also add their own details. This fact makes it a 100% custom style by itself.
Brat Style motorcycles are characterized by being low-rise, so the suspensions are usually lowered to achieve a more balanced structure on the motorcycle. The wheels take center stage with wider tires and spoke wheels. These wider tires give the possibility of improving the driving sensation to prioritize the comfort of the rider.
Continuing with the minimalist tendency of the style to get rid of the unnecessary things, the headlight is usually of a smaller diameter than in other categories, and incorporates a quite elongated flat two-seater; It is also common to skip the use of cowl. The Brat Style handlebar has a higher height since this style does not enhance aerodynamics like others, but the most important thing is to improve comfort while riding. It is precisely this that makes it an ideal motorcycle for the urban environment, with better handling and stability.
