With all the hallmarks of a true custom bike, from the raw steel tank and Mutt tracker 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
RAW STEEL VIBE
The RS-13 follows the classic Mutt stylistic approach – retro styling and riding experience 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 Tracker 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 retro classic roots the RS-13 runs on 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 painted and finished here at Mutt HQ, hand rubbed and painted to create a unique raw effect, the tank is then clear coated to protect it 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 IN THE DETAIL
This dog features some finer details you might not notice straight away, but they sure set this beast apart from the competition. Black lightweight anodised aluminium parts in the form of super-neat new indicator brackets; a set of short rider and pillion pegs; and a drilled aluminium gear lever and shift peg.
Take a look at 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, the angular sump guard and matching rear master cylinder cover gives the bikes a lower-slung more aggressive look, Bruce Wayne would be proud of them.
The Mutt RS-13 250 is a machine built for both fun and stylish commuting, light enough to throw around the city and fast enough for hacking down the motorway or blasting the A roads. Two up riding is no problem for these little beauties. Fuel injection provides this thumper with smooth acceleration and full ABS provides solid stopping power.
