How RYCA used augmented reality to design a cafe racer






A decade ago, the Californian outfit RYCA Motors cracked an almost impossible code: they figured out how to turn the Suzuki Savage into a good-looking cafe racer. Then they made a kit so garage builders could do the same, using just basic tools and skills.
It was a big success, and they?re now celebrating their tenth anniversary with a new ‘CS-1X’ kit that was designed using augmented reality. It?s an approach we?ve never heard of before, and quite intriguing.

In case you?re not familiar with AR, it allows you to superimpose 3D elements on top of real-world objects.
RYCA founders Ryan Rajewski and Casey Stevenson are fans of the tech, and have big plans for using it. It was Casey who first got the idea to combine AR and motorcycles a few years ago: when remodeling his house, he used basic AR apps from furniture retailers, and was impressed by how useful they were for visualizing ideas.

?I called my friend Yohan Baillot?now our CTO?who is a true pioneer in the field of AR,? he says. ?I told him I had been using the IKEA app, and asked him if we could do something with motorcycles. We built our first AR prototype based on a Ducati Scrambler, and it turned out great.?
?We got the ?virtual? parts to just snap right on, like magic. So when it was time to build a tenth anniversary edition of the CS-1, we wanted to use AR in practical, realistic ways. To prove it?s not a novelty or a toy.?

Casey and Ryan wanted to maintain the general aesthetic of their original kit, but take it up a notch. Starting with a 2006-model Suzuki Savage (also known as the Boulevard S40), they prototyped the CS-1X with a mix of existing and new parts. ?On a typical day, Ryan would come up with a design idea, and I would piece together a 3D model of the concept,? says Casey. ?We?d use AR to ?see? it on the bike, in full context, then either go with it, or move on to something else. It?s the most fun we?ve ever had designing and building a motorcycle.?

One of the biggest departures from the original RYCA kit is the fuel tank. The original setup uses the Suzuki’s stock tank, but the CS-1X uses a new, bolt-on upgrade. The 2.4 gallon steel shell is supplied by an external vendor, and then modified in-house with a new tunnel and mounts that are specific to the Savage.
On this prototype, Ryan also had the tank polished and triple chromed by Brett at Cal-Tron Plating Inc. (Brett handled the satin chrome and nickel plating on the rest of the bike too.)

Next up was the CS-1X’s unique ‘double barrel shotgun’ exhaust and intake. ?I wanted to create something a bit different this time around,? says Ryan, ?so I designed a ram air style intake that crisscrosses and runs parallel to the tightly tucked mid-exhaust. It?s a stylish and functional system that looks and sounds awesome.?
For the Suzuki’s tail section, RYCA went with a fully upholstered version of their current cafe-style seat design. Ryan then made up a new set of side covers...
