Suzuki Van Van

For the reasons given in an article on visordown, the Suzuki Van Van 125 is quite possibly the best bike to start out on. It's light, easy to handle and not too powerful. It also happens to have style and charm in abundance.

Unfortunately you won't find this particular colour scheme in the catalogue, but there are still some pretty swish ones to mull over. Suzuki don't often produce interesting colours; it's usually the standard red/blue/white or plain black. However, the retro dual-lines on the tank and the brown option for the Van Van really is quite refreshing.

Technically I guess this one wasn't too difficult in the end. Bit tricky when it came to deciding which details to keep in there and which ones to take out though. Sticking to block colours was definitely a good choice as it leaves it sharp and simple. I'm also pleased the silhouette of the engine and bike-guts takes a nice shape and doesn't just look like an unfinished part of the picture.

Now I just have to figure out how I'm going to use it.
