A Rouser Like no Other: Kawasaki Rouser Street Fighter
Date posted on July 22, 2019
One of the popular motorcycles in our country is the Kawasaki Rouser. Once it blasted through the Philippine market, Pinoys were instantly hooked. There’s something about naked bikes that really strikes a chord in Filipino riders because it exudes masculinity and a sense of bravado.
The Rouser is not an easy bike to modify as there are no ready-made aftermarket parts to fit the bike. If you want your Rouser to stand out, you must undergo the painstaking process of custom-machining and fabrication to get the look that you want.

That’s what Robert Olivares did for his bike. Robert is an SPA receptionist by trade but he has a deep fascination for naked bikes and the European street fighter bikes. Once he got his Rouser 220, he had a lot of ideas he wanted to integrate into his bike. There were no ready-made aftermarket parts and accessories for the Rouser so he had to custom-make everything to fit his bike. He really wanted the bike to look aggressive and he wanted it to be agile. Eventually, he pursued the street fighter naked bike look.
