- Original Naked Roadster: Motorcycles in standard conditions as a two seater vehicle
- Sport Cafe Racer: Motorcycle made into a single seat, with the seat cowl racing-style motorcycle
- Muscle Cafe Racer: Motorcycle is made ”Tailess” that the muscle becomes feels
- Tourer Roadster: Motorcycle made into a comfortable height, and can be used as an adventure vehicle
