More about Shinya Kimura

Shinya Kimura, formerly known as the founder of « ZERO » or the so-called « ZERO Style » motorcycles,has launched his own workshop called « chabott engineering » in the city of Azusa, California in 2006. In his 25 year career in the motorcycle world, Kimura started his own small repair shop named Chabo in 1992, a year before he started ZERO in Japan. Chabo means « bantam rooster » in Japanese and, to Kimura, it means « back to basics ». With the rebirth of Chabott engineering (with the fancy double t’s),Kimura will continue his exploration of metal and rubber…or whatever…in new and different ways — not merely building custom motorcycles– but creating functional art by infusing his philosophy and aesthetic values into his sculpturally unique and rolling designs.
