K-Speed’s Custom Super Power Cub Is What 2018 Honda Super Cub Should Be

We saw the 2018 Honda Super Cub. TBH, we are hardly impressed, but this one here, a custom by K-Speed, is a whole new ball game. It made us wish the 2018 Honda Super Cub launched recently in Thailand did actually looked like this. I mean, seriously, Honda should be looking to K-Speed to design their Cubs. Period. I am sure the cafe racer style will appeal to many bike enthusiasts. Anyways, this stunning Super Cub (dubbed Super Power Cub) you see here was the result when Honda roped in Thailand-based K-Speed to create a custom version to mark the launch of the new model. Now, come on, tell me that you guys aren’t even a bit impressed. Continue reading K-Speed’s Custom Super Power Cub Is What 2018 Honda Super Cub Should Be

Heroes Motors Restored Rare Majestic Bike, Restores Our Faith In Classic Bikes

One of human greatest trade (or not) is the ability to imitate. Just look around you. Don’t everything you see today, from automobile to motorcycle to smartphone, looks pretty much the same? Just look at motorcycles. There’s nothing radical from bikes to bikes. While they appeared to be different due to some design tweaks, they are very much the same. The full tank is always up front, most will have fairing, and nearly similar frame and swing arms. In short, they are actually based on the same design we saw since the beginning of the history of motorcycles.

Behold, The World’s Best Looking And Fastest Pizza Delivery Motorcycle!

What’s your impression of a pizza delivery bike? Probably ‘boring as hell’ because, it is. But that is before you have seen the Turbo Hero Extreme, a pizza delivery motorcycle based on Indian-made Hero Xtreme 150-turned-drag racer. Well, I guess that would make it a drag-racing pizza delivery bike, wouldn’t it? This particular attractive bike was the masterpiece from Dubai-based VR Customs and an entry to Dubai’s Bikers Cafe 3rd Build Off Competition, an annual event where three brand new motorcycles are given to local customizers to see who can came with the most brilliant custom. Not surprisingly, Turbo Hero Extreme is a winning entry. Continue reading Behold, The World’s Best Looking And Fastest Pizza Delivery Motorcycle!

Honda’s Iconic Cub EZ 90 Got Upsized In This Modern Homage Example

What you see here is scooter that is not quite a scooter. Underneath the custom body that (almost) completely concealed the innards is Honda’s quirky X-ADV, an “adventure scooter” (but not really quite). Yep. It is in fact a XXL size of the cult-classic from the 1990s, the Honda Cub EZ 90. From Italy custom bike maestro, Deus Milano, with some help from another Milan great, Kaos Design, this upsized “Cub EZ 90” is the homage to the original and yes, it is actually the X-ADV. The result is stunning and with a glance, you are transported back in time… to 1991. Continue reading Honda’s Iconic Cub EZ 90 Got Upsized In This Modern Homage Example

Custom BMW C Evolution Scooter Looks Like A Ride From Apocalypse

What you see here is not a half-baked electric maxi-scooter C Evolution from BMW Motorrad. It is just Rolf Reick of Krautmotors giving the C Evolution the art of omission, which means it is intentionally left bare. That’s another level of industrial look there that gives it an apocalypse vibe. I like! The multidisciplinary customizer has taken the road less traveled when whipping his magic on the BMW Motorrad’s e-scooter, removing the original cladding and adding an old-school casing which leaves half of the bike’s internals in all its glory. Yes, only half, but that’s dope enough. Man, the old-school casing in matte black kind of add to the futuristic apocalypse look. Continue reading Custom BMW C Evolution Scooter Looks Like A Ride From Apocalypse

Makr’s Magic Touch Turns Mehmet’s K75 Alpha Concept Bike Into A Real Bike

Concept vehicles from big automakers turn into real vehicles are not new, but a concept vehicle from an independent industrial designer turned into a real working vehicle? Well, that is something we don’t hear everyday. Such is exactly what happen to Istanbul-based industrial designer Mehmet Doruk Erdem’s radical BMW concept K75 Alpha. When skilled machinist, fabricator, tinkerer and an accomplished two-stroke tuner and Bonneville Salt Flats veteran Mark Atkinson, AKA Makr, caught eye of Mehmet’s K75 Alpha Concept Bike, he decided that bold beauty there is not entirely radical, and so he embarked on a journey to bring it to life. Continue reading Makr’s Magic Touch Turns Mehmet’s K75 Alpha Concept Bike Into A Real Bike

1930 Henderson-inspired Custom Honda Shadow Is Absolutely Fabulous

Some custom motorcycles are like superheroes. They are all guts and glory, but at the same time, they are as mysterious and elusive as the fictional cape/mask mankind saviours. The 1930 Henderson KJ Streamline-inspired Custom Honda Shadow 600 you see here is one of those awesome, heart-grabbing custom two wheelers. Inspired by the not-so-practical but highly revered 1930 Henderson motorcycle, this replica is apparently the masterpiece of a workshop in Vietnam. Now, that’s the thing. When it comes spectacular customs, Vietnam is probably the last place you expect to find one, but here we are, witnessing this majestic work of art and salivating over it. Continue reading 1930 Henderson-inspired Custom Honda Shadow Is Absolutely Fabulous

Leafy Savage Electric Motorcycle Is Juiced By Nissan Leaf’s Batteries

We have seen a fair number of creative electric motorcycles, but the Leafy Savage Custom Electric Motorcycle you see here tops all that we have see thus far. For starter, the bike was created mostly by one man, Matt Candler under his outfit called Night Shift Bikes, and perhaps more amazingly, it is a creation of a person who has no real background or whatsoever in bike building until 2006. Matt’s second ground up (and third) custom build is a serious head turner – thanks in part for the skeletal look and also the unmissable bulk at the center of the frame (not exactly idea, but looks cool anyways). What makes this Night Shift Bikes custom electric two-wheeler so unique is, it is essentially a mash up of an electric car and a fuel-guzzling motorcycle.

Steampunk-ish Jawa Sprint Motorcycle May Be The Thinnest Bike In The World

This is not a motorcycle blog and therefore, we can’t feature every damn motorcycles out there. Instead, we take on the ethos of ‘appreciating beauty’, only posting two-wheelers that’s new, fun or raises eyebrow. The Jawa Sprint Motorcycle by Germany bike customiser, Urban Motor, belongs to the latter and it is easy to see why. What draws us to it is obvious; it is has a very steampunk-ish fair to it and it is minimalist to the core. Seriously, you can’t get any minimal than this, unless it is a bicycle. The bike was created with Glemseck 101 in mind, where it will go head-to-head with a bunch of manufacturers and custom builders in the event’s inaugural Essenza sprint. Continue reading Steampunk-ish Jawa Sprint Motorcycle May Be The Thinnest Bike In The World

Swedish Engineer Created A Mind Crushing Ultimate Street Tracker

Humans tend to be inspired by others and when this ‘law of nature’ applies to the custom motorcycle scene, you have to admit that most custom bikes turn out looking pretty ordinary. Yes. I know it is weird. They are customs and should look like no other, but that’s how the way it is today. Perhaps, customising two-wheeler is much like fashion: whatever’s fashionable will be borrowed. That, plus regulatory laws kind of limits what customisers hope and want to achieve. However, one part time builder from Sweden Marcus Carlsson is determined not to be bounded by rules and sets out to create custom two-wheelers on his own terms. Yes. Probably the police will not be too amused, but who cares when this Honda Tracker look this awesome? Continue reading Swedish Engineer Created A Mind Crushing Ultimate Street Tracker
