Bottpower XC1 Cafe Racer

Built upon an iconic Buell 2008 XB12SS, this Bottpower XC1 cafe racer’s design toes the line between a classic outfit and a futuristic street bike. This bike is the product of famed race engineer, David Sanchez who tours on the Superbike European Championship and, when not competing, runs an advanced custom shop in Valencia, Spain. The entire transformation here was kit-based, meaning Bottpower sells every component. It’s also designed to put together without the need to cut or weld anything, a bonus for any bike enthusiast. For this model, Sanchez retained the wheels, suspension, swingers and brakes of the original XB-series but removed the twin spar so that everything hangs off the steel backbone. Bottpower also switched out the front fender, headlight, foot pegs and triple clamps as well. The first model just recently shipped and Bottpower is willing and able to assemble additional models as they move forward with this project.

Ducati’s Draxter Concept Bike

A dream machine born from two different motorcycle modalities, Ducati’s Draxter concept bike is a beautiful beast. Built from the new XDiavel, a feet-forward, knees-in-the-breeze cruiser (the first of its kind for Ducati), the Draxter drops the casual part of the equation and takes its body design and component cues from the brand’s Panigale Superbike. With drag racing in its DNA, the Draxter is dressed out with the Panigale’s suspension and brakes while powered by the same 156 hp, Ducati Testastretta DVT 1262 engine that drives the XDiavel. The result is a one-off walk on the wild side emblazoned with the number 90 to commemorate Ducati’s 90th anniversary. The Draxter debuted in January at the Motor Bike Expo in Verona, Italy.

Gorgeous BMW Landspeeder by Revival Cycles

Texas based Revival Cycles created a bike inspired by Ernst Henne’s Landspeeder. The BMW R37 Racer was originally made in 1928 specifically for Henne, and he would go on to break multiple records on the bike during his career. This particular bike is built just for the showroom – but the team at Revival stuck to their founding principals and made a bike that is as functional as it is strikingly aesthetic. Using the R37 as a blueprint – the team lengthened the wheel base, dropped the engine lower in the stamped steel box frame, and gave the bike a magneto ignition system. This bike isn’t street legal – but is sure is gorgeous.

“Le Caffage”: Ducati 848 by Apogee Motorworks

Gustavo Pena of Apogee Motoworks builds extraordinary Ducatis that look like nothing else on earth. This is his latest creation, “Le Caffage” – a 2009-spec Ducati 848. Gustavo set out to design a bike that looks futuristic, but has elements of neo-classic style too. “As if Ducati produced a bike in 2050 paying homage to a bike from 2030,” he says. The design elements are very deliberate, dominated by an oversized gas tank with vintage café proportions. Gustavo has also modified the trellis frame to edge it closer to traditional lines, flowing into an minimalist but comfortable saddle. The twin exhausts – handcrafted in stainless steel – mirror the voluptuous curves of the upper bodywork. But the most attention-grabbing aspect is the headlight, an aggressively lidded design that also houses the speedo and adds an air of menace to the machine. The 848 engine has been heavily upgraded with NCR parts, including titanium valves, a slipper clutch, and a full set of titanium bolts and fasteners. The pistons are from Ferracci and the titanium connecting rods are from Pankl. South of the radiator is more carbon fiber, this time a belly pan that shrouds the oil cooler and lower part of the engine. Many other parts have been powder coated and then treated to a ceramic coating on top—including the entire trellis frame, the swingarm, rear sets and the forged Marchesini racing wheels. Both wheels are shrouded with custom carbon huggers. And the name “Le Caffage”? It’s a neologism, a made-up word alluding to the café style, and came out of a conversation between Gustavo and a French friend.

Confederate G2 P51 Combat Fighter

The Alabama-based bike makers Confederate Motorcycles have recently formalized the release of their new monstrous streetfighter, the G2 P51 Combat Fighter. This head turning 2-wheeler is constructed entirely out of 6061 aerospace billet aluminum, and packs a mean punch to match its aggressive aesthetics. Powering the chopper is a big-block, air-cooled V-twin engine that’s good for over 200 horsepower, along with 170 lb-ft of torque. The bike has also been outfitted with a 5-speed overdrive and straight cut transmission. Each one sits on lightweight carbon fiber wheels wrapped in road-gripping Pirelli tires. The brand will be producing a total of 30 black and 31 raw machined billet aluminum, for a total of 61 bikes – all carrying a price tag of $120,000.

Custom Bike Production-R by Thunderbike

The people at Thunderbike have come up trumps again with this astonishing new motorcycle. The bike is based on a handmade frame-kit by Thunderbike released in 2014. As for aesthetics, its as muscular as they come without the frills, baring its Harley Davidson Screamin Eagle Twin Cam 110 engine completely in the buff. Height adjustable with the touch of a button to control air-ride suspension, its also as smooth on the streets as it looks. The Engine & Transmission are made by Harley-Davidson, so even though it is a luxury product, you don’t have to worry about getting service around the world. The wheel diameters are 21 & 26 inches. For the rear tire Thunderbike needed to team up with Metzeler (Pirelli) to create a special 260/35/21 tire. One more special on the bike is the front-end (fork), which was created in a small series also for original Harley-Davidson bikes.

The Bandit9 Eve Motorcycle

EVE is the latest design from Bandit 9 Motorcycles. Anyone who’s ever been to Vietnam, or pretty much anywhere else in South East Asia, will immediately understand the importance of the motorcycle to the local residents. EVE is based on a 1967 Honda SS, with an engine capacity ranging from 90cc to 125cc. These Hondas are very common on the streets of cities like Saigon and Hanoi, making them an ideal starting point for a new line of customs. Each model is rebuilt by hand and fitted with classical brass instruments and a hand-formed chrome body gives the bike an almost steampunk appeal. The price tag is $6000 – 7000 USD.

1966 Honda P25 Security Camera – Chicara Nagata

Among tens of creative custom bikes that we’ve featured on the pages of our website there wasn’t such unique and unusual as this one. Elegant and minimalist bike is the art work of Japanese renowned motorcycle builder/artist Chicara Nagata. “Every project, I encounter many, many problems. I can’t count how many times I give up to make motorcycle. But I noticed that, ‘If we don’t give up, we can make it.’ In another words, we can make the impossible … possible. This is what I learn from making motorcycles, but still on the way.” – Chicara.

Futuristic Bike “Detonator” by Daniel Simon

The Cosmic Motors Detonator is an unique concept created by German automotive futurist Daniel Simon for his futuristic vehicle design company, “Cosmic Motors”. Simon calls this futuristic bike a “street cruiser bike built for humanoid droids.” Simon obtained his degree in vehicle design in 2001 at the University of Applied Science in Pforzheim, Germany. After completion, Simon went to Barcelona and designed concept cars for Bugatti and Lamborghini, followed by five years at the VW Group’s Advanced Studio where he is currently designing virtual vehicles for his brand Cosmic Motors. He has published a book, “Comic Motors” and continues to offer his services to premium carmakers while designing his own concepts.
