Amazing Modern Cafe Racer by Taimoshan Cycle Works

This very well maybe be the perfect cafe racer from Taimonshan Cycle Works. This is a modern cafe racer design With a custom Norton Manx hand built frame, without swingarm or subframe the frame only weighs 7kgs so it super light. The engine is a 2004 Aprilia RSV1000 Factory V-Twin pushing out 143hp. The challenge that Taimoshan had with the Super cafe racer was how to squeeze a powerful, modern V-Twin, water cooled sportbike motor into an “open” tube frame and still make it look stunning. Based in the UK Taimonshan are at the top of there game when it comes to custom motorcycles and cafe racers.

Taimonshan said “Starting with a blank piece of paper it was my intention to create a bike to represent an iconic design from the 1960’s Glory years of the Ace Cafe, Isle of Mann TT, mods, rockers, black leather jackets and the best of the modern era with smooth fuel injection power, huge brakes, fancy suspension, light controls and razor sharp handling, the result was Taimoshan the “Super Cafe Racer”.”

I love how clean this bike is, everything has been hidden away, with electronics and engine management hidden i the tank. The polished tank and the cherry leather custom seat look sweet, they weren’t wrong when they called this thing a super cafe race. With the power from that big Aprilia RSV 1000 V-Twin along with the Honda CBR1000RR Unit pro-link rear suspension system this has everything that’s good with modern motorcycles shoe horned into a style that looks as cool as it did in the 60’s as it does now.
