The Future of the Cafe-Racer

Above is a new concept of the Honda CB750 done by Igor Chak. The design is full of lines with sharp corners that make the bike look tough while still being aerodynamic and light.

The motorcycle is powered by a 750cc four cylinder liquid hydrogen engine. The engine is shorter in size and lighter compared to today’s 4 cylinder engines but makes more power and is more fuel efficient. The six speed dual clutch transmission puts the power to the ground. Some electronics that are included are electronic launch control, traction control, and ABS. Everything can be adjusted by the rider by the touch of a button.

The frame and body is a uni-body construction made of carbon-fiber, aluminum, and titanium. The rear sub-frame is actually the body too. The suspension is electro-magnetic just like a Ferrari and is updated every 1/10th of a second.

This motorcycle has an airbag and steering damper to maximize safety. Along with the traction control and ABS, this cafe-racer is safer that any motorcycle in production. Also, the computer has three different drive modes that include: economy, race, and standard. This lets you select how much power and which suspension settings to use depending on the type of riding you will be doing.

The rims have been designed to be more sleek and aerodynamic. They are made out of carbon-fiber to reduce the weight and increase the strength.
