CB750 Cafe Type Motorimoda

Honda CB750 custom motorcycle by Whitehouse and Motorimodo
One of the most consistent Japanese custom motorcycle builders is Whitehouse, famous for meticulous replicas of classic Japanese racebikes and recreations of the Mad Max “Kwaka” KZ1000. But Whitehouse’s main business is modern updates to the iconic CB750. For this latest model, the company has hooked up with hip Ginza retailer Motorimoda. The gorgeous CB750 Cafe Type Motorimoda is hand-crafted from aluminum and carbon fiber, and costs a surprisingly reasonable ¥ 2,500,000 (US$29,000). It’s not all show and no go, either: the engine has been reworked to boost power by 20bhp, giving it a healthy 90bhp or so. [Check this video to hear it in action.] If this doesn’t wet your whistle, Whitehouse has plenty more tempting CB750s on a standalone showcase website. Be warned though: once you’re there, it’s hard to leave.
