Troy Lee creates the Canyon Chaser

The Canyon Chaser should be just the thing for sliding around city streets and pulling a few wheelies and stoppies...

Troy Lee probably saw the Massimo Tamburini-designed Husqvarna STR 650 CC Supermoto, and decided to do one of his own. The result is this Honda CRF450R-based ‘Canyon Chaser’ concept bike, which Troy Lee (the man who owns Troy Lee Designs) has created. This streetfighter is based on the machine which Lee’s team races in the AMA Supermoto series.

Says Lee, ‘I'm an artist at heart and I love to create cool things. This project was my pursuit of the ultimate fun bike for in the city. This 450cc motocross/supermoto platform is the workhorse of the racing world, yet there is nothing on the street or in the showrooms at the moment that excites me more…’

The engine is from a Honda CRF450R, so the machine should always be reliable...
