MotoMorphic JaFM#1: Built to be a bit different…


The MotoMorphic JaFM#1. Looks totally cool, eh?
Pics: MotoMorphic
This is MotoMorphic's first prototype motorcycle, the JaFM#1, which we found on Oliepeil. MotoMorphic founder, Jim Davis wanted to make bikes that were a bit special, and it looks like the JaFM#1 fits the bill.

Details on the bike are scant, but it seems the MotoMorphic JaFM#1 is based on an Aprilia Falco. With, of course, extensive modifications. The chassis is made of 6061-T6 tubing and CNC machined billet 6061, the swingarm is custom-made, the front fork is an Ohlins item, the rear shock is Penske and the brakes are Brembo units.

We think the bike looks pretty interesting. Will post more pics and details as they become available.

We don't know how the bike will steer with that front tyre, but at least there should be no lack of grip at the front...
