From Japan: Honda CB750 Café Type Motorimoda

The perfect retro-styled cafe racer...

Straight from the streets of Japan, this Honda CB750 Café Type Motorimoda is our kind of retro-styled café racer, even if it does have a very long name. With styling borrowed from 1970s endurance racers, the Type Motorimoda, designed by one Shinichiro Arakawa, is fitted with a standard CB750’s carburetted, air-cooled, four-cylinder engine. With a replacement exhaust system and careful tuning, power output is a claimed 20bhp up on the stock CB, which means it’s probably around 85bhp now.

With its handmade aluminium fuel tank, custom fabricated 4-2-1 exhaust system and long list of carbonfibre parts, the CB750 Café Type Motorimoda weighs 220 kilos – 15kg less than a stock CB750. We think the bike looks totally cool, though at 2.7 million Yen (US$29,700), it’s certainly not cheap! More details on the Motorimoda website here
