Honda CB Superstrada, the Classified Moto Way
text size: A- A+
Having already showed that limits are only a convenience item with their breathtaking Virago, Classified Moto now wet on and blended the classic CB with the sporty street aggression of the Yamaha R6 and veiled everything in a post-modern shroud of cafe-racer allure.
Starting off with an '80 CB750F, the actual Superstrada received a whole new front end, sourced from an YZF-R6, including wheel, fork, and controls. A custom Classified triple tree keeps everything in place, providing the right stance of a sport machine.
The rear comes from a Ducati 1098: the whole swingarm replaced the stock unit, and the massive Showa monoshock now shines menacing in the huge negative space under the new custom subframe.
There is no other piece of bodywork save for the standard tank and two custom nickel-plated side panels which make a nifty visual transition from the flowing, mellow lines of thee tanks and the pointy, aggressive tail section.
A digital gauge replaced the instruments and a miniature tail light now adorns the sporty rear cowl. We loved the brutal MotoGP-style Vance & Hines 4-into-1 exhaust and short-profile silencer, adding even more character to this unexpected, but absolutely lovely apparition. Seen on BikeEXIF.
