The custom bike experts at K-Speed has taken the iconic Honda Super Cub from retro moped to aggressive cafe racer with their ‘K-Storm’ re-design.
K-Speed custom design
The Honda Super Cub turned 60 years old in 2018 and the year before, Honda reached an incredible milestone of 100 million units produced! The custom bike experts at K-Speed in Bangkok, Thailand has already made their own version of the retro moped, but with this re-build they have taken the design in a new direction in collaboration with Storm Aeropart.
The Honda Super Cub K-storm
The original and slightly odd looking moped has been completely changed into a stylish and cool looking bike with the appropriate name ‘K-Storm’! It still has its unique size and shape but K-Speed has managed to improved the look with additions like carbon fiber accents, sinister-looking disc wheels, telescopic front forks, a Diablo exhaust, and a newly-upholstered premium leather seat. The bronze and black paint scheme looks absolutely beautiful together with the glossy carbon covers.
The K-Storm looks a lot more muscular than the standard model thanks to the modified fork with shorter travel and an added shell – an effect that is also amplified by large section tires. The bike is also changed into a single-seater with the new saddle. No updates has been made to the 109-cc (6.65 cu-in) air-cooled single-cylinder four-stroke engine with a four-speed transmission that delivers 8 horsepower and 6.3 lb-ft (8.5 Nm) of torque.
