The custom bike experts at K-Speed has taken the iconic Honda Super Cub from retro moped to aggressive cafe racer. Take a look at their amazing ‘K-Storm’ re-design below!
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,. However, 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. As a result, it’s now 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 improve 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 look absolutely beautiful together with the glossy carbon covers.
The K-Storm looks a lot more muscular than the standard model which is mainly due 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) engine. Therefore, the air-cooled single-cylinder four-stroke engine with a four-speed transmission still delivers 8 horsepower and 6.3 lb-ft (8.5 Nm) of torque.
