The One-Off AlfaBeast Motorcycle: A Fusion of Power and Style

ONE-OFF - When it comes to motorcycle modification, enthusiasts often explore unconventional combinations to create unique and eye-catching rides. Imagine the fusion of a 2.5-liter V6 Alfa Romeo engine with a Kraft Tech hardtail frame. The outcome? An awe-inspiring motorcycle that not only boasts a powerhouse engine but also exudes a distinct bad-ass vibe.

Enter the Alfabeast, a masterpiece crafted by the skilled hands of Chris Barber from Crossbreed Cycles. Taking the 2.5 V6 engine with an impressive 156 hp output, Barber embarked on a journey to construct a motorcycle that defies norms. The challenge was to seamlessly integrate the substantial engine into the Kraftec frame without compromising the overall design and functionality.

The heart of the Alfabeast, the 156 hp Alfa engine, proudly takes center stage, flanked by six separate exhaust pipes arranged in pairs on both sides. A unique design choice that not only adds to the bike's aesthetics but also serves as a testament to the engineering prowess behind its creation. The air intake, boldly positioned on the fuel tank, further contributes to the bike's distinctive appearance. (All pictures taken from: MotorCrave)

Beyond its striking exterior, the Alfabeast incorporates essential features to ensure optimal performance. Water and oil radiators are strategically employed to keep the potent engine running cool under pressure. A Harley four-speed gearbox and kickstart mechanism add to the bike's vintage appeal, creating a harmonious blend of modern power and classic style.

To enhance its handling and stopping power, the Alfabeast borrows elements from the Kawasaki ZXR-750, utilizing forks and brakes from this renowned sportbike. The result is a motorcycle that not only captivates with its visual allure but promises an exhilarating riding experience, a testament to the meticulous craftsmanship invested in its creation.
