Voxan aggressive scramblers by Motorieep

France was honored for being able to create a very tempting recipes, whether in the kitchen, the fashion house including in terms of automotive world, especially a custom motorcycles.

To celebrate their 20th anniversary this year and despite the challenge of competing against Japanese, Italian and British manufacturers as well as making it through a pretty deep recession, the company now offer more than just a quirky motorcycle; they’re forging ahead with a super-tech electric bike.

For now though we prefer the thump of a hydrocarbon burning motor and the heart of every Voxan is the stunning a 72° 996 cc V-twin designed by racing gurus Sodemo Moteurs.

Henri Pescarolo’s Le Mans LMP1 entries and the BTCC winning Renault Lagunas were powered by Sodemo engines, proving the pedigree.

However, Voxan’s Scrambler in stock trim isn’t exactly gorgeous and doesn’t do its wonderful engine justice. Enter stage left, Pierre from Paris based custom shop Motorieep.

Pierre did make over, to create a street scramblers and trackers are aggressive, so it looks flashy and draw the eye when walking. In order to get a form of motorcycle unsightly, then Pierre had to sacrifice form a thin fuel tank that can saves 10 liters of gasoline.

The engine might look mighty but thanks to shortsighted red tape producers new motorcycles sold in France since 1985 must not exceed 100 hp. Well, to improve the performance of the original engine, Pierre make improvements by removing the internal fuel pump, mounting a new high pressure version with adjustable regulator just below the tank.

The use of a new version of adjustable high pressure regulator, which is placed at the bottom of the tank, plus the stainless exhaust and as a result, the engine power boosted up to 115 hp. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | MOTORIEEP | THEBIKESHED]

When Vagabund conjured the BMW R100R

When the BMW R100R tourer was launched in 1991, many of which saw it as a strange motorbike because its design. Because it appeared with a half fairing design and windshield, also equipped with a boxed sidebox.

As the reverse, its boxer engine block design with a rounded engine head. Yet in its time, in addition to design tend to be closed, the engine block was designed boxes with inline configuration.

BMW is being tried retro design at that time. Like going back to the 1950s design. Despite many modern touches pinned on this motorcycle, such as the Showa suspension and the brake system with eight-piston calipers of Bosch and floating discs.

There's 40 mm Bing carburetor fed the engine and emission combustion afterburners, but still can be loaded with electronic diagnostic devices. And its boxer engine became the most advanced in the 69 years of BMW history. In general, its flat twin opposite horizontal engine or boxer influenced the motorcycle design into a retro.

Well, in the hands of Vagabund, an Austrian newly established customizer, the BMW R100R transformed into a flawless combination of café racer and scrambler. In fact, their design philosophy is simple, raised the essence and magic of classic motorcycles. Then created into a unique piece of art.

Here are several detailed pictures of Vagabund custom bikes. (All pictures taken from: http://on.fb.me/1YxE0bf)

Assessing the modification results on the BMW R100 R, Vagabund seems to work perfectly. Even the look of this bike from far was so special. Each strokes was clear, mutually enhanced in each corner.

Its fuel tank with two tone needs to be underlined, perfectly accentuate the space beneath. On the machine, each fin that appears silvery, from the header to the block, showing the level of craftsmanship that usually displayed by the veteran industrialist.

The headlights and the rear section were the other things that stand out. A smooth exhaust, and mirrors placed on the fork seem eccentric. It's look like Vagabund has found its style. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | VAGABUND | HIGHSNOBIETY]

The Brat

In the Thailand International Motor Expo 2015 event, Honda showed off a scambler motorcycle concept which has a quite frightening design.

Actually this is not a new motorcycle concept. A few weeks earlier this motorcycle has appeared with form is not full. Well, this time Honda did not hesitate to show off the original form that is enough to make my skin crawl.

Imagine, the design of this bike is actually suitable for off-road terrain as seen as its huge tires with a form identical to the off-road terrain. If true, then it's going to be amazing. No tail in the back, leaving only minimalist seat which makes it look selfish.

In spite of it all, as reported by the Morebikes on December 3, 2015 that the motorcycle is based on Honda CB500F. Honda called the motorcycle as 'The Brat'.
There is no detailed information related to its engine or other technical specifications. But at least it makes us all the more curious is not it? We look forward to just what this cool motorcycle going into mass production line. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | MOREBIKES]
