A few months ago, Bill Webb’s Honda CBR1000RR almost melted our servers. The ‘café fighter’ conversion became one of the most popular bikes we’ve ever shown.
Bill’s an industrial designer by trade, and he hinted at a short production run of parts. That day has thankfully come, and the kit will soon be on sale.
The bike you see here is running the complete kit, which costs $2,999 and is available for pre-order now. The caveat: Bill needs $75,000 of orders before going into production.
The Huge Moto café fighter kit includes extremely sexy hardware: the levers, headlight and that extraordinary tail unit. Plus the bikini fairing, and mounts to relocate the ignition and speedometer.
If you just want the Tron-style tail unit, it’s yours for a dollar under two grand. That package includes billet aluminum seat-stays, an aluminum subframe with red ABS shell, the seat, and a taillight with integrated turn signals.
The NADA average retail price for a 2008-model CBR is just under $8,000. So for $11,000—plus a few evenings in the garage—you could build one of the most traffic-stopping customs around. And the bike will go as fast as it looks.
