In addition to having a unique riding stance, cafe racer-style motorcycles are known for having a distinct chopped or stripped aesthetic that was popularized by rebellious Brit kids zipping around from cafe to cafe. Staying true to its roots — but with a modern twist — this design, dubbed the Honda Neo Fighter, by Arik Schwarz imagines the cafe racer of the distant future as being melded together from spare robot parts!
The wild looking result retains the low-handlebar look and short seat cowl admirers have come to appreciate, but adds in a laundry list of ultramodern innovations such as a solar tank, aluminum/helium frame, and adaptive brakes. Aesthetically, it looks just as mean (and certainly just as uncomfortable!) as you’d expect from a cafe racer.
