Built without interruption since 1958 in a production run that has exceeded the 100 million mark in 2017, the Honda Super Cub is the most produced motor vehicle in history.
It is an icon instantly recognizable around the world, especially in Asia which gets the largest chunk of the model’s global sales. Bridging the gap between scooters and motorcycles, the Super Cub has inspired the folks from Thailand’s K-Speed to built a custom version.
Looking at the photos, one can definitely say their custom K-Storm creation is a fantastic homage to the humble Super Cub. Just check out the “before and after” photos in the gallery and you’ll realize the extent of the changes compared to the original.
The custom bike experts managed to make the Super Cub 110 look more aggressive and akin to a cafe racer while still retaining the motorcycle’s unmistakable shapes.
The front end features a telescopic fork with shorter travel covered by a shell that makes the Super Cub look more muscular. The effect is amplified by large section tires. The Thailand-based tuner has fitted a one-person saddle, effectively turning the K-Storm into a single-seater.
By now you must have noticed that the wheels ditched spokes for carbon covers in a glossy finish that complement the K-Storm’s bronze and black paint scheme rather well.
No mechanical changes were made, which means this is an “all-show-and-no-go” type of tune — but a gorgeous one at that. The K-Storm retains the Super Cub 110’s 109-cc (6.65 cu-in) air-cooled single-cylinder four-stroke engine that works with a four-speed transmission and makes 8 horsepower and 6.3 lb-ft (8.5 Nm) of torque.
