South Paw Motorcycle By Deux Ex Machina

The Honda VTR 250 is not normally associated with flat track racing. Until now, thanks to a transformation made by Deus Ex Machina. South Paw is the result of works based on a series of 1:1 sketches with body shaped by hand before being formed in a carbon fiber, woven glass and epoxy to mimic modern flat track racers.

The front end of the bike is left mostly untouched, but the modification of the rest of the bike is overly complicated. To simplify, the rear was replaced by a cantilevered fuel cell formed from a mix of carbon fiber with woven glass and epoxy resin. This new tail end serves as a subframe and base for the seat himself upholstered in graphite alcantara with a neat burnt orange accent stitch matching the paint job.

South Paw rolls on a pait of 17” Excel alloy racing wheels (4.5 inch in the rear and 3” up front) laced to Honda hubs and wrapped with Metzeler Sportec M7 RR tires. Braking is via an uprated 320mm front disc and a mix of Nissin and Brembo components. If you had any doubt of its intention as a flat track racer, a combination aluminum number board and LED headlight signs the front of the bike, Exhaust headers are stainless steel paired to silencer cans. Speedo is from MotoGadget. Unveiled at the Tokyo Motorcycle Show.

    This is not a flat track racer at all.
    Road tires, headlight, tall seat…
    Why not just call it a custom streetbike?

    While we are talking about flat track bikes. Kawasaki put an end to the Indian winning streak. 1st, third, fourth etc.

    Gotta agree not exactly a dirt tracker maybe a canyon crusier got some ducati/buellness/super motard going for it, does have a Flat track bend on bars though, that 250 probably more motor than most wannabes could handle

    Just bought à Kawasaki Vulcan S 650. Engine is based on the ninja 650. Rode hd for years and looked at the 750 street, Yamahas, and Honda’s. Nice bike, the 650. Some cheap stuff on it but the basic platform is solid . At seven grand it ‘s a steal.
