Sacrificing comfort for the sake of style is a common oversight of custom motorcycle building. It’s no secret that certain aspects of cafe racer styling aren’t all that practical when applied to motorcycles that are destined for everyday use. If you’re a daily commuter, or perhaps a little older, comfort should be king, so sometimes it’s important to make compromises to achieve that goal.
At the Spanish workshop of Octane Motorcycles Iñaki Bellver and his business partner build practical motorcycles engineered for everyday use. Working full-time as engineers the duo build their bikes after hours and this Honda CBF600N is their latest achievement.
