Vinco Motard KLX Prototype

Recommended Posts

Just wanted to show you guys a new KLX prototype we have been working on. The bike with the pictured setup is a prototype and was built for Chase Perry out of Virginia. On this bike are some Motard 50's billet wheels built for Kenny out in Michigan. We are toying with the idea of a true street legal KLX with true Ducati styling on the lights and of course the billet wheels. This is just the beginning.

The bike features::

Showa front end kit w/6 piston calipers

Stratos El Jefe Shock w/adjustable rebound and compression

Vinco Rear end kit w/chome swingarm and 4 piston Grimeca calipers

Porsche Titanium gray frame w/Monster Energy graphics

143 cc Kitaco Superhead kit w/kitaco cam

26mm TB carb and intake kit

polished cases

Hydraulic clutch kit w/4 speed transmission

Universal Solex bars w/Scott Kawi green grips

CHP shifter

Dr. D Exhaust

Michelin Starcross tires w/Spokesavers and aluminum wheel and hub

oversize pegs

We will be using the bike as the basis for some upcoming ads and such and once again with the billet wheels this is just a prototype for now. We are working out details and will keep all of you posted.

Cool we just wanted to hear what people thought of a real road going KLX like this. It would be a blast on the street! We don't have any plans for a 5 speed but the 4 speed should be plenty

Best looking China bike out there. Probably cuz it's only half chinese I suppose. lol.

I want those Showa's. Where do you buy them? I want them next day aired to me... today.

Seriously, those Showa's in LV's link look sick.

Some clarification. The Showa's are a custom Showa based off the bigger Showa's. On our KLX they sit exactly as tall as the Marzocchi's or the KLX 65 forks so other than the fact that noone else is using them there is nothing wrong here.

And yeah the bike is made in the US! We are trying to limit the amount of Chinese parts we use on our bikes especially the KLX's. But on this particular bike we fabbed everything here.

For a full run down on what we do to the forks go to our site or check threads at PM. We aren't trying to sell them here yet but there is a calculated history to them and a science behind their development.

We are going to start sponsoring the forums here so you will see more of us soon. Just wanted to show some pics of Chase's bike.
