We’re kicking off with a slick Honda CX650 from Bulgaria. Plus a GSX restricted version from Suzuki France, and a surprising Ducati 750 F1 Bol d’Or duplicate.
Honda CX650 by Tossa R Customs primarily based on the Honda CX500 are two-a-penny, however we don’t see many utilizing its CX650 massive brother. That’s a disgrace, as a result of the 673cc variant is a significantly sportier bike, with 25% extra energy and a much wider torque curve.
Store boss Assen Zahariev intentionally averted researching earlier CX builds, preferring to begin with a clear sheet. The key work features a entrance finish swap utilizing Yamaha R6 forks, plus twin brake discs and floating calipers.
The exhaust system has been terminated just below the V-twin engine, lightening the visuals on the again. An ethereal subframe reveals the brand new rear monoshock, which sits simply behind a pair of free-flowing air filters.
The brand new tail unit additionally introduces a transparent line operating from the again via the cylinder heads and header pipes, accentuating the hunched-forward stance. And so as to add visible stability, the rear wheel has been fitted with light-weight moon discs.
It’s a intelligent trick, and a really trendy search for the CX650. In case your urge for food is whetted, contact Tossa R in Sofia in your personal model—they’re planning to construct a sequence of those bikes. [Via]

And on the current French GP, they launched a restricted version GSX-950.
We’re unsure what this bike is supposed to commemorate, nevertheless it’s most likely not Suzuki quitting the MotoGP championship on the finish of this season.
There will likely be fifty ‘R’ examples of the GSX-S950 constructed, and the workshop behind the scheme is AD Koncept of Pons—a well-regarded carrosserier moto. AD Koncept have raided Suzuki’s elements bins and accent catalogs, and made just a few discreet additional upgrades.
There’s an Akrapovič muffler, a brand new seat cowl, a radical headlight cluster, and new carbon fiber composite physique panels. The entire shebang is completed off with a brand new black-and-gold paint job.
The fee for this work is solely affordable: a €1,550 ($1,670) premium over the value of the common GSX-S950. We reckon these will likely be snapped up, they usually’ll most likely maintain their worth effectively in coming years. [Via]
