Rosso Corsa: Honda Cafe Racer Inspired by Ferrari

One collector wanted a truly unique two-wheeler to match his NART Le Mans racing Ferrari from 1965, but with the condition that is powered by Honda CB600F engine.
Art Henschell of One-Up Moto Garage had the right idea – a Ferrari motorcycle based on a Japanese machine, named Rosso Corsa.
The starting point in his work was the engine and ram of Honda CB600F Hornet from 2006, while the rear fork, the last shock absorber and the wheels of the VFR800 model.

“I chose the race-inspired single sided swing arm because of its track-based origins and the car-like rear wheel aesthetic,” Art said. “It also allowed me to tuck the twin pipes up behind the rear sets, so they don’t get in the way of a good corner lean.”
Art designed a new subframe and shock mounts, then plasma cut the final parts and assembled it. The frame and swing-arm were powder coated black, and the wheels gold.

Up front, shortened reverse forks from the CBR are placed, while a forward-shaped fuel tank, with a new seat behind it, is also advanced, which is also fully developed by Art.
As far as performance is concerned, the engine remained virtually unchanged, with some minor changes. Art opted for a 4-in-2 exhaust system of stainless steel, coupled with a pair of Lossa Engineering mufflers.
The electric system is upgraded, with the new lithium-ion Shorai battery and Motogadget change direction indicators.

Two rows of LEDs under the new seat have the function of the rear lights, but the front is an element that will attract you attention, and Art himself did it, taking care to fit into the overall theme.
The color is recognizable – Ferrari Rosso Corsa red, and the final detail is a hand-painted Ferrari sign on the rear fork, modified to include the One-Up logo on itself.
Here’s the idea for people from Maranello, if they ever decide on the production of motorcycles.
