Motolite slightly veered from battery production as it recently revealed the Moto-Art custom bike, an old Honda XRM 110cc motorcycle modified to pay tribute to a Japanese motorcycle designer, Chicara.
The Honda XRM was refurbished by Hardcore Brothers into a fully-functional performance and show while retaining its engine and stock Honda parts for the cases, heads, cylinders, carburetors and transmission.
Mods came in the form of a more rigid chassis as well as with wider front and rear tires. The bike's swing arm was also extended four inches while Buell triple trees were installed with an extra five-degree out for a longer rake.
"The solo saddle with bicycle springs as well as the kick starter were fabricated for an old-school look, while all-over chrome finishing gave the Motolite Moto-Art its distinctive flashy finish," Motolite said.
The Moto-Art bike, which now is now equipped with a Mity Mike exhaust and Drag Specialties headlights, took close to two months to complete.
"Our objective in this customization was to showcase ingenuity and innovation in transforming something ordinary into a work of art, while at the same time showing how our Motolite motorcycle battery is at the heart of the motorcycle's engine and accessories," Motolite product manager Melissa Valdez said. "We are very proud of out Motolite Moto-Art custom bike because it is not only a thing of beauty, it is also a roadworthy performance bike which you can ride all over the Philippines."
The Moto-Art bike will be displayed in future motorcycle events.
