Motorcycle News (UK) - - This Week -

CCM have ex­panded their newly cre­ated Spit­fire model line to in­clude a new Café Racer vari­ant. The Café Racer shares the same engine and chas­sis as the orig­i­nal Spit­fire but it has clip-on han­dle­bars, racier rearsets, low slung ex­hausts, a stubby rear mud­guard and a longer seat with cowl. The cen­tre­piece of the Spit­fire range is a 600cc sin­gle cylin­der engine that gen­er­ates 55bhp and 43ftlb of torque. Even with a hand­made steel frame, the Café Racer has a claimed dry weight of just 125kg, which means it should have a grin in­duc­ing ride.

The Spit­fire range has been hugely suc­cess­ful for the Bolton-based man­u­fac­tur­ers with the first model sell­ing out the 100-bike pro­duc­tion run in a mat­ter of weeks. Like the Scram­bler, 250 Café Rac­ers will be made avail­able for sale with pro­duc­tion sched­uled for later this year. The Café Racer is on sale now for £9247 and if you want to see it in the flesh, CCM are tak­ing the Spit­fire range up the hill at the Good­wood Fes­ti­val of Speed.

Stripped-back and ooz­ing cool, the CCM Cafe Racer will be at Good­wood
