c.2012 Kepspeed KP36 150cc Monkey Bike
Frame no. 1P56FMJ-91381109
Founded in 2008, the Kunshan Kepspeed Metal Company Ltd of Jiangsu, China is a firm specialising in the production of custom aluminium components for 'monkey' bikes, including frames, swinging arms, fork yokes, wheels and even complete machines such as that offered here. Looking like a miniaturised Vyrus or Bimota Tesi, this amazing little motorcycle features a perimeter 'frame' made up of bolted-together CNC-machined aluminium plates that support the horizontally inclined 150cc overhead-camshaft four-stroke engine. The latter produces 9.8kW (13.1bhp) which is good enough for a (claimed) top speed of 130km/h (81mph). Other noteworthy features of this stunning little gem include a girder-type front fork, single-sided swinging arm, mono-shock rear suspension, folding handlebars, oil cooler and disc brakes with radial front calliper. The machine has not been used and is presented in 'as new' condition. It should be noted that it is highly unlikely that this Kepspeed has been granted Type Approval in the EU and thus the vehicle is sold for display or private roads use only. Alternatively, it would make an exciting supermoto-style track day tool and is sure to be a real hoot through Cadwell's Hall Bends.
