Yea, I guess it is a thin line between the two of them.

These ninja frames and two cylinder engines seem perfect to build a café racer (am i the only one seeing it?)

By the way, just saw the amazing work you did there! Congratulations

It doesn't have the double cradle frame and horizontal subframe of the classic-looking cafe racers, so I'm having a hard time picturing something other than a modern naked/streetfighter, but I'd be interested to see what you come up with.

thanks, this ptwin motor is simple and compact, easy to build around. if you want a little more performance, the ptwin in the LSL bike was dynoed at 87HP.

as far as cafe, i think you could do it with some thoughtful design. the 636 front with clipons would swap right in. rearsets are already available.

Couldn't find any café transformations, but found this sketch:

It's tough to pull off a water cooled cafe. But that's just my opinion.

Is that a sketch ? Looks like a real bike to me. This would be a super easy build and it looks pretty cool.

Yep. Light bikes are always more funner-er.

Probably true... To be honest, looks prettier to me than the traditional café racers!

if you use this platform, the ptwin with either the Versys or ER6 frame, for a street bike build, the idea is to showcase that motor...don't hide it like is necessary with an offroad bias bike where you include protection, like bars and gravel guards.

that motor sitting in a minimalist frame is impressive, and it's hard to go wrong if you have a cohesive design concept.
