A limited edition work of art by the “SkunkwerX” division

When Clews Competition Machines unveiled their Spitfire model last February, it made headlines all over the internet and received an insane amount of response from the riding folks. Within a short span of a year, this British marquee has proved well beyond conviction that it can make some of the most striking motorcycles the industry has seen.

CCM’s “SkunkwerX” division has unveiled a new Bobber variant of their new Spitfire range at the 2018 MCN London Motorcycle Show that concluded recently. The bike will use the same 600cc single pot mill that does the job on all the Spitfire models including the Scrambler, Café Racer, and the Flat Tracker.

Reminiscence of the Supermarine Spitfire, a British fighter aircraft from the times of World War II, the CCM Spitfire is the brainchild of a specialist division within the shackles of CCM called ‘the SkunkwerX team’. Designed over a bacon sandwich on their tea break, CCM let the ball rolling for multiple models over the next year based out of the same engine and chassis. Just like the multiple variants of the Supermarine Spitfire built using several wing configurations.

The newest member of the Spitfire range is the new Spitfire Bobber that comes with a stripped-back bobber styling but still carries the cues from the rest of the motorcycles in the range. This organic look comes courtesy of the single floating seat, swept back bars, slammed suspension and chunky white-walled tires that keeps the vintage affair going around in the air.

It shares a majority of the chassis and components with the original Spitfire model including the carbon-steel frame, adjustable WP suspension front, Brembo brakes, and the rear sub-frame. The frame is still hand-welded, and the blue residue is left untouched to depict a raw stature onto the bike. The sculpted fuel tank is also shared with the rest of the motorcycles.

Then there is the powerplant that makes use of the same Husqvarna TE630 motor used on all the other Spitfires. This fuel-injected, single cylinder, four-stroke mill produces a healthy 55 hp and 43 lb-ft of max torque. This is enough to make the 297 lb bike to feel like a rocket. The dual-pipe exhaust manifold gives the bike a proper Bobber visual cue. The same 6-speed transmission engages here as well.

Avon AV72 Cobra tires gets white walled

Avon AV72 Cobra tires get white-walled, wrapped around 16” lightweight wheels and get laced with the CNC billet hub to give sufficient grip to rip the road. The seat is now a floating poly bush damped made of full hide leather and the bike gets all LED treatment. The rear sees a springless nitrogen shock.

Be sure that CCM will also make this a limited edition affair of 150 units and will be priced under $10,000, just like the other Spitfires.
