You know what’s really getting popular lately?

Small bikes – and despite the growing number of electric machines, old faves like the Honda Grom and Kawi Z125 PRO are still tearing up the asphalt – both on and off track. 

Naturally, the custom industry has a special place for small-capacity builds – and this iconic unit from the think tank of Thailand-based K-Speed is no different. 

I mean, look at the thing.

Christened the “Daxxer,” K-Speed took a Honda Dax 125 donor bike and lowered the suspension. 

Adding a one-off stretched swingarm brought a whole new meaning to the term ‘lean and mean,’ with the clip-on handlebars and special saddle keeping the build firmly in the cafe racer category.

Other additions include K-Speed’s own seal – moving the LCD bits to the side – as well as rear set footpegs and custom shocks / dual springs / free-flow exhaust / wheels, all of which pull the bike’s personality in perfectly.

Dress the whole thing in a handmade LED and a bright coat of yellow paint showing off the label ‘Diablo,’ and you’ve got yourself a fun, urban-centric ride with the original engine and a whole new level of aesthetic.

Unfortunately, it sold almost as fast as it took to debut – but K-Speed has a veritable library of parts to do the done deed yourself. 

They’ll even make another Daxxer for you and ship it, though you should budget around $6,800 USD plus extra to get it to you from Thailand.
