When Victor Komunytsky and Jim davis decided to build the MotoMorphic JaFM, they had to sacrifice their small repair shop and their small business of selling motorcycles in order to put more time and effort into building their beauty. This prototype makes you think of a Respingo when you first see it. The monstrous 250 mm wheel is enough to make heads turn and bring you all the attention you ever wanted. An Aprilia Falco which was baptized as the hellâ€™s pig was the guinea pig to test and try solutions as the tyre proved to be a problem. The next step was to build a multi tubular chassis and they chose an Ohlins fork, Brembo brakes and a couple of other things. The result was a beefy, all American, aggressive motorcycle that sure kept everyone at the motor shows gasping for breath.
