The first thing that strikes you about the Voxan Cafe Racer is the meaty engine. It’s a 996cc, DOHC, 4 valves per cylinder four stroke, running fuel injection and an ignition map designed to promote smooth torquey, midrange power.
Running a dry sump, the Voxan engine has two oil pumps, one to move liquid from the oil tank under the seat, another to actually flow the lube around the 98mm X 66mm engine cases, via the tubular frame. The motor has a big radiator and cooling fan, plus a tiny oil cooler, located near the monoshock.
Some details on the bike, like the rearsets, the white faced clocks, or the massive 320mm Brembo brakes, help give the Voxan Cafe Racer a classy, business-like appearance. It looks like a bespoke, connoisseurs motorbike.
But other aspects of the bike, like its notchy gearbox, the occasionally splutter from the fuel injection on the over-run, or its dated looking fairing/headlight section, suggest that Voxan still has a way to go before a great number of bikers will be tempted to buy something this unique and rare.
