Vitium Moto is a workshop restless bunch of builders from Querétaro, Northern Mexico, that get together to create unique motorcycles which kick-off any trends or convention.  Their latest build certainly reflects that nonconformist attitude.

The donor bike is an off-road 2009 KTM 450 SMR that’s been stripped off of its competition plastics, gas tank, factory pipe, front guard and twin radiators.  A secondary subframe was crafted, as well as an original fuel tank, a new belly pan, and a superb retro-style cushioned seat was fitted, adding comfort and a nice contrast with the modern carbon fiber cowl.  Power is provided by a stock 450cc single cylinder engine breathing through a Keihin MX FCR 41 carburetor, while an Akrapovič exhaust helps with weight reduction and adds bark.

Other specs include a K&N filter, off-road Renthal bars with LED indicators, a Harley headlight, front forks and rear shocks with massive 280mm & 310mm of travel, Beringer front disc brake, rear Brembo disc and caliper, aggressive Shinko Trail Master E705 tires, and a Motogadget Vintage speedo.  Finished in a typical (and sleek) KTM colorway of orange, white and black.   via
