Despite the fact the company started out by selling rebadged versions of Chinese-made bikes, Brixton Motorcycles has since branched out into designing its own unique two-wheelers. And after delivering several different variants of its Crossfire model, Brixton has now treated the platform to its most comprehensive redesign to date, using the half-liter donor to create a futuristic adventure bike concept known as the Crossfire Storr 500.
On top of being Brixton’s first-ever adventure bike, the concept also represents the first model Brixton has had penned by Austrian design firm RiDE GmbH. Taking its name from the rock formation on the Isle of Skye in Scotland, the Crossfire Storr 500 puts a sleek and modern spin on traditional adventure bike designs, with a tapered take on a front navigation tower that’s book-ended by hands-guards on either side and a set of projector-style auxiliary lights embedded into the front fairing. A first aid kit has been mounted in a recess in the front fairing as well.
In addition to the hand-guards, the Storr has also been gifted a full suite of crash protection including side crash bars, a full skid plate, a radiator cover, and a matching fork brace cover. What’s more, the concept has also been fitted with a full suite of waterproof soft luggage, with side-mounted panniers and a roll-top tail bag fixed to a custom backpack-style rear luggage rack. Powering the Crossfire Storr 500 is the same engine used in the Crossfire 500 — a 486 cc parallel-twin cranking out around 50hp.
Making its official public debut this week at EICMA, the Brixton Crossfire Storr 500 Adventure Bike Concept thus far only exists as a one-off creation, though if enough interest is shown, there’s a very real possibility that the Storr may eventually enter production.
