It looks like a new SR400 ( complete with kick-start and fuel injection)
Looks like a great platform for this kind of thing. It wouldn't take much to change a stock one into one of these.

Thank you for not hacking the back end off, painting everything flat black, and calling it a "Cafe Racer". More than enough of that stuff around.
