I have to hand it to you Boldor; you're right about that Vitpilen. It's not a cafe bike. It's not a supermoto. It's a weird mish mash of the two. It's incongruous. What it does have is some gorgeous individual details, like the rear cutout and airfilter line, tank, exhaust. As a whole bike, though, it disagrees with itself.
Maybe the most off-putting thing about it is that it is too much of a retro throwback, which I don't like as a rule. If you want a cafe bike, BE a cafe bike person and build a Norton or or an XS or whatever. You can't buy a brand new bike and call it a cafe bike. Owner modification, customization, and trial and error are as integral to the definition of what a cafe bike is as the final product.
This thing is not a rider's bike. It's a fashion bike.
