Mad for mods? Production begins on ultra-customisable CCM Spitfire Six
CCM have started production on the sixth incarnation of their Spitfire range, aptly dubbed the Six, promising more personalisation than any model to come before it.
Having first shown the minimalist bike over a year ago, the Spitfire Six is limited to 300 individually numbered units, with each customer able to select from varying trim levels, colours, suspension and performance upgrades and more to truly make it their own.

Starting at £9995 and producing 55bhp as standard, the bike makes use of the same basic 600cc single-cylinder engine and tig-welded trellis frame found on all current Spitfires, however the subframe has been altered to mirror that of the Spitfire Bobber – sitting lower and slimmer to appeal to a wider range of rider sizes.
Outside of this, would-be owners have the opportunity to make their bikes unique. Starting with the tank, customers can choose between four standard colours ranging from £450 to £750, with bespoke liveries also available upon enquiry.
Moving backwards, the seat is also interchangeable for five quilted and alcantara options in multiple colour schemes, with smatterings of carbon fibre also available as replacement chain guards, engine covers and more.
It’s not just aesthetic changes, either, with Öhlins suspension upgrades available to complement the striking chassis work. A front fork kit is an additional £3500, with a rear shock with remote adjuster setting you back a further £899. Alternatively, a full race pack is yours for a wallet-emptying £4950.
To unlock some extra noise, there’s also a twin titanium Austin Racing exhaust system up for grabs for £2000 and for a little added go, CCM will also sell you a £399 stage one remap. The exact performance improvement from this remains unclear at this time.
Away from personalisation, customers can also choose from one of two Stealth kits. Part of a range of bikes revealed ahead of Motorcycle Live 2019, both offer an understated blend of hand painted bronze chrome and gloss black and fine details like a carbon fibre headlight cowl and rear mudguard.
Both are identical, barring the 19in rims, with the £1200 first option getting stainless steel spokes and the £1500 second choice receiving an eight-spoke billet alloy design.
More CCMs on the way
At present, the Six is only available to buy in the UK, however CCM have claimed in a statement that they are currently "formulating plans" to bring the Spitfire series to Europe in 2021, alongside "a number of exciting new models currently on the drawing board." MCN will bring you more details on these new machines as they become available.
