When you're in a place like British Columbia, you'll want a bike that can tackle any terrain. That's the design direction of Federal Moto's latest bike, the Lil' Kim. Built for craft brewery owner, Kenny Dodd, the name is play on the infamous rapper and Dodd's hometown of Kimberly, BC. 

Built on a 2006 XR650L, Dodd requested a bike with "old style appeal" and as you can see Federal Moto came through in spades. Stripped down to its bare essentials, the lightweight motorcycle could not be more perfect for riding on the dirt or cruising through BC's incredibly scenic roads.
