BST wheels on the Lotus motorcycle

Lotus motorcycle:  Designed by Daniel Simon, creator of the Tron Legacy Lightcycles and the Bubbleship from the movie Oblivion

lotusThe Lotus C-01 was revealed as a 3D computer mockup in 2013, and the world was stunned by its combination of a radical body shape with the legendary Lotus name, never previously associated with motorcycles. The concept was sketched out by former Bugatti designer Daniel Simon, who is best known in the 2-wheel world for the Tron Legacy Lightcycle. Press and Internet observers were further stunned in 2014 to see the computer model had actually been built in a form very close to the fantasy—a rare occurrence with computer concepts.

The original carbon fiber monocoque idea was swapped for a far more practical chromoly trellis tube frame, built by Kalex, which is partly owned by the Holzer Group, who put this Lotus motorcycle project together. The swingarm is an aluminum casting, fully capable of handling all that power, and road tests of the Lotus have been resoundingly positive. It was projected the Lotus C-01 would have 200hp, but the production model uses a 175hp KTM 1195cc V-twin from the RC8R superbike. The chassis is state of the art, with 320mm Brembo racing brakes, twin Ohlins rear suspension, upside-down Sachs forks, and a carbon-fiber shell built of 12 sections.

Light and Lean from Australia


By Doc Robinson of Heavy Duty Magazine, Australia

PhotoID52289-largeInterestingly, when this Ironhead Sportster motor went down the line at Harley-Davidson’s Engine Plant in Milwaukee some time in 1967, carbon fiber hardly existed. Sure, it was back in the 1950s that the first carbon fibers were developed for use on missiles, but they were primitive compared with today’s product. And it wasn’t until the 1970s that today’s carbon fiber composites began to be refined to the point where they became suitable for a wide range of uses.

Carbon fiber’s high strength-to-weight ratio is the core property that makes it such an appealing product to use in all kinds of applications, including cars, motorcycles, fishing rods, guitars and racquet frames, to name but a few. However, you don’t see much of it in the custom bike world and there’s a good reason for this; it’s a real bastard to work with.

Street Legal NCR M4 Motorcycle


NCR-M4-and-M4-One-Shot-NCR is pleased to announce a new street legal motorcycle being homologated, initially, for the US market and then for the European and other markets. The new NCR M4 derives from years of building and racing the NCR Millona to many victories and championships in many countries. The Millona is known for it’s light weight and amazing handling. Using the same basic geometry and concept, the M4 was designed to be as light or lighter in street trim than the original Millona was in race trim.

The air cooled NCR M4 comes with a titanium frame and subframe along with carbon fiber tank, BST wheels, instrument cluster, airbox, oil cooler housing and fenders. An innovative central electronic package allows for quick disconnects by way of top grade military connectors along with access to many features by way of an USB computer interface and software. NCR exotic parts like billet triple clamps, fork bottoms, rearsets along with Brembo radial controls and calipers and Ohlins suspension front and back add to the impressive list of features.

Ryan Schnitz Records First 6-Second Pro Street Motorcycle  ¼ Mile Pass

11_1006_Ryan_Andy_Roberts_Photo1Ryan Schnitz has made history, becoming the first rider to record a six-second run on a street-tire bike at the MIROCK ‘Fast by Gast’ – Fall Nationals at Maryland International Raceway. Riding the nitrous-injected HTP Suzuki of Cecil Towner, Schnitz recorded a mind-boggling 6.907 elapsed time at 203.06 mph during the first round of eliminations in the Pro Street class.“When I went through the finish line I knew it was the fastest I had been on the bike,” said Schnitz. “I thought it was a 6.96 or a 6.97. A 6.90 was unreal!”

Schnitz’ 1/8 mile numbers were 4.531 seconds at 171.03 MPH – a time that would have put him in the top half of the Pro Mod field at the event.

“It feels awesome,” said Towner. “Ryan and I had this as goal from the beginning of the year. When we started running 7.0s there was a lot of attention on us. I am glad to get that monkey off my back.”

The run came more than ten years after Brock Davidson made the first seven-second streetbike run, recording a 7.973 at 179 mph on May 21, 2000 at Rockingham Dragway on a nitrous-injected Suzuki Bandit in the old Streetbike Shootout class.
