A Ferrari motorcycle exists?

In 1990, a one-off custom motorcycle was created by David Kay as a tribute to Enzo Ferrari, the founding father of Ferrari. Apparently, Kay contacted Enzo’s son, Piero Ferrari, and asked for the Italian marque’s blessing. It was approved.

The bike required 3,000 hours of work as it was built from scratch. Made out of aluminum, the prancing 2-wheeler’s weight was kept at a minimum in order to aid fast riding. Brakes came in the form of twin-piston Brembo units, helping the 17-inch Atralite wheels come to a complete stop.

The 2-wheel Ferrari came with a top speed of 265km/h and the ability to accelerate from 0-100km/h in under 3 seconds. Power output was rated at 105hp at 8,000rpm.

The power source is a 4-cylinder, 900cc engine mated to a 5-speed transmission.

The motorcycle is now making its way to the auction block, where it’s expected to fetch a nice chunk of change. Estimated somewhere between $120,000 to $160,000.

    Looks good! I think some elements of the bike’s design may have been influenced by the Testarossa. 🙂

  2. I would like to see the creator of the Ferrari Motorcycle do a MAC Truck Tribute Bike. With all he did with theFerrari Bike, there is no limit what his MAC TRUCK BIKE WOULD be like

    @Mathai: Interesting viewpoint!

    @twotiretirade: If he was to create a MAC Truck tribute bike, that would be one muscular-looking machine!
