Innovative new British motorcycle manufacturer, Spirit Motorcycles, unveiled its first models this evening at an exclusive launch event at The Bike Shed in London; the MotoGP inspired, high-end GP-Sport and GP-Street. Spirit Motorcycles leads the way in bringing a new pedigree of motorcycle to the market.
Also available will be an even more exclusive R series machine, created for both the Street and Sports models, with considerable weight savings and performance upgrades. Created with an even higher level of personalisation; the ‘R’ model will be limited to just 50 machines.
Using the unrivalled knowledge of both founding parties, motorcycle engineering firm T3 Racing and custom bike builders Spirit of the Seventies, Spirit Motorcycles bridges the gap between the fashion styling of the custom world, the real-world functionality of large-scale production bikes and the outright performance of true racing machines.
Each motorcycle will be bespoke in final specification to its owner as the engineers utilise their experience of creating Championship winning race bikes, with racers desiring a level of individualism for their machines. As well as stunning looks, the new range of Spirit Motorcycles will offer an unsurpassed level of handling that will be the envy of any Superbike owners on the road or in the race paddock.
The two innovative new models, the fully faired GP-Sport and the naked GP-Street roadster feature a first from a British motorcycle manufacturer; a Grand Prix inspired fully adjustable chassis, from headstock to swingarm. With a 750cc three-cylinder engine, the very highest quality components, cutting edge F1 style electronics and lightweight carbon monocoque bodywork, the bikes redefine the world of British motorcycle performance.
The 180bhp, liquid cooled machines feature a hand built, braze-welded steel alloy tubular frame, a GP-spec aluminium swingarm and K-Tech suspension front and rear. With weight saving a key factor, the machines weigh just 140kg (without fuel) and feature state-of-the-art electronics and dash. Both machines can be customised, with Spirit Motorcycles offering bespoke paintwork, carbon wheels and exhausts among other options.
The machines also feature switchable riding modes for road and track, in fact the advanced electronics package mirror the finest components money can buy sourced to ensure that Spirit Motorcycles leads the way in all technological specifications.
Tony Scott, MD at Spirit Motorcycles said, “We’re very excited to be launching our first two new models to the market. Both the GP-Street and GP-Sport have been built using our unrivalled technical know-how and engineered to the very highest standards, whilst maintaining an exquisite and luxurious design. Our limited production run also means Spirit Motorcycles guarantees exclusivity, making the machines the perfect choice for any discerning motorcycle fan.”
