We started with a Harley-Davidson platform, which Harley traditionally has associated with open road cruisers but now wanted to present in an atypical fashion. The basis of this build was 100-percent performance driven. We took design inspiration from performance streetbikes as well as GP and TT racebikes and built our version, which would be perfectly suited for winding mountain roads but definitely more at home on the racetrack. In racing, lighter is better, so we used as many lightweight components as possible, from the aluminum bodywork to the carbon-fiber wheels and swingarm. There really isn't much to the bike when you look at it; it's a bare-bones racebike to its core. There's a saying that "every racebike is a show bike, but not every show bike is a racebike," and I think that speaks to the art of speed. Bikers can appreciate a well-balanced machine built purely for speed just like a well-composed painting. Both are works of art in their own right.
