Ritzenried, Germany, September 06, 2007 --(PR.com
)-- This roadster is ex factory designed in a quite puristic way which gives enough surface to add or change some individual details.
The basic thought behind the conversion was to give the R a more sportive look which should at the same time be quite discreet and, above all, realizable for the later customers.
The concept was produced by a Spanish designer to make sure that all elements are perfectly matching. What came out is a R in classic black with red stripe-highlights and some modifications.
To turn its sound more into the racing direction, a PowerCone by Remus was mounted. The titan version fits perfectly to all the other aluminum parts and brings an improved performance up to 4 PS.
Also an average to make the bike look more sportive is the engine-spoiler. It is made of GRP and can additionally be furnished with a grid in its front part. Although this spoiler looks very sporty it can be used together with the center stand.
For those drivers who are on their way without a pillion rider, the rear seat cover, also made of GRP, is a nice amendment. It nestles perfectly to the R's tail and can be demounted quite rapidly if you decide to drive with a pillion rider.
The small windscreen has consciously been made that small to save the roadster's character. However, it provides enough protection from the wind to be able to drive for more than 30 minutes.
The rear hugger (also GRP) protects the driver's and pillion's feet from splashing dirt and water to reach the destination quite dry.
All GRP parts will be delivered in black primed (like in the pictures) and can be painted in every colour.
As smaller details, many covers like Swingarm pivot cover, Frame cover, Fork tube cover, Oil filler plug, Axle journal cover, Telelever end caps, Rear wheel lug cover or Engine cover made of anodized aluminum were added.
A more comfortable way of driving provide the Mirror extensions which improve the view to the back and also Shift lever- and Brake pedal enlargement - which permit a safer shifting and braking by their aggrandized contact area. To keep away insects and dirt from the oil cooler, a big grid was mounted.
For a better stand on uneven ground, there's the sidestand foot enlargement which is made of black anodized aluminum, too.
All in all it is a conversion with many small details which all work together quite well and make up a pretty general view - that of a sportive R1200R.
