Motorcycle tuning information with articles and pictures about modified motorcycles for motorcycle tuning enthusiasts.
The notorious car tuners from Kahn Design have teamed up with Lauge Jensen who just made headlines with their 24-carat gold plated motorcycle. This gold bike also had 250 diamonds and crocodile leather while fetching a price of $850,000 or €615,000. Check out the pictures in the gallery below. With a new collaboration between A. Kahn Design and Lauge Jensen, some new motorcycle tuning is planned to be showcased in Chelsea, London very soon.
The Bulgarian tuning house Vilner has ventured into motorcycles with their latest Aprilia Tuono project they are calling the Stingray. This kit offers a new front fender, redesigned headlights, new LED turn signals, side spoiler with vents and a newly sculpted tank. Vilner also added new upholstery to the seats, painted the frame all black and extended the rear fork along with the chain by 150 mm. Lastly, a few performance tweaks were made to the Aprilia Tuono to boost the engine’s output by up to 10 percent.
Check out this Ducati Monster 1100 EVO that has been tuned by Vilner. While we don’t cover motorcycles often, we are going to add a new bike section for all the motorcycle tuning enthusiasts. This project comes shortly after the BMW F800 R motorcycle received a tune from Vilner. Similar to that project, this Ducati features new aluminum on the front end, a new headlamp and a shortened rear end to go along with the custom paint.
While Kawasaki is known for great motorcycle designs, Dutch designer Sabino Leerentveld drew up this unique super car concept called the Kawasaki ZX-770R. It was inspired by the KTM X-BOW, which is a four wheel car also made by popular motorcycle manufacturer ABT. This Kawasaki super car would be extremely light, weighing in at only 500 kg or 1,100 pounds. Power would come from a plentiful V6 turbocharged powerplant, which is said to develop a whopping 770 horsepower. This is more than enough for a car this size, and has us questioning if the wheels would even be able to stick to the pavement.
We don’t often review motorcycles, however the famous car tuners at Mansory have put together a custom build called the Zapico. Featuring more carbon fiber than a typical tuned car, the Mansory Zapico is one unique bike. Partnering with motorcycle specialist Thomas M. George, the project includes carbon fiber inserts literally from end-to-end, along with odd side mirrors and a luxe leather seat. Some aftermarket parts not made of carbon are the fuel tank, spoiler, and rear fender made of aluminum. Not only does this motorcyle look amazing, but it is pretty quick as well. At the track, the Mansory Zapico motorcycle can sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.3 seconds. This power comes from the 2.0-liter V2 engine producing 160 PS or 158 horsepower. The engine was supplied by the American company S&S, while the bike also received a new set of rims measuring 18×3.5 in the front, and 18×10 at the rear.
