Born in the depths of the motorcycle underworld
This magnificent project finally has arrived - only in a bulk of 47. The Ronin 47 is a result of Harley Davidson closing down American sportsbike brand: Buell. The team from Ronin Motorworks set out to strip the chassis of the 1125 only leaving the frame, wheels and engine behind as these is considered to be chief technical standouts and worth keeping. Ronin Motorworks created a beast with a girder-like fork and a front looking radiator looking like something stolen from a Bugatti Veyron.
The creation of a beast
The 47's ignition is keyless, actuated by an RFID chip under the air box cover - of course individualized so no one can lend it for a ride. LED indicators are built into the bar ends. The free floating exhaust gives a look as if it is bound to take of faster than the F35 Raptor. The production line stops at 47 bikes and the first batch is already sold at US$38,000. Additional releases is on the line. Each of the 47 bikes is named after one of the 47 Ronin.
