Monster Italian Design. American Powered With S&S X-Wedge Engine

crs1crs2It’s not every day that you see an Italian Custom Builder specializing in sport bikes and high tech Cafe Racers using as powerplant an American S&S X-Wedge engine (pronounce Ex-Wedge or Cross-Edge) and I love it! We are in Milan and you better off running a performance engine with emissions compliance if you don’t want your bike immediately confiscated by the Carabinieris (Italian police). This new model is called “Duu” (Milanese slang for “Two”), is supposed to be produced in limited edition for model 2011, and features the goodies we like to see in this type of bike like single sided swingarm, inverted fork, Brembo brakes, dragster style fuel tank in a very “show me” Italian design package. Price should be around 20,000 euros or the equivalent of US$30,000. The builder is a company called CRS Motorcycles and unfortunately their website is still in construction with no further information. To follow…

    Looks a little bit heavy for my taste.

    I think it is a great looking bike and I like the fact that an American manufacture is supplying the power plant.

    i agree – seriously cheap – no way they can make that and sell it for profit.

    THIS BIKES ROCKS and will Sell, If the ZIiti Brothers get it together. These Tali’s are good at the Drawing Table, but not much on making it come together well ! That’s Why we just keep eating their Pasta, cause they do that well !

    Bigalyts its not just about exchange rates – if i buy a product in the US for $1000 by the time its shipped here to the UK and i paid clearance and taxes it probably costs me nearly £1000. So i know that to build a series of bikes like this and sell them for €20000 with a nice S&S engine doesn’t leave a lot for profit. They should have used a Moto Guzzi engine maybe then it would be cheaper!

    Great looks, Italian design, American made powerplant, S&S and Baker FFP look damn good together. Looks better than a Busa, by far. Dont see them being doin it for long for only $30 grand. Cheap.
