Some of you get bored by the neo-retro bike style and would like to see more high tech custom motorcycles. And the future of custom building you ask? How tomorrow’s bikes are going to look? Not sure, but this Swiss made machine fits the profile (pun intended), including the mechanical precision and intricacies for which this country is famous worldwide.
“Energicer” is a collaboration between 2 Swiss companies, Speed Department and Mayhem Kustomz, with the objective to show and race for a Bonneville speed record in the Ethanol class 2 cylinders under 2 liters. I guess the Salts of Utah are going to be crowded this coming September. Did you notice? The most recent bikes going to Utah are not only race ready but more and more beautiful. Probably to prove to the world that beauty is not the enemy of speed.
Engine is a secret very special 107″ recipe concocted from various parts from different major engine builders associated with a plain Rev Tech 6-speed transmission. Springer front end, swingarm (with the help of Haberman Performance) are in-house fabrication holding a front 23″ x 3.25″ and rear 20 x 7″ one-off design wheels. At the end of each run on the Salts, Energicer will slow via perimeter discs on both sides of the front wheel and a sprocket brake in the rear. Notice the seat position. Owner Ronny Stöcklin wants Switzerland to be recognized as a major custom motorcycles hub. Will be in Bonneville and will watch this one racing against time. Speed Department Switzerland.
