Veon Motorcycle World Champion Of Bike Building. The Way It Works.

Fred Krugger and Peer Toftner of Veon Motorcycles won the 2010 AMD World Championship Of Bike Building with a wonderful machine that you can transform from cruiser to racer at the push of a button in a total of 5 seconds, while stopped or when riding. In Sturgis, Fred showed me how smoothly it works and now, thanks to this brand new video, you can also see Veon going from a low-seat/feet-forward/cruiser configuration, to a high-seat/feet-aft/sport-racing configuration, as well as any intermediate position. Fred just sent me this video. See and admire the technology authorizing such metamorphosis at the flip of a switch. Krugger Motorcycle Company.

    Great idea. But really wonder if it’s worth the effort if not going in production.

    Innovation doesn’t have to go into production. I’d buy dedicated “racer” version any day of the week.

    Neo Dutch is right – innovation doesn’t have to go into production, but without people pushing the boundaries, innovation in the mainstream doesn’t happen. As I’ve pointed out before, bikes like Veon are the two-wheeled equivalent of high-end haute couture fashion. The crazy clothes you see in catwalk fashion shows in Paris, Milan and New York are often unwearable, but an element will filter down and influence fashion on the high street. Without builds like Veon, the whole custom scene will stagnate.

    As for Brandon’s comment about is it worth the effort if it’s not going into production – well, if you followed that line of thought, no-one would ever build another custom motorcycle…. 🙂
