Ultra Radical Daily Cruiser

In Sturgis in 2010, Spanish Custom Builder Sergio Bayarri, the boss of SBay Motor Company, won the AMD Championship Production Class with a very radical and beautiful creation named “Flying”. Interest of the American public was so high that Sergio saw the opportunity to market such a model in a limited series production run (less than 50 units) on both sides of the Atlantic, but not before ironing out some details to make it more road friendly while keeping the aggressive stance of the original model.

18 months of improvements later, “Flying” is reborn under the name of “Jerry”. Yes, the limited production model still look very radical, but now got features that could make it your fast daily rider without the need of dressing up like Dart Vader… No need to curve your back to reach the controls. No need to stretch your legs to reach the footrests. The riding position is plain and simple with everything located where your body demands, thus giving the rider the ease of handling required in a daily solo cruiser. Because Sergio Bayarri lives and work in Spain, a country where Japanese Strretfighters and Ducatis annoy him because dominating the road … Sergio Bayarri addressed the weight to power ratio of “Jerry” via extensive use of aluminum and carbon fiber. Depending of the V-Twin engine size you choose (Sergio will let you decide your preferred motor and tranny brand), because the bike is so light weight and agile, it will  “surprise” many of your Harley and other foreign brand friends. Consequently all parts related to acceleration and braking have been selected to satisfy the need of performance and reliability required when you decide to go from cruising to sport handling.

Sergio tells me that Sbay Motor Co has recently acquired a new Haas CNC machining center and lathe and is now able to design and produce parts in-house in a very short period of time. He is also in the process of establishing a shop in Florida where all bikes for the US market will be assembled, his objective being to be fully operational by July 2012. Price for the “Jerry” starts at MSRPm42.000 euros. For US customers price will be around $48.000. SBay Motor Company.

    A lot of very cool engineering features.

    Rear-set floorboards, that’s an answer to a question nobody asked. The design is derivative of the mid 90s Britten. Wonder how the power to weight ratio compares to the 400lb, 167hp Aprilia V4 Tuono? Not to mention the $14K vs $48K price tag.

    Am I the only one that sees this as being just this side shy of a Confederate clone ?

    Anyway , for $48K I’ll track down an original , thanks ,

    Other than the frame color, I like nothing about this motorcycle The front looks way to bulky, running those copper lines is steampunk fail and burning your can on the cans, it not my idea of a nice sunday ride…

    I agree with the last 3 comments. Derivative and completely impractical.

    ugliest forks ever devised by man……

    In my point of view this is an amazing bike for the riders. The look of this bike is outstanding. Its tail lamp is different than the other bike.

    Not my style. Maybe it´s the frontend or the frame. Maybe the Brembo breaks together with the footboards …

    The exhaust looks cool.

    Hottest thing I´ve seen in a long time. 206 kg with a monster 110″ that thing must Fly.
    Saw their Flying at Bonneville and I can tell you Sbay´s haul ass!!!!
    Congratulations for building such awesome creations.
    Over and out

    I see no resemblace whatsoever to any Confederate, and that Girder front end is simply gorgeous.
    Style and engineering all together.
    A trully beautifull machine.

    “Negative GhostRider…the nice yet unprofitable confederate pattern is full”

    Excellent quality just not my taste, and by the amount of profit that bikes of this type have failed to produce me thinks I am not alone. But the dude is a do’er and you gotta give’em the fact he built a cool scoot with some very nice engineering work done. Good luck to ya all the same.

    I am not into the style of the bike. But the craftsmanship and attention to detail is outstanding. I think this guy was looking to blow people away with the wow factor. I think that if he would done all this engineering and attention detail with a more traditional bike people would have been really blown away. But at least this guy can think outside the box.

    Guitar Singer, lets put it this way: If Confederate was Never, Sbay, Corp. would be selling parts on Ebay! They even named their Company after Ebay just in case Manufacturing parts with their CNC Machine becomes reality!

  15. 15 bigalyts Mar 28th, 2012 at 9:10 am

    Even the Fuel Tank looks the same, the Carbon Fiber is the same and the capacity is exactly the same 11 ltrs. or 3.1 Gallons. Amazing! Maybe that is where all the first and second Generation Confederates have gone, is Italy .I think “Jerry” is the code word for “Matt” !
