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.
