All right, we know that Ferrari does not make motorbikes. But can that fact stop us from owning a Ferrari motorbike? Don’t worry, we are not talking crazy. The buzz is that a group of custom cycle makers have come up with the machine on two wheels. Yeah, we know that the Maranello-inspired two-wheeler made by Arlen Ness made a lot of news but in all honesty and fairness, the machine was not very practical. After all, wouldn’t we all like a Ferrari bike that is sporty, can be taken out on the regular roads and also sit pretty in one’s garage!
And the icing on the cake is that Ferrari too agrees. Perhaps that is why the mobike in reference bears the official Ferrari chassis number (SF-01M) and comes in the signature red we all know so well. Designed by David Kay Engineering in 1995, this mobike runs on a DOHC engine with a horsepower of 105 at 8,800rpm displacing 900 cc.
Agreed, you might not like the Testarossa-style strakes on both sides, but nothing is perfect. And if you wondering about the price tag, well we can’t say much until 20th when the auction ends. But what we do know is that the expected price should go around $300K.
