Efter Lotus Tron bike, Caterham kontrar med SUV-motorcykel..


Tillbaka till vardagen efter AUS GP. Kikade lite vidare på den där artikeln om den grymma Tron-inspirerade och otroligt läckra Lotus-motorcykeln, och kom över sidan caterhambikes.com. Det här är nog inte helt nytt, men jag har inte sett dem tidigare. Tydligen gör Caterham också motorcyklar. Och som de gör dem..

Svårt att läsa sig till om detta bara är koncept eller om de faktiskt finns där ute “på riktigt”. Tre olika modeller, men det är väl den där SUV-motorcykeln som sticker ut.. Brutus 750 av alla namn;

Caterham Bikes - Brutus-750

Så här beskriver de den;

The Brutus 750 offers performance and assured handling, as well as the exciting ability to be all things to all riders – along with a slice of Caterham DNA, where excitement is just a twist of the throttle away.

With its ability to be an on-road bike, an off-road machine or even a snowmobile, the Brutus delivers the ultimate in flexibility and riding simplicity thanks to a 750cc single-cylinder engine that delivers its power through an automatic gearbox. This machine provides all the thrills of a motorcycle but with the simplicity of a twist-and-go scooter.

So don’t let the raw, excitingly aggressive lines of the Brutus fool you. This is an ergonomically practical motorcycle, giving the rider comfort, while the chassis and powertrain – as well as that automatic transmission – means that this isn’t a motorcycle whose performance can only be enjoyed by experienced riders. This is a machine on which ease-of-use means all the performance and enjoyment is accessible to both novice and seasoned riders alike.

The Brutus 750 offers the unique ability to be an attitude-laden road machine, conquering the urban jungle with ease or offer riders a real spirit of adventure as an off-road motorcycle, where the fun only begins when you venture off the beaten track. Then – in just a matter of hours – you can convert the Brutus 750 into an exciting snowmobile. All these transformations occur thanks to the Brutus 750’s aftermarket conversion kit, or a swop of tyres, meaning riders can traverse sand, snow or tarmac, making the Brutus the first true multi-terrain motorcycle.

The Brutus 750 is a truly new-wave machine, melding the spirit of a motorcycle with the simplicity of the scooter and is the first motorcycle to truly offer simple fun and easy enjoyment on all terrains.

Ok, tillbaka till Formel 1..
