Right here at wBW, we don’t play favorites – not less than, not except it’s a day the place the bike construct is especially kickass.
Right this moment is a type of days.
Everyone, meet the ‘Pegasus l’Étalon Noir’ (Pegasus The Black Stallion) – a stupidly spiffy machine primarily based on the Royal Enfield Continental GT 650, with work accomplished by none apart from the designers and engineers at our favourite Parisian bike store, Unhealthy Winners.
High Velocity tells us that it’s due to the pandemic that this explicit undertaking was nearly scrapped again in 2020 – and now, with the construct restarted a yr later and the top product formally debuted, we’re glad the Pegasus made it.
We are saying the bike is predicated on the Continental GT as a result of there’s nearly nothing left of the unique bike. To pull this beastie out, Unhealthy Winners added a “3D printed gasoline tank cowl, entrance quantity board, and tail part made totally from carbon fiber.”
Naturally, a inventory 648cc engine wouldn’t do for a drag race; BW added a giant bore equipment from S&S Cycles, ramping up the juice potential to 865cc and tricking the bike out with reworked cylinder heads, upgraded camshaft, bolstered clutch, and a two-into-one free-flow exhaust.
Clearly, if you happen to’re trying to blast off a number of wigs, weight management is a consideration. High Velocity tells us that “the redesigned gasoline tank solely holds half a gallon, sufficient juice for only a single cross.”
Add to this the chopped subframe, fabricated mount (for the brand new Öhlins mono-shock), and stretched swingarm (getting the pegs way back to potential) to enrich the super-low clip-on handlebar, and also you’ve acquired your self a reasonably one-trick pony for the gathering.
Oh, we nearly forgot – the Pegasus drinks Nitrous.
“The crown jewel is the insane Nitrous System which makes this greater than able to starring within the Quick & Livid films (sufficient poke to provide the automobiles a run for his or her cash, anyway),” states the report.
I personally can’t wait to see the stallion in motion – what do you suppose?
