Elements such as the 17-inch Marchesini wheels, CNC-machined fork yokes, and alloy swingarm allow for shedding extra weight, but the SR1 doesn't just lose fat, it also gains muscle. In its original form, the Buell engine produced 101 hp. Jimmy Messina boosts it with two 39 mm Keihin FCR carburetors, high-flow filters, and a homemade 2-into-1 exhaust system fitted with an SC-Project muffler for a bit more punch.
With such a radical approach to an American black horse, RD Kustom & Design makes the SR1 stand out even more with angular aesthetics. From the diamond-shaped headlight cluster to the two-tone airbox/fuel tank combo to the pointed rear loop, the shape of the custom roadster not only follows its function but also evokes emotions. This harmony of style and substance immediately captured the public's attention.
The frame is constructed using aerospace-grade aluminum and comprises of a double tubular steel beam made of 25cd4s steel, combined with front and rear aluminum 7075 t6 "blocks".
The lightweight frame enhances both weight savings and rigidity by utilizing the 1200 cc V-twin as a stressed component. To reinforce the front, a 51mm Marzocchi fork and Brembo braking system are utilized, while the rear shock absorber is custom-designed by French suspension specialists EMC.
