The most powerful and expensive production motorcycle to have ripped the streets is the Icon Sheene. The $160,000 machine is not just a superbike it is an “ultrabike”. Borris designed the bike in fond memory of Barry Sheene, the British Grand Prix motorcycle world champion. As a part of its achievement, the Sheene achieved 250 bhp at rear wheel and 133 lb-ft of torque with 0.4 bar of turbo.
Some of Barry’s best and most trusted engineer’s were involved in the making of the bike. The engine hand built, Garrett turbocharged Suzuki GSX14000 air-cooled lump with carillo rods, Wiseco pistons and many other competition grade specifications.
Handmade carbon-fiber bodywork, handmade aluminum tank, digital instrumentation, handmade stainless exhaust and rear swing arm is an amazing work of 3-D engineering. Though it has taken a slow 5 years to develop, finally it will be breaking record speeds at 200 mph.
