Actually, the Sheen ultrabike is the result of collaboration with the Sheene family, engineers, mechanics and friends of the motorcycle racing legend throughout his life and racing career.
Fully road legal, the Icon Sheene impressively offers all the excitement and power of race spec bike. One can ride it on the road for touring or for the ultimate thrill, can take into onto the race track.
The ride notably features Alcantara racing seat with Sheene 7 logo, unique keyless ignition with electronic safety override and remote start facility, and digital instrumentation in polished alloy casing.
Other highlights include a custom made tubular aluminum frame including a fuel tank formed from hand-beaten aluminum, which takes around a month to fabricate, and the bodywork is made up of hand-laid carbon fiber panels. The other details include etched and engraved plaques and yokes, and a hand-painted 1940s style pin-up girl.
Each bike was developed over a five-year period and adorns a price tag of approx. $157,000. The superbike will be ridden up the hill at next month’s (July 2-4) Goodwood festival of Speed by Barry Sheene’s son, Freddie.
Notably, every buyer of this ultrabike will also enjoy a custom fitting session before build commences, along with a chance to meet the chief development rider, Steve Parrish.
