Default Ecosse Series Superbikes

There was a little showing of these in an episode of Limited Edition on NDTV good times.

They are priced at 2.5 crs. Now thats a hell lot of money. Does any one have any sort of idea if these are actually available for sale in INDIA.

Ecosse Series Superbikes:
There is life beyond the Ducatis, if you are willing to pay top dollar for this super-duper speedster.

Price: Rs. 2.5-30 crore / US$ 558, 000-680,000

This info. is available at Welcome to Good Times - What are you searching for?

Also please go through the company website at ECOSSE SPIRIT - COMPANY
as per them they would be making only 10 of these world wide.

Too much for a bike I would say. Why wouldn't someone buy a decent car, considering the safety as well. Of course a hard core bike with filthy money would do that but not me, even if I had that much!
No offences but, first look of it, and I thought, it is still incomplete in the stickering department or someone has done an incomplete mod job on a Pulsar

Wow!! Wonder if Jay Leno has ordered any. It looks quite painful if u brake hard, ouch. Quite a radical design though.

Is the brake pedal missing, on this bike? Very radical design indeed.

Holy moly!

120kg is insanely low. And if the thing is making over 200 horses with that kind of weight damn its sure worth the price they're asking for.

But the real question everyone will be asking, can it corner?

Kinda OT, but what ever happened to the Supersprint? I remember seeing a pic of it long long ago ( in some magazine,probably the Week).

The supersprint was a prototype and the people behind it were Arvind Swadi and Rampure. This was around 1994-95, not long before the company shut down. So, it never went into production.

Another one that looked like the SuperSprint was the Showa but this was never intended to be a production bike.

I seen a mechanic in Bangalore doing up his RK like the SuperSprint around the same time.

The Showa guy had wrapped a full fairing around an air cooled engine that was known for its overheating problem.

Here is the picture of the Supersprint.

Cheers
