#4 - The Class Defining Original

The #4 is the first of its kind with such a style, and by this created in 2003 the new class of Minimalistic and Modern Customs™ and also defined as essential part the identity of Style of Speed. The original version is based on the reengineered Bimota Tesi 1D frame and front swing arm with the unique hub center steering concept. Later the Bimota Tesi 2D and 3D frames and front swing arms were added. Its engine and rear suspension arm have always been free to choose, because the #4 is our definition of a general style and not a special motorcycle model.

Minimalistic and Modern Customs
In the meantime motorbike enthusiasts and designers say about our creation of the new class of Modern Customs™:

  • "The rather radical design ideas [of Style of Speed] are the first true fresh ideas in motorcycle design in over 100 years".
  • "Awesome looking bike! The bare essentials, thats what bikes should be about."
  • "Awesome and unique bike [concept ...]!"
  • "[...] probably the most advanced innovative motorcycle design in the world [...]."
  • "The term 'hot seat' also comes to mind. Very unique and interest- ing bike."
  • "Love it, and another plus for hub center steering."
  • "Loooooooove the bike [;] minimalist [;] creative"
  • "I really hope this is the direction custom bike building will go."
  • "Speed, Discovery, etc. should be leading the way [....]"
  • "That looks like fun ...."
  • "The more and more I look at the bike, I realise how beautiful it is! Top effort on making something so nice, usable as well[.]"

  • "SO HOT [...]!"
  • "Impressive design[...]!!!!"

  • "Some [motorbike designs] are flashy and unrealistic, some are bu- ried in chrome and electronics but sometimes you come across a one-off bike that stirs emotion and a primal urge, provoking an ad- renaline rush."
