Founded in 2010, Untitled Motorcycles is unequivocally one of the most respected custom moto shops on the planet, with a lengthy track record of churning out world-class builds with an unmistakable factory finish. And after UMC’s San Francisco shop previously completed one of the most high-profile custom electric builds of all time — the UMC-063 XP ZERO — the outfit’s London-based founder, Adam Kay has once again turned his attention to battery-powered bikes, this time creating an all-electric supermoto concept cheekily-named “Death To Petrol” — or “DTP” for short.
Taking inspiration from one of Adam’s large-diameter-framed mountain bikes, UMC’s DTP project is constructed around a one-off perimeter frame that’s crafted from 50mm tubing and paired with a custom swing-arm. Leaving the motor and batteries that compromise the bike’s powertrain on full display, this bespoke chassis has been mated to a braced mono-shock and the inverted front-end from a KTM 390 Duke. Powering the DTP build is an experimental electric dirt bike motor supplied by Sur-Ron — a battery-powered mill that allows for a restricted top speed of 50mph.
Riding on spoked 17” wheels shod in Dunlop supermoto rubber, the bike also gets top-shelf ISR brakes with Venhill lines, a Motogadget controller and LED indicators, Biltwell grips, a custom LED headlight assembly, and a pair of circular LED taillights capping off the back of the subframe. The bike is now helmed via a set of Renthal tracker bars, fixed foot-pegs, and a custom MX-style saddle.
Thus far, Untitled Motorcycle’s UMC-DTP project merely exists as a one-off. However, Kay plans on further developing it in order to produce a limited-edition run of these electric supermoto bikes with a target curb weight of just 155lbs.
