Lvpvs Alpha by Officine RossoPuro

The team at Officine RossoPuro have taken modern motorcycle design into the future with an unapologetically advanced and futuristic build based on a Moto Guzzi California 1400. The bike is named Lvpvs Alpha, and it certainly has an alpha feel to it.

At first glance, it’s hard to see any of the Guzzi California remains. In fact, ninety percent of the motorcycle is handcrafted, with most of the components being manufactured by Officine. The design revolved around the girder fork, which uses a midified Ohlins shock absorber for damping. The rear suspension system was completely overhauled as well, and it incorporates a mix of chromium, molybdenum and vanadium in tubes that have been connected to Bitubo shock absorbers. The rear wheel is now 18 inches instead of the 16 it was previously. The fuel tank is crafted from titanium, and it serves a dual purpose as it also houses the electric system in a carbon box. The result is a radically different custom bike than the bikes we’re used to seeing. [Via]
