THE PRAËM SP3 IS THE MOST EXCLUSIVE HONDA RC51 IN THE WORLD

Posted by

“The goal is not to make a pure race bike or a comfortable touring bike, but a vehicle that can live in between these two worlds” 

French customizers PRAËM are proud to present their first ever custom, the PRAËM SP3. The PRAËM SP3 is a one-of-a-kind Honda VTR 1000 RC51 SP2. This particular machine won the SBK championship in 2000 and finished second in the points in 2001, both times with legendary motorcycle racer Collin Edwards.

The high-powered SP3 features a magnesium and aluminum engine that cranks out 165 horsepower, Öhlins suspension, Brembo breaks and lightweight Rotobox carbon fiber wheels. The rear cylinder has been built to prevent overheating thanks to the large fuel tank cutout, while the frame notes construction from stainless steel and brushed aluminum.

The coolest feature of the bike, though, has to be the integrated Tag Heuer Monaco Calibre 11 watch on the tank. The designers deliberately chose to integrate the complete watch (with strap) in its support to keep it wearable when the rider is not on the machine.
