Cobra Reveals RS750 Motorcycle Concepts
The five concepts are: Scrambler, Cafe Racer, Street Fighter, Dirt Tracker, and Bobber. The company, however, will build just two customs based around two of the five concepts.
"If we had enough time, we'd build all five of these bikes. Each is so cool and every one would be a blast to ride. But we plan to unveil these at the Long Beach Motorcycle Show on December 17, 2010 so we"re going to pick two and let the others rest for now," stated Ken Boyko, VP of the Cobra Special Projects Division.
The five concepts are detailed below:
The Scrambler - recreating Honda CL72 (250) and CL77 (305) scramblers, down to the red frame, and rubber tank side pads, it will include high pipes with distinctive heat shields.
The Cafe Racer -single seat, lowered bars, raised pegs and chopped rear fenders are key features of this version, as are short megaphone mufflers and head pipes with no head shields.
The Street Fighter - small headlight, nasty exhaust and powerful brakes are among the highlights, as are a high-performance engine and special paint.
The Dirt Tracker - inspired by Ricky Grahm and Bubba Shobert in the mid-eighties taking it to the venerable H-D Factory on the Miles and half-mile dirt-track circuit on their hand-built bikes, crafted by Ray Plumb and Skip Ekins.
The Bobber - evoking the post WWII era, the bike will have no front fender and a single seat with the rear fender bobbed about as short as it could be. Rattle-can paint, mostly flat black was the color of choice.
