Exodus, an Extreme Bike for Extreme Riders [Photo Gallery][Video]
text size: A- A+
It almost looks like a rat bike painted in silver, well worthy to star in a Mad Max movie, but there's nothing ratty about the Exodus. In fact, Suprine's machine is quite the opposite, we'd say, as it boasts high tech engineering, a frame and roll cage made from aluminium, magnesium, titanium and stainless steel, a BMW engine and swingarm, all upgraded and finely-tuned to fit in this peculiar build.
According to Suprine Machinery, the Exodus is very safe and economical, thanks to the special aerodynamic design which provides less drag and overall low profile. The makers claim the Exodus will give you 80 mpg @ 55 mph (2.93 l/100 km at 88.4 km/h), and that's really nifty.
At the same time, the Exodus is said to dart from 0 to 60 (0-100 km/h) in a blazing 4.1 seconds and deliver a top speed in excess of 155 mph (249 km/h) which is obviously more than enough.
Pre-orders are being already taken, and Suprine will start deliveries in 2014. The standard Exodus comes with an 1200cc flat-four BMW engine to produce 126 HP, but a more savage G model will also be manufactured for the extreme riders: a turbo-charged power unit, carbon ceramic brakes (MotoGP-style?) and multiple other enhancements.
The price tags are as extreme as the Exodus itself: “Initial deliveries likely will cost a minimum of $55,000 (€42,655). "G" versions likely will exceed $100,000 (€77,555). Custom versions equipped with "G" components likely will exceed $150,000 (€116,333)" the Suprine Machinery website hints us.

I don't see a point in putting a bike in a cage but not providing sides to keep out the rain.
