Walz Hardcore Benchmark, Custom Excellence Starting at €124,900 [Photo Gallery]
The basic model can be of course, upgraded to suit individual preferences as exclusive and even more expensive as they might be. The Benchmark is literally loaded with top-notch racing-specced components, making sure the bike not only looks well, but also delivers a matching performance.
If the standard S&S 96ci engine seems not enough, you can choose bigger power units, such as the 124ci beast in the pictured bike (€149,000 or $198,030).
While the pictured Benchmark looks massive and huge, it actually weighs dramatically less than a Rampage or Avalanche, having shaved 40 kg (88 lbs) off. Thanks to the carbon wheels, titanium exhaust, brake discs made of a carbon-fiber ceramic composite, titanium brake pistons and full-carbon engine kit, the pictured Walz Benchmark can offer even more thrill.
While the base Benchmark comes with a black anodized Marzocchi fork, customers can ask for special ones, such as the pictured golden Ohlins MotoGP one. A wide variety of top-drawer parts are available from the very best in the business: Ohlins, Akrapovic, Brembo BST Blackstone, LSL, S & S, Marzocchi and more, and how far will you go is up to you and your checkbook.
