The NCR M16 dry weight is just 145 kg (319 lbs) thanks to the NCR designed and developed carbon fiber frame, making it lighter than the imposed minimum weight of a MotoGP motorcycle. The manufacturer also improved the air intake system by allowing an unobstructed flow of air through the steering head.
Other carbon fiber elements made by NCR for this new sportsbike is a new swingarm, fuel tank, faring, subframe/tail, fender, front faring stay, as well as the wheels. As with other NCR machines, all mechanical parts are either titanium or avionic grade aluminum with materials derived from Formula One.
Performance wise, the Desmo16RR tuned engine develops 200+ horsepower at the rear wheel. The M16 machine electronics is derived from racing with full traction control, data collection and recording, 3 user selectable maps, as well as constant fuel remapping based on environment and gas conditions.
“The NCR tradition of unmatched power to weight ration continues to be the main driving force in the design and development,” the company brags in a statement. “Upon closer inspection, you will note that this is no ordinary motorcycle. It was conceived from the start to be the most exclusive motorcycle in the world by using the strongest and lightest material in the world.”
Pricing of the new MCR 16 motorcycle is to be announced at a later date.
