Officine Rossopuro Scighera Hi-Res Photos

Knowing that you would appreciate more some high-resolution photos of the new Officine Rossopuro bike, we’ve delayed on purpose this piece on the Scighera. However, as Rossopuro’s Filippo Barbacane provided such photos, here’s his latest amazing creation. In case the name Scighera sounds somehow familiar, you may have some memories of the 1997 Alfa Romeo concept car created by Italdesign back in the day. Still the Officine Scighera is a completely different beast.

Officine Rossopuro Scighera
The Scighera (dialect for morning mist in the fields) was commissioned by Italian bike and parts dealer Millepercento, and will be sold as a custom machine from early 2015. Still, we’re looking at a piece of heavy custom bike-making, as it looks like the engine is one of the very few original Moto Guzzi elements in this awesome build. The frame is a custom one and the rear subframe was borrowed from another Millepercento bike, called Alba (Dawn). The stacked tubular structure with mind-blowing looks was signed by Giuseppe Ghezzi, from the very Ghezzi & Brian.

One of the most interesting facts about the Scighera is that it has been manufactured without sketches and digital modelling. Filippo Barbacane simply worked his way up from the bare frame and let the project develop almost by itself. Using cubes of solid material he sculpted and whose shapes he refined constantly, Barbacane came up with the final looks of the Scighera… and it just doesn’t get any more freestyle than this!

The ALS 450 frame retain a very short wheelbase which makes the Schighera very nimble, especially as it is powered by the Moto Guzzi Griso V8 air/oil-cooled v-twin. The 1,151cc lump packs 105 horsepower @ 7,600 rpm and 124,5 Nm (91.75 lb-ft) of torque at a more usable 4,900 rpm, and the 6-speed manual gear and shaft drive are sure to make riding it a blast.

Scighera received a full array of Öhlins suspensions and new, 24-spoke Borrani M-Ray.9 wheels. The hubs and fork clamps are made from billet aluminium. The Griso engine and the oil radiator receive cool air from two intakes on the sides, while the airbox was ditched in favor of a high-performance BMC conical air filter.

Officine Rossopuro used fiberglass for the bodywork and carbon fiber for the fenders, while a top-drawer HP Corse exhaust system was installed. Adjustable pegs and bars are also on the menu. The paint is a mixture of glossy and matte panels for an exquisite look, and Millepercento will offer the Scighera in its base version for €29,000 ($39,500). Various options (possibly the Millepercento big bore kit and more) raise the price to €34,000 ($46,300).
