That is when Porsche Design comes into play, as the company has just expanded its Driver's Selection range with the addition of two innovative bikes.
The two-wheeled creations in questions are dubbed Bike RS (Rennsport) and Bike S. Taken separately, the Bike RS comes with a high end carbon frame and a newly developed modular monocoque construction. The rest of its equipment comes from competition proven race technologies.

On the other hand, the Porsche Bike S features a high performance aluminium 7005 frame, a toothed belt drive system and 11 speed Shimano Alfine IGH. Latest generation of hydraulic Magura disk brakes and 29" wheels are also featured.
A further highlight of the Bike RS and the Bike S is the integrated anti-theft protection that comes as standard. An anti-theft label containing an individual code number is located under the paint on the frame and has a surprising effect on theft. By registering the bike on a dedicated website, Porsche Bikes can be reported as stolen at any time and buyers can check whether the bike has been reported as stolen before they buy.
The Porsche RS and S bikes will be launched in worldwide markets from autumn 2011 in sizes S, M and L.
