SF01 Is the 780-Grams Carbon Ferrari You Can Afford

780 grams (1,72 pounds). That’s less than the weight of an unabridged dictionary, or your standard bag of rice. And it’s also the weight of this Ferrari bike’s frame.

In February, the world celebrated 122 years since the birth of Enzo Ferrari, one of the few men that single handedly changed the shape of the automotive industry. Two years prior, when the counter read 120 years, the Prancing Horse launched the SF01, a very limited edition bike with some incredible traits.

For some reason, despite the fact two years have passed since Ferrari turned 120, and the fact that the production run is limited to just 12 units, the bike is still available on the Ferrari Online Store.

Priced at €12,750 (that’s roughly $14,000), the bike has been developed together with performance brand Bianchi, and its frame is made entirely of carbon fiber. Taken alone, the frame weighs just 780 grams, which is at the top of the list of light bikes.

Painted in the carmaker’s Giallo Modena, the SF01 has all the elements it needs to trace its roots back to Ferrari and its involvement in motorsport. The seat, for instance, is finished in the same manner as the ones in the carmaker’s F1 cars, and the bike rides just like the racers on Pirelli P Zero tires.

There are seven sizes to choose from when ordering the bike, and the estimated time between order and shipment is of about a year. But the wait should be worth it.

“The SF01 bike celebrates the start of the collaboration between Scuderia Ferrari and Bianchi, two iconic brands of Italian design and creativity, expressing the very best of technological and aesthetic research and innovation within the context of contemporary cycling,” the bike’s description on the Ferrari store reads.
