If you want bike performance with the safety of car like handling then you need look no further. Simply buy a tR1ke kit and then add the power train from a Yamaha R1 motorcycle.
The chassis is a fully triangulated steel space frame, designed to achieve an extremely high level of strength capable of producing a torsional strength of more than 2,500 Nm per degree. The main tubulars are arranged efficiently to absorb the loads at the node points such as the roll hoop and the top of the suspension connection points. The design used computer simulated loads and was then refined through actual testing.
Length: 8.83 ft (2.69meters)
Width: 5.83 ft (1.78 meters)
Height: 3.67 ft (1.12 meters)
Weight: About 715 lbs (334 kilos)
No front brakes are provided in the kit. Optional Wilwood 4 pot calipers, discs, hubs and brakes (or optional high spec kit) are recommended. Entire rear brake disc package comes from R1 donor.
The standard power plant is the 150 hp 998cc Yamaha R1 engine and transmission obtained from the donor. These units are not the most powerful in their field but offer excellent value for the money. With 150 hp on tap in car that weighs in at 715 lbs, this results in a horsepower to weight ratio of 4.9 – supercar territory indeed.
Ride quality is always a personal preference and so the tR1ke features fully adjustable suspension settings. The all round coil over shock absorbers can be adjusted in ride height and damping. Basically the perfect feel can be achieved to suit all drivers. The standard steering rack supplies 2.8 turns lock to lock but a quicker 2.4 option is available.
