Suzuki Falcorustyco


we will run faster, stretch out our farther…and then one fine we’ll wake up and say what did happen to that beautiful anyway?

Call them you will—show bikes. concept future bikes. whatever—they’ve around for a long time. they point the way to the future, of the time they should a sign that says END. But the fun part is that knows for sure at the time.

The memorable concept bike of the era may have been the  Falcorustyco  ( gyrfalcon  in Latin – above), which appeared at the Tokyo Motor Show. can deny it all they want, but it like the similarity between the and the light cycles in  Tron are a little too coincidental.

Powered by a square-Four four-… with cams and packed with drive,” hub-center steering, all of it was “so advanced in its development that it be produced almost immediately,” Suzuki. In January, 1986,  CW “you won’t have to a decade to see its like on the street.” In the Falco looks like it have been a simple diversion to throw curious off the GSX-R trail—a conspiracy that unravels when you in that the GSX-R had already introduced earlier that Maybe the ’rustyco was just an diversion to keep the troublemaker away from the GSX-R?

Suzuki that had already introduced, three years the Falcorustyco, was the  1982 Katana . Penned by ex-BMW designer Hans Muth for the market, where high-speed and aerodynamics are important, the Katana’s is not difficult to see in the concept bikes came after it (right to the suede seat).

Possibly happily bemused at the reception the had received, Suzuki was back at the Tokyoshow with the  . This one, they is functional—not that anybody got to  see  it function. To keep it real, said the Nuda contained a engine, and then it was off to Tomorrowland and babbling on about two-wheel drive, hub-center steering and the Total Engine Control computer -controlled fuel-injection regulated by air/fuel sensors, sensor and engine-rpm sensor.

right! In any case, it all paid off in the of the GSX1300R Hayabusa in 1999.

As with every show come to fruition, the stylists got a lot of they wanted, and the technicians the hub-steered dreams and three-cam woke up alone on the couch yet Not that it mattered in the case of the Its boring old inline-Four, telescopic and singleshock rear end provided than enough kinesthetic

Back in the U.S.A. meanwhile, we were busy rolling our Having made quite a chunk of change by selling a fairing to everybody in America a motorcycle, Craig Vetter cranking out his futuristic, modified  Mystery Ship.  Stylistically, the Ship looks like a of … end, but thematically, Vetter knew exactly motorcycles were headed.

And now it had occurred to somebody that protection and  styling good ideas and didn’t to be mutually exclusive, the floodgates open.

The  Bates  (see ad above) fairing your bike look it’s doing a constant double-take.  What the?! storage, though.

And when the Aspencade got its first factory in 1982, the basic difference was Honda moved the trunk to the of the motorcycle.

Soon, the fiberglass was flowing like Gallo unfortunately, much of it flowed molds that could’ve a little more time in the One example was the creation of British John Mockett  for the new XS11 and available Over as a dealer option; it never the Pond. Just as well: It like a boating accident.

Meanwhile, in Bavaria… The  BMW  first appeared in 1973, by a turbocharged Boxer Twin in a reminiscent of the classic dustbin, but hints of shapes yet to appear—including a auto-motive trunk Honda put to good use in its Pacific Coast 16 later.

And 17 years after the in 1990, that trunk wrapped around BMW’s “flying brick” K100, (literally)  K1  and, for the first marketed to compete directly the Japanese superbikes. Heavy, buzzy, hot, uncomfortable and with some characteristics did  not  appeal to BMW devotees, 650 of a total run of 2400 bikes reportedly sold in the U.S. BMW-guy devotion with fanaticism, and it’s not hard to the loyalty of the current K1 cult.

This was an FZR400 named after a genus of South merican butterfly. In to its hub-steered front end, the claim to fame was adjustable Its bars and mini-fairing swiveled up and and its seat and footpegs were adjustable.

In on the other hand, Honda’s fuel-injected  NR750  appeared, for public consumption and looking exactly like the prototype three years earlier at the Motor Show. In fact, the V-Four at the heart of the NR had been in since 1977, when decided a V-Eight disguised as a was the only way to achieve four-… with the two-… GP machines.

It’s not so to translate “futuristic” into and carbon-reinforced plastic when only building three a day by hand—200 total—and charging for each one.

Shooting in the dark with a of rear-facing bazookas at the 1999 show, the  Yamaha (pictured below) was sort of parts tube-frame Buell and As a concept bike, it showed could be done by rearranging parts; and when a production appeared nearly everywhere but in the for 2005, it didn’t look different from the show

The torquey (a claimed 150 foot-pounds at rpm!), 1670cc Twin the Road Star Warrior fit in, and the fork and swingarm from the looked right at home. On the hand, the small-batch MT did have a controlled-fill cast aluminum which must have its cost up considerably. For U.S. the MT-01 remains a “show though Yamaha still it in many other markets, Canada.

“Streamlining,” wrote Cameron in a February, 2002, about the star of the 2001 Show, “would just be an to the air-crushing power of the supercharged Correct! The  Suzuki added a belt-driven supercharger to the reasonably potent 1299cc four-banger to produce over 200

And a fat, 240-section rear under a huge pair of  maximi  exhausts encouraged the dullest bystanders to take and clear the blast area. when the B-King entered in 2006, the supercharger was nowhere to be (you’d have to make do only 164.8 hp and 99.5 of torque), and those huge cans hanging over a tire gave the look of a who hadn’t spent enough working on his legs.

the experimental  Honda NAS  (New Sports) design exercise at the Laguna Seca World round in 2001, it made splash to appear on the October, cover of  Cycle World . It was a tarted-up version of the VTR1000F Hawk, a great Honda had already been in production for years by the time the NAS appeared. The Honda skunkworks basically one of the best Hondas ever for street use and made it apparently and less affordable than the that already existed.

As for the trick perimeter front disc and underengine exhaust the NAS shared the cover with the (production) Buell XB9R, came standard with Honda’s design team the New American Sportbike was about the focus back on street instead of racing, which was confusing, given that’s how the Super Hawk had been a machine that was (and is) an sportbike for the real world.

The motorcycle was cruising full speed when the blue-sky  Kawasaki  (pictured above) appeared on the in January, 2004, resplendent in smooth bodywork with saddlebags and truly futuristic gear that included   perimeter brake discs were supposed to cool Again they teased us adjustable ergonomics, this in the form of handlebars that with the (fake) gas tank and to allow the rider to go racy or at will, and with electric leading edges that allow airflow adjustment.

As the bubble continued to inflate no end in sight and motorcycles sales toward the 2005 high-watermark, designers brazenly pursued significant others via softer, curves that would go with the new Shabby Chic ensemble. When reality reared its head in the form of the Concours 14, precious little of the remained; the new bike was way more ZX-14 than ZZR.

If you you were going to introduce a bike as radical as the Victory in a year or two, what way to prepare everybody than to an even  radicaller  concept of the same name at the Long (California) International Motorcycle The  Victory Vision 800 of 2006 was more of an urban propelled by an 800cc snowmobile running through a CVT, but the Tour’s direction was already in the boomerang cab-forward sweep of the

It was a nice try on Victory’s part, but riders tend to be a conservative many of whom still quite accepted the Vision’s Like the citizens of Rome off blocks of Coliseum to build and Pizza Huts, the Vision’s aluminum frame concept has on to form the foundation for more styled bikes like the Country and now the Hard-Ball, complete ape hangers. It ain’t easy a visionary.
