The first step in building this custom R nineT was to use CAD (Computer Aided Design) modelling.After John Red Design made the sketch,Mikhail Smolanovymchanged the suspension settings to reduce the ground clearance and get the bike as close to the asphalt as possible.

The entire motorcycle is covered with a fairing designed in the most futuristic way to hide all the mechanical parts.Only the1,170 ccboxerengineremains visible.There are no technical details regarding its power, but as standard, the engine delivers110 hpat 7,750 rpm.

The exhaust system is made by hand, the brakes have been replaced byBrembo calipersand even the wheels have been customised with multiple spokes.Also, the suspension has been modified to reduce the seat height.Everything to make the R nineT an exhibition motorcycle.

In addition, theheadlight,pilotand dashboard are also custom-made.The rear view mirrors hang from the handlebars and you even have a storage space under the seat where the Russian designer has placed aUSBsocketto charge yoursmartphone.
