Just what you need to ride in stealth mode around the urban landscape.
And if you wear camo pants, jacket and helmet, the zombies won’t see you!
Camouflage paint is often used on prototype motorcycles so that when the manufacturers take it out on public streets for testing, it disguises the shape of the motorcycle.
Gannet designer Ulfert Jansson says their aim was to produce a completely new appearance mainly by changing the proportions and handlebar position.
So it seems a little strange that Gannet would hide its custom work that radically changes the shape of the Honda.
“The contemporary camouflage graphics on the tank and the paneling was created by precise painting work and was gradually built up in seven layers,” Ulfert says.
“By using paint layers, we could control each single element and place it without any deformation you would get by using foil. Therefore the result is very precise and you can clearly see the impeccable paint job by Walter (Oberli).”
The bike was built by Stefan Fuhrer, a former MotoGP racing mechanic and his crew at Fuhrer Moto and was fitted with422 Corse parts such as Rotobox carbon fibre rims and CeraCarbon carbon forks.
The project started with initial loose sketches and design studies by Ulfert.
“Many people underestimate the importance of balance and proportion in a custom build,” Ulfert says.
“Just by changing the stance, angles and position slightly, you get an entire new perception and attitude of a bike.”
“The front is incredibly beautiful and hot,” Stefan says.
“Through CNC milling, we have created a new fixation design for the front light and the mini windshield.
