Ecosse Moto Works has been building some interesting high end motorcycles for several years now. The Heretic is a hand built roadster with impressive equipment right from the start, a 130 horsepower, 1966cc V-Twin and top shelf pieces front to back. But, in pursuit of the fat wallet market, they've taken the Heretic and made a few changes.
The Heretic Titanium Series has a complete titanium frame and what bodywork there is, is all carbon fiber. The Engenuity Racing V-Twin engine is now a 2150cc, fuel injected, supercharged and intercooled monster putting out 200 horsepower and 210 foot pounds of torque, at the rear wheel! Transmission is a 6 speed and the exhausts, of course, are titanium also. Öhlins suspension front and rear with 17 inch carbon fiber wheels, wheelbase is 60.5 inches and weight is cited as about 440 pounds.
It looks like one helluva bike, but they head over the top when they pair it with one of those very expensive BRM watches, put it up on the Robb Report and sell the pair at $275,000! The standard Heretic, by comparison, is only $74,800. Of course, they're only making 10 sets so at least you won't see yourself across the intersection while waiting at the light. On the other hand, how many people actually buy these things and ride them?
Very nice bike, I'll take mine without the watch, thanks.
