For its very first project, French customizers PRAËM — helmed by an an ex-BMW Motorrad designer and former aerospace technician in the French army — have taken on the Honda VTR1000 to create the high-powered SP3. Built outside of Paris over the course of the past year and originally unveiled at the Paris Motor Show back in December, the SP3 — so named because of its VTR1000 RC51 SP2 base — pushes PRAËM’s philosophy that performance should never be compromised. As such, the bike employs everything from a magnesium and aluminum engine (capable of 165 hp), a race-worthy Öhlins suspension, and Brembo brakes with Sicom carbon-ceramic discs to ultra-lightweight Rotobox carbon fiber wheels, an enlarged fuel tank cutout to prevent the rear cylinder from overheating (a problem for the stock SP2), a combination of brushed aluminium and stainless steel paneling, and much more. The design even features sculptural details inspired by Brooklyn-based Korean artist Seung Mo Park.

Take a good look at the SP3 above and head on over to PRAËM’s website for more info. The bike is set to be auctioned off by Bonhams in Paris come February 4.
