Despite falling into the category of “function-first” design, the purpose-built, Buell-engined land speed racer from French motorcycle customizer Laurent Dutruel is both aesthetically pleasing and unbelievably fast. Created to reach speeds of 200 km/h on the Bonneville Salt Flats, the machine features an impressive 980cc V-twin engine, Mikuni HSR 48 carburetor and no suspension.

More work from Laurent Dutruel can now be found at the official website of Zen Motorcycles.
