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. Inspired by Japan’s Saga MC Hagakure motorcycle, Dutruel’s creation shows off a painstakingly crafted, fully bespoke, exhaust, fuel tank, frame and fork system. More work from Laurent Dutruel can now be found at the official website of Zen Motorcycles.
