American Quinn Cody will be riding selected events this year
SPEEDBRAIN 450 RALLY
Speedbrain’s rally race machine is based off the original
BMW G450X’s engine but with a chassis using suspension
linkage. Speedbrain uses WP suspension components,
front and rear. It’s a water-cooled, 449cc, four-stroke, sin-gle-cylinder, fuel-injected engine and is electric start only.
Akrapovic’s complete titanium rally exhaust system helps
in the performance department, giving it a top speed of
approximately 105 mph. Extra fuel tanks are added to the
rear of the motorcycle, giving it a total fuel capacity of
around 8 gallons and will add about 50 pounds to the
already-healthy dry weight of 293 pounds. Rally racers are
not light by any means, but Speedbrain saves weight
wherever possible, like the completely carbon Kevlar faring, LED rally lights and navigation tower. The Speedbrain
rally motorcycle is the only machine available for the general public to purchase that is almost exactly as the riders
race it. The price is a little steep at 20,000 Euro, which is
about $26,000 U.S. dollars.
