CCM Motorcycles will launch the latest incarnation of the Spitfire with a special 71 Heritage Titanium model…and only 71 models will be hand made.
It will take £1500 to secure the order after a huge response from the Motorcycle Live Show back in December. It will be officially unveiled at the London Motorcycle Show today and will cost £28,995.
According to CCM Motorcycles:
1971 – It all began with a passion to win. When young motorcycle racer Alan Clews became an unsuspecting bike manufacturer in Bolton, Lancashire. Alan was inspired by world motocross champion Jeff Smith, on his BSA works titanium-framed machine.
50 years on, CCM Motorcycles continue Alan’s legacy of building great British motorcycles by creating this exclusive Heritage Motorcycle.
As you gaze beyond the lustrous spars of this Super lightweight 3Al/2.5V CWSR Aerospace grade Titanium frame, your attention is instantly drawn to the Bespoke 7 Spoke Dymag race wheels, specially commissioned and optimized to shave 6kg off the unsprung weight.
Complimenting the lightweight philosophy, unique Raptor Titanium footpegs, a Ti Bolt Kit and QD Racing Full Titanium Exhaust System, handmade in 64 individually welded sections – reinforce the intent of this motorcycle.
A new Adaptive Cornering LED headlight illuminates the way and, as if this bike needed to attract any more attention, illuminated or not, it’s a real crowd-pleaser. Direction of travel provided care of new LED Sequential Multifunctional Indicators.
The riding position is classic CCM, relaxed but ready for fun, with a classic single saddle, trimmed with the finest semi-aniline hide in Beluga with contrasting gold perforations, sitting atop a solid aircraft-grade machined block of aluminium, bearing the signature of the original master bike builder himself, the late Alan Clews and precious enamel heritage CCM identity.
Ohlins Blackline, Brembo, Rizoma and artwork by Image Design Custom provide the finishing details.
