“In my experience, saving weight wherever you can always results in a better performing motorcycle. The weight reduction program for the Bol d’Or starts with the use of high tech composite to replace the plastic OEM bodywork. Using a specially formulated epoxy Kevlar matrix for the newly styled 20 liter gas tank reduces the weight significantly to lb. All the bodywork combined (including fairing stay) weighs only lb. Additional weight reduction is achieved by our aluminum subframe, the lightweight high performing exhaust system, and our WSM rear sets machined from 7075-T651 aerospace grade aluminum.
