British company Spirit Motorcycles' Moto2 bike with headlights. The bike weighs 140 kgs and the engine is based on Trimph Daytona 675. The 749 cc engine churns out 180 hp power and the team aims to get the UK back to the top of the MotoGP podium.


The frame is chromoly steel tube, braze welded, with each tube's diameter and thickness set for optimum torsion and flex. The GP Sport's hand-made lightweight aluminum swingarm has a quick-release mechanism, vertically adjustable pivot position, adjustable wheelbase and another adjustable linkage to change ride height and the rising rate of the suspension linkage. Suspension is by K-Tech. Braking is a full set of race-spec gear from PFM, with twin 320 mm discs, 6 piston billet alloy calipers, and an adjustable ratio master cylinder. The rims are 5-spoke Dymag jobs made from carbon fiber and extruded aluminum, making them extremely lightweight.


It also gets most extreme track-focused electronics packages we've ever seen on a road-going motorcycle. The GP Sport has a 4G internet connection that allows a mechanic to monitor and fine-tune the bike's performance from anywhere in the world, from engine mappings, traction control and anti-wheelie gear, to suspension performance and slipper clutch settings.
