For those that have not seen this yet. It was posted a while back but there's no pictures plus the link to there site is down. So here it is again with pictures.


Built too late for the Terminator movies, this bike would have been perfect. This is the Yamaha R1 ?HighPressure? built by German tuning firm RF-Biketech. Other than the rather obvious blower and the rear tire which must be a 360, not to mention the front tire that?s pretty beefy, I can?t tell you much more about this. Their site doesn?t have a lot of information about it, but from what I can gather, many parts used on their custom streetfighters eventually find their way into the parts catalog. So if you fancy doing this to your own R1, they would be the guys to talk to.

Handling might be a bit off, but hey, you knew that. They don?t mention horsepower numbers which could be pretty impressive plus the sound of the blower would get you grinning. Wow!

It looks like they do a lot of streetfighter conversions on many different brands of motorcycles but this one just seems a bit more extreme than the others. Somewhere, there?s a movie waiting for this bike.

Did some exploring on their website...looks like the "Kompressorkit" bumps hp to about 221-222ish. Numbers are listed at 230 PS...1 PS is about .98hp. I think it will need every bit of that 360 tire!

The movie it needs to be in should be a horror flick, where the rider turns the bars to the right, and the upper part of the super charger rips his arm off from the elbow down :lol What is the tail ight from :dunno gixxer or Kawi ?

The top housing looked like it was only on the side of the bike or front of the pulley. It looked like the actual belt itself was exposed towards the front of the bike :dunno I could be wrong. Either way it is a cool "movie bike" but that's about it imho :dunno
