Associated British Motorcycles launching Gemini ‘Naked’ and ‘Indianapolis’ customs, built by Tony Scott at T3 Racing
OFF TO the London bike show this weekend? Why not, eh? And here’s an extra reason to pop up to the Excel Centre in Docklands – a pair of new super-naked specials, built in the UK with top notch components, based around tuned 160bhp Speed Triple motors and frame/swinging arm.
Limited to just 50 bikes, the Gemini machines will be on show on the Ace Cafe stand, where you can check out their slick spec – much of which comes from within these islands. So the brake calipers are by British firm HEL Performance, as is the Maxton rear shock, Dymag carbon wheels (on the naked) and EBC discs and pads. The motors have ported and skimmed heads, high-lift cams and an ECU flash that gives an extra 1,000rpm up top, woo!
The ‘Naked’ is a pure cafe racer design, while the ‘Indianapolis’ has a US flat-tracker feel, with number boards, Kineo spoked tubeless rims, and pull-back handlebars.
Tony Scott, founder of Associated British Motorcycles said, “We have been making custom and one-off bespoke motorcycles under the banner of T3 since 2010, firstly with the acclaimed Ace Thruxton 904S and then our M2-11 GP2 project. Our recent breakaway from long term commitments has now allowed us to re-direct the business over to our long-term ambition of making our own motorcycles.
“The Gemini Twins suit our entry in to the market place perfectly: they are British, they are inspired and they are edgy, creating a great buying opportunity for those looking for something very special, as well as those who are on a more limited budget but would like to add a great, new-look to a motorcycle they already own.”
There’ll be more details and price revealed at the London show, which kicks off this Friday (Feb 15th). More info in the meantime at www.associatedbritishmotorcycles.com
