I was in two minds about posting this bike, and I’m sure you can guess why. But it’s making the news on the auto blogs—and allows us to appreciate our regular fare a little more. The Zapico is the first custom motorcycle from Mansory, a German tuning company. Mansory is known for customizing four-wheeled vehicles, particularly those that are absolutely fine in stock condition, such as Bentleys, Aston Martins and assorted Italian supercars. The Zapico, though, appears to be a ground-up build—reportedly by a chap called “Thomas M. George”, a new name to me. Most of the visible surfaces on this bike are carbon fiber, while the engine is an S&S 124ci V-twin, a mill that will be familiar to US-based bike builders. There’s no word on the price, which probably falls into the “If you have to ask” category. Rest assured that we won’t be featuring this one in next year’s Bike EXIF motorcycle calendar.
