Every once in a while, we come across a concept or a sketch that’s just so ludicrous or outlandish that it stops us dead in our tracks, pry our jaws open and demands a standing ovation. This is one of such moments. Say hello to the Dragon TT Atila 1000R, a concept bike unveiled at the EICMA two years back but one that came to our attention just now. Built by Madrid-based builder MotoYE and designed by Sapnish company Dragon TT, the radical-looking Atila employs a modified Yamaha GTS-1000 frame, suspension parts from Öhlins and Moriwaki, brakes from Brembo, while the headlight cluster is borrowed off a 2005 Yamaha R6. Motive power for the concept comes from a 1000cc Yamaha R1 inline-four, churning out 165 PS of peak power. Putting it down to the tarmac are 120/60 R17 front and 180/55 R17 rear tyres.
Want one? The Atila 1000R will set you back by roughly $52,000 in the US of A, which is a staggering sum for a motorcycle but then again, it is a small price to pay for such exotic design and exclusivity.
