Mansory Zapico bike: official details, specs and images

Article by Christian A., on March 4, 2011

Mansory has released details and photos of the Zapico, the motorcycle it built together with bike customizer Thomas M. George. The bike is powered by a 124 cubic inch (2,080 cubic cm) V2 engine, which comes from American engine builder S&S. Mansory is known for creating high-power vehicles and this bike is no different.

The engine of this tiny 340 kg bike has been tweaked into generating 160hp (higher than the average power output of most of the production series car models in the world).

The 0-60mph acceleration rate of the Zapico of 3.3 seconds makes it worthy of any race track. This bike’s design is simple and doesn’t have any of the flashy details on some production version bikes. Instead, it features carbon on most of the body of the cruiser.

Mansory designed the front mask, bug spoiler, seat module, primary shield and silencer, and its most customizable feature on a bike, the fuel tank, to be in colors that match the carbon feel. The price has not been revealed. The Zapico is a show-and-tell machine, which was built to advertise Mansory’s capabilities. If you’re interested and if you can afford it, then Mansory can build it for you.

High-end manufacturer MANSORY has received a number of accolades for its top quality four-wheeled luxury vehicles. However its original custom bike is also well-known. Of the many bikes in its portfolio, one of the most impressive is the MANSORY bike Zapico. While this was developed in partnership with well-known bike customization expert Thomas M. George, the influence of Kourosh Mansory, company boss, is still evident.

An example of this is the use of the best carbon that has been extravagantly processed and then used to decorate this remarkable cruiser. Most of the parts and features have been made at the MANSORY facility which is located in the town of Brand down in Bavaria’s Upper Palatinate region. These include the silencer, primary shield, bug spoiler, front mask, and seat module. Manufactured in the same facility as well are the airbox, wheel rims, frame, fork, and fuel tank.

The leatherwork in this bike is yet another example of the beautiful craftsmanship that is clearly MANSORY. Since 1989, Kourosh Mansory and his talented team have been involved in customizing a number of brands that include Rolls Royce, Ferrari, Aston Martin, Porsche and Bentley.

MANSORY is all about combining the use of the finest materials and application of master craftsmanship with high technology production. Serving as the foundation of its technology are the number of aerodynamic packages, powerful engine performance, and the aluminum ultra-light wheels.

Completing this amazing package are the stylish interiors and the availability of top-of-the-line accessories. MANSORY has a workforce of more than 80 people and is capable of meeting the demands of any sharp customer. Models are available in Switzerland, Germany, and selected sales partners worldwide.

MANSORY Zapico custom bike

It's not only for four-wheeled luxury vehicles that the top-quality range from high-end manufacturer MANSORY has received awards; its genuine custom bike is famous too. This is shown most impressively by the MANSORY bike Zapico, developed in collaboration with bike customiser Thomas M. George.

The hand of company boss Kourosh Mansory is plain to see: the finest carbon, most lavishly processed, decorates the impressive-looking cruiser while the front mask, bug spoiler, seat module, primary shield and silencer as well as the applications on the fuel tank, the frame, fork, wheel rims and airbox all originate from the MANSORY factory in the town of Brand in the Upper Palatinate region of Bavaria. The bike's leatherwork is further testament to the exquisite craftsmanship applied – unmistakeably MANSORY.

The custom bike is driven by a powerful 124 cubic inch (around 2,080 cm_) V2 engine made by the well-known American engine manufacturer S&S. This large two-cylinder engine delivers a full 160 hp to the extra-large rear tyres and can accelerate the 340 kg bike from 0 to 100 km/h in just 3.3 seconds.

Company owner and namesake Kourosh Mansory and his team have been customising exclusive car brands like Aston Martin, Bentley, Ferrari, Porsche and Rolls Royce since 1989. MANSORY stands for high-tech production combined with master craftsmanship and the finest materials. Harmoniously designed aerodynamics packages, ultra-light aluminium wheel rims and powerful engine performance upgrades form the basis of the company's technology range. Top-quality accessories and stylish interiors complete the range.
