VR customs' turbohero Xtreme is the world's quickest pizza delivery bike

based on a pizza delivery motorcycle, VR customs takes a hero ‘Xtreme 150’ and transforms it into this retro-styled drag bike. created by dubai-based VR customs, its ‘turbohero Xtreme’ was built for a competition that only asked for the engine to remain standard, giving it the opportunity to build something truly unique.

VR customs’ donor vehicle was taken straight from the showroom floor, and has been fitted with a raft of bespoke details. most of the frame is new, and is gusseted the frame for added strength. the ‘turbohero Xtreme’s’ fairing is a modern replica of a 1950’s MV agusta design. it is mounted with a 2 mm stainless plate inside the fairing, and 10 mm stainless tubing from the fairing onto the bike. the only other bodywork on the hero is a two-gallon peanut fuel tank.

 

just behind the tank is a hand-shaped seat pan, finished with a seat pad taken from a honda ‘CB750’ café racer. the rider’s ergonomics are in a pure drag position, with a set of aftermarket triumph ‘bonneville’ rear sets and billet clip-ons. tachometer and boost gauges have been mounted in a custom-built dash behind the front fairing, with a pair of biltwell inc. grips offering complete control.
