“In my experience, saving weight wherever you can always results in a better performing motorcycle. The weight reduction program for the Bol d’Or starts with the use of high tech composite to replace the plastic OEM bodywork. Using a specially formulated epoxy Kevlar matrix for the newly styled 20 liter gas tank reduces the weight significantly to 3.5 lb. All the bodywork combined (including fairing stay) weighs only 8.5 lb. Additional weight reduction is achieved by our aluminum subframe, the lightweight high performing exhaust system, and our WSM rear sets machined from 7075-T651 aerospace grade aluminum.
I had the opportunity at a track day to compare the weights of a factory F3 and the WSM "Bol d'Or". The stock F3 weighed in at 421 lbs. The WSM "Bol d'Or" came in at 340 lbs, with one gallon of fuel and oil in the crank case.
A ram air system was created to get the best out of the highly tuned 3-cylinder engine. The diameter of the air intakes was increased and they were tucked into the front of the fairing. To get the most out of these modifications and to gain better torque and horsepower, the ECU is flashed with a fully tunable performance program.
The experience of riding such a lightweight motorcycle with its razor sharp handling and the engine performance of the legendary MV Agusta technology, engulfed by a sound similar to that of a Formula One car is difficult to put into words. It needs to be experienced.” — Walt Siegl
