PRLog - Oct. 3, 2011 - BOLOGNA, Italy -- NCR is pleased to announce a new street legal motorcycle being homologated for the US market. The new NCR M4 derives from years of building and racing the NCR Millona to many victories and championships in many countries. The Millona is known for it's light weight and amazing handling. Using the same basic geometry and concept, the M4 was designed to be as light or lighter in street trim than the original Millona was in race trim.
NCR a proud Ducstock sponsor
The air cooled NCR M4 comes with a titanium frame and subframe along with carbon fiber tank, wheels, instrument cluster, airbox, oil cooler housing and fenders. An innovative central electronic package allows for quick disconnects by way of top grade military connectors along with access to many features by way of an USB computer interface and software. NCR exotic parts like billet triple clamps, fork bottoms, rearsets along with Brembo radial controls and calipers and Ohlins suspension front and back add to the impressive list of features. The NCR M4 has a MSRP of $49,900 US plus applicable taxes, shipping and dealer preparation. Expected first deliveries in Spring 2012.
The NCR M4 is modular in design in that the front headlight/instrument cluster can be changed to a mini, half or full fairing with the simple swap of two bolts and a connector. The same can be done with the tail section. The stock titanium rear subframe assembly can be swapped for a full carbon fiber street tail or carbon race tail with 5 bolts and a connector. The goal was to be able to swap from street trim to track trim in less than five minutes. Mission accomplished!!!
The NCR M4 comes in two models.
The NCR M4 has an air-cooled 1100cc Ducati EVO engine and produces 107 hp at 7,500 rpm, torque of 84 ft-lbs (115 Nm) and a weight of 286 lbs (130 kg) with oil and battery. MSRP of $49,900 US plus applicable taxes, shipping and dealer preparation.
The NCR M4 One Shot comes with a NCR Ducati 1200 air-cooled EVO motor complete with billet stroker crank, titanium connecting rods, titanium hardware throughout and NCR-EVR slipper clutch. The NCR M4 One Shot produces 132 hp at 8,700 rpm, torque of 105 ft-lbs of torque (143 Nm) and a weight of 278 lbs (126 kg) and has a MSRP of $69,900 US plus applicable taxes, shipping and dealer preparation.
NCR produces a large variety of parts for the NCR M4 and NCR M4 One Shot including full titanium race systems, front end and tail section options along with several hundred different parts and accessories.
NCR aims to redefine motorcycling by setting a new standard in light weight, simplicity and pureness of design and technology. “It is difficult to describe what a 278 lbs, 1200cc street bike feels like because it is not like anything you have tried before. After riding a NCR M4, it is difficult to enjoy riding a motorcycle weighing 100 to 150 lbs more, regardless of the amount of horsepower it may have,” said NCR M4 designer and NCR C.O.O., Joe Ippoliti.
