PRLog - Oct. 8, 2011 - BOLOGNA, Italy -- The M4, NCR’s new lightweight street legal motorcycle, delighted the crowds today at the 7th annual Barber Vintage Festival. The international unveiling took place at 1:15 pm at the NCR Center located in the Ducstock area between turns 13 and 14.
The First Look - NCR M4 Unveiling Oct 8, 2011
The two versions of the new motorcycle, the M4 and M4 One Shot were revealed today. The presentation highlighted many of the M4’s special features as well as providing a demonstration of its modular design.
The M4’s features include an NCR derived traction control system, high grade military connectors, an array of carbon fiber, billet and titanium parts as well as premium braking and suspension components. The generous use of NCR carbon fiber and titanium parts allowed NCR to achieve amazing weight targets. The units only weigh 286 lbs and 278 lbs for the M4 and M4 One Shot, respectively.
“I can tell you about the M4’s power, torque and amazing light weight, however, words cannot adequately describe the experience of riding a motorcycle with those characteristics,”
The M4, although going through homologation for street-legal use in the United States, was built to perform on the race track. Therefore, another objective of the project was the ability to quickly transform the M4 to race trim. This goal was achieved with a modular design that allows the headlight/instrument cluster and tail section to be changed with just a few bolts and connectors. A two man NCR team demonstrated this process completing the task of changing the M4’s stock mini headlight/instrument cluster and titanium rear subframe assembly with an optional race fairing and structural carbon fiber tail section. The process was quickly accomplished in front of an amazed crowd.
NCR was also pleased to participate in last night’s Motorcycles by Moonlight dinner for the benefit of the Barber Vintage Museum. At the event supporters were given a sneak preview of the M4. NCR is thrilled that both the Friday evening and Saturday crowds gave an enthusiastic reception to the sight and sounds of the M4.
