The Honda RC-51 Is Re-imagined In The Form Of The Praëm SP3

Praëm SP3

This is probably the most interesting Honda RC-51 you will ever see. Actually, only Honda aficionados will probably notice that this used to be, at some point, a Honda VTR1000SP1 motorcycle.

But that was a long time ago, as a new French motorcycle company called Praëm has put this bike through a serious redesign. The Praëm SP3 is the product of Sylvain & Florent Berneron, two talented minds with backgrounds as BMW Motorrad designers and studies in aeronautics and mechanics.

With that in mind, it should not come as a surprise this bike looks absolutely incredible. The Praëm SP3 features Öhlins suspension, Rotobox carbon fiber wheels, high performance Brembo brakes and carbon discs, as well as various other high-tech components courtesy of Rizoma.

The most interesting design feature is the fact that the bike’s fairings weren’t built from metal sheets, but they’re actually made from a countless number of wires that have been pulled taught over a backing and frame. The effect is amazing, with Praëm SP3 looking eye-catching, to say the least.

The bike is previewing future models from Praëm, so it’s definitely worth keeping an eye on this talented team.
