LE PAROLE

"It seems obvious that this 1995 Guzzi cafe racer comes from the hands of an industrial designer. Its mechanical vibe speaks to Eduardo Nauiack’s obsession with extracting function over form. When you learn of the trials and tribulations he faced, the rawness of the bike begins to make sense. The Brazilian-cum-Californian builder spent months correcting previously flawed modifications and hunting down electronic gremlins, before starting work on the custom rear subframe and component upgrades."

the re-design moved outwards from the motorcycle bare bones Improving wiring,  electronics, riding position and design style, weight efficiency and more. wiith this the final performance tuning took place, with a foundation to be built further upon. These performance upgrades involved studies on deeper applied thermodynamics TO design an effective exhaust system ALONG WITH fluid dynamics understanding on air velocity and fuel mixture to create the strongest, cleanest combustion mixture delivered by the 40mm Del'Orto carburetors.

francesca reached completion of phase 1 of the build, to SERVE AS the future cafe mark I and become The carrying vessel OF the proof of concept 3d printed fairings. the MOTORCYCLE  reception from the community was very positive, with visibility raised to the release of the future cafe mark I on the summer of 2016.

THE MOTORBIKE, A 1995 1100CC MOTO GUZZI, WAS ONE OF THE LAST CARBURETED 1000CC SIZED SPORT-BIKE OF ITS TIME. DURING THE MID 90S, MOST MOTORCYCLE BRANDS WENT THROUGH A GREAT PARADIGM AND POTENTIAL SHIFT IN MOTORCYCLE PRODUCTION. THE INTRODUCTION OF FUEL INJECTION DID NOT ONLY MAKE ENGINES AND MOTORCYCLES FASTER AND MORE EFFICIENT, IT ALSO MADE THEM MORE COMPLEX. UPGRADING PERFORMANCE BECAME ABOUT REPLACING A COMPUTER CHIP, SQUEEZING OUT TORQUE BECAME ABOUT SHIFTING MODES, PRECISE CORNERING BECAME ABOUT ACTIVE SUSPENSION AND  TRACTION CONTROL, STOPPING BECAME ABOUT ABS,  RIDING BECAME ABOUT THE HELP. 

THE DISTANCE BETWEEN LEARNING CURVE AND AVAILABLE  PERFORMANCE INCREASED, ALONG WITH THE FORMER'S COMPLEXITY AND THE LATTER'S HEADWAY.

​KNOWLEDGE BRINGS CONFIDENCE, WITH CONFIDENCE COMES SPEED.

with the aim to bring the motorcycle to known proportions of classic motorcycle design, no  part of the development went un-touched by critical attention to detail and pragmatic decision making. The design considered general proportion and lines of the most iconic cafe racers of the 70s, such as the BMW R80, BMWR69S and the ducati 750ss desmo, from which the rear seat  shape was drawn. the subframe was crafted to match the seat and the frame in a aesthetic and functiona manner, providing the right structure to support the rider and the re-located battery  now under seat cowl.
