The Jaguar motor manufacturer is famous with their fast and reliable cars.But why do they produce cars that don't look like the beast they're named after? That was the thought of designer Byron Hemmes before he made the legendary motorcycle called Night Shadow, which has the form of logo of British manufacturer mentioned above.
The jaguar-looking motorcycle caught attention of many people. The bike stroke the fancy of everyone: as of core fans of iron horses, so of those, who prefer estheticism in every detail.
Hemmes made the bike as high-speed and hi-tech vehicle. His creation looks really gorgeous, even after going deep into electronics, power unit etc. Everyone seeing this Jaguar-bike on the road, will gaze after it for a long time.
The specs of this iron horse are also admirable as its design. Having 1.2 L engine, the Night Shadow can gain an impressive speed up to 200 km/h with no difficulties.
Innovative technologies made the Night Shadow motorcycle silent. It's a pity, though, that there is just a single copy of this motor-beast. The rumors say, that according to it, Byron established the price of more, than 500 000 $
Many custom-makers appreciate the work of Hemmes. They liked designer specs of the bike and experimental technology of the engine concept. Not many people can take the risk with form of motorcycle body frame as Byron did. The frame charms with a form of spectacular jump of jaguar.
Hemmes decided to place the engine a bit backward placing emphasis on bike body. The motor doesn't cover the frame like in most modern motorcycles. The Night Shadow is equipped with V-twin engine. Byron intentionally choose the power unit, sound of which resemples jaguar's roar best.
It is interesting that the wheels of Night Shadow were taken from Japanese sportbike. But the seat was made from scratch in chopper style. Such form of Jaguar's main functional components doesn't make it comfortable, but creates an inimitable design!
