The GIVEN REDSHIFT is the natural evolution of the note CR&S DUU, motorcycle exclusively produced in small circulation by the motorcycle manufacturer meneghina with artisan mold.
When in 2013 duu the project was interrupted by ill-feeling interior to CR&S, its Lead designer Donato Cannatello, After a brief stint in Matchless, He decided to open his own design center, and to carry forward the project duu, now orphaned of its creators, however, using the cooperation and approval of the original founders of the exclusive motorcycle, as well as of the operational manpower, thanks to the unchanged esteem and friendship.
The original bike has been developed according to those who were certain stylistic standards identified at the time as a natural evolution of the model "Biotta" ("Naked" ed) on occasion presented by the company.
The redesign has obviously focused on new rock steady front end, replacing the original inverted fork with an innovative system to the central cushion and lateral sliding sheaths. Laprogettazione the new front end is born to the computer, creating all the components by means of three-dimensional modeling and analysis FEM , which it has also allowed us to analyze every single part through the control of the forces to which it is subjected.
The components have been realized by means of CNC removal technology (Numerical Control
computerized) with billet milling.
The design (or rather the realization) of different copper components is the quid which gave the chromatic and handicraft character to the motorcycle.
Starting from the original forms of car body parts, through traditional typing technology based on pitch, They have taken shape some elements that bring with themselves the manual work of skilled craftsmen certosini of the noble metal.
The REDSHIFT is still a motorcycle every day, not only by performance.
One of the main components that meet this idea is the new passenger seat / tail that has a double meaning, on one side, "Cover car" with a base made of aluminum billet which creates a visual continuity with the geometry of the tail / tank, while simply turning it turns out the padded saddle to accommodate the passenger if necessary.
The project name "Redshift", the phenomenon by which the light emitted by an astral object has a wavelength greater size than the one he had in emission, shiftando its color to red, It symbolizes the evolution of duu, from small motorbikes to only bike series evolved.
- The red shift is the phenomenon by which light emitted from an object has a longer wavelength than that which had in emission.
This means that the color turns to red.
- The most important is the REDSHIFT in cosmology, due to the expansion of the universe. The stars in particular show a redshift corresponding to the speed with which increases their distance from the earth.
- Copper is used on our duu its displacement from the original duu, aging will change its color, assuming the chromatic variations that the material will take.
ITALIAN MOTORCYCLE CONTEST
"BEST OF SHOW 2018"
Our CARRIES "Redshift" He won the award "BEST OF SHOW" the national contest IMC , clashing with other bikes beautiful and of the highest level.
This obviously fills us with pride and motivates us to do even better.
The CR&S DUU It is a bike that we know very well, we have collaborated in the development directly in CR&S by following the style and engineering to start up direct customizations for the most demanding customers.
Now we have created a version, showcase of our design capabilities, where we could fully express our ideas about motorcycle-style and where to apply the most of the criteria that have always accompanied us: functionality, aesthetics, attention to detail and aversion to the paint and covers all futile.
Our CR&S duu has obviously been the subject of a deep customization mainly due to the fact that the model from which it derives, the CR&S DUU “Biotta”, born as version “naked” CR&S DUU original. Due to incomplete development of the initial project in CR&S, however, the bike has been “denúdala” (Biotta n.d.r.) only the front, leaving a strange mix of naked front (even too much) and the rear that instead still had parts in traditional plastic bodywork… Too rough for a bike of this caliber!
We then tried to rebalance the style between the front and rear, slightly overlapping onto the first and the second stripping.
In Given we then shaped duu in CAD before and then in aluminum, almost everything Aluminum, almost everything to CAD.
Some parts have preferred her hand on the spur of the moment (it is always fair to leave a part of the work to the heart), but mostly the bike has been entirely designed, displayed and then made, all with a work-flow that now characterizes us and sees us among the the technical pioneers.
The bike has been the result of a lot of work, in general our approach to projects always involves a preliminary phase of 2D concept which we submit to the client (be it business or private), where we try to make clear all the points that will be subjected to interventions and mainly try to identify immediately the two most important parameters: Volumes and style.
Once this is done we proceed with the project definition, developing it with the use of computers, but also the pencil or directly mechanical workshop.
All pieces designed by CAD systems have been realized in CNC machined from aluminum parts or plexiglass or ABS and other materials. With our expertise in project area we designed from scratch the rear light assembly is a self-illuminating frieze that recalls our logo without being too obvious.
