This bike was created for a very special person, consequently the bike itself should not be too "special", already is its user.
We then created an object that does not give too much attention, it was discreet and elegant but subtly extravagant.
As often happens in these cases, the object originates from a particular which gives the "LA" to all, in this case the wheels are in 144 provenance rays Indonesian, from these we go for the overall project, using an aluminum frame hand made in Italy and a fork "MTB old school" reinterpreted.
Very important, driveability / usability has been enhanced to the maximum, with a single gear ratio, but just for the comfortable departures for good
only on the front brake and the freewheel to the rear.
The painting course required many hands of paint and several attempts to find the right balance between visibility and elegance, but we're sure you turn on a bike so it will be a pleasure for its lucky owner!
CR&S OF “CEFEIDE”
A Cepheid is a young giant star that pulsates regularly changing its brightness in a regular cycle stremamente.
Their high brightness makes Cepheid stars the standard parameter to measure the distance of globular clusters and galaxies.
Our VUN as Cepheid is a reference in the motorcycle world for its timelessness and unparalleled.
An exercise in exquisite elegance motorcycle. the CR&S VUN is a special and exclusive motorcycle, hand-built by a small Milan renowned motorcycle manufacturer in the world for his creations exclusive and refined performance. Built in only 50 specimens, mounting a frame assembly trellis Mixed steel tubes with aluminum plates 7075 milled from solid atelier Rhizome. The standard suspension offer high performance while remaining linked to a traditional constructive schema. The front fork, realized by Paioli, It is the only one of its class to have a traditional configuration combined with a considerable diameter and radial attachment of the front caliper for single disc. The rear shock absorber instead is mounted in a horizontal position above the wheel with direct attack, very stiff and sporty. The engine is a Rotax 652cc single-cylinder that offers so much torque and 54 horses tree.
Everything has voted to keep the weight and then exaggerate the pleasure and driving precision. In this sense, the superstructures are minimized and realized with the most noble materials such as hand-wrought aluminum for the tank and carbon for automotive body parts.
Come ex-Lead designer in CR&S, no other, better Donato Cannatello and its present motorcycle engineering teams GIVEN, They could work on the reconstruction of a motorcycle so important and exclusive.
Work on VUN saw a complete reconstruction "frame-off", where the bike was broken up in every piece to remove the original paint of the chassis and the engine and go to work with abundance on the swingarm and the important details but hidden. For this purpose all machined and finished parts have been treated with procedures as natural as possible so as to preserve the mechanical characteristics of each piece, then the frame has been wet with a very light coating of nickel that will protect the surface from oxidation while the aluminum parts were hand-brushed so as to leave exposed the noble material.
The rebuilding process has affected many small details of the bike, some redesigned and reconstructed using the CAD for steel CNC techniques, aluminum and ABS, but also with more 3D printing techniques for plastic parts.
All changes are aimed at maintaining the excellent details and functionality of this already fantastic bike, its engine, its performances and the high specialization of the construction method. The engine and the intake system have remained substantially the same to preserve the constructive and above all homologation characteristics. In this way the "body-kit" It can be universally used on similar motion.
A lot of effort was put into updating the swingarm instead, mounting a double arm in die-cast aluminum, bolted with a central plate that has reported the geometric characteristics of the original quota, thus allowing to preserve the excellent chassis of the bike.
For a bike so special we opted for an intervention "aggiornativo" keeping the important characteristics and improving those in CR&S could not care for reasons of cost to the public.
The result is a highly recognizable bike but with a strong personality and elegance, which preserves both performance and exclusivity that possibility of daily use. We love it.

Our “Spring Summer” is a concept bike from city aimed at a female audience of high-end.
E’ It was created for a famous fashion brand and reflects the characteristics of style, but unlike the other cycling branding operations, It is not a rehash of an existing product “sole” luxury finishes, but it is a product specially designed with development criteria aimed at the realization of an object by the strong characteristics of comfort and ease of use.
So the “Spring Summer” It is a simple and lightweight bicycle, but practice because it has an integrated gear hub that can also be used in bicycle stops, then with a changed extremely practical and simple.
The wheels instead are oriented to the formal characterization of the bike and then they Circles 144 chromates radial spokes, a strong note of elegance that characterizes the whole bicycle. The rest is intentionally understated so as not to create an object too flashy, but elegant in its interior, in her feminine essence.
