Apex Predator was developed from a Sportster XR1200 by Oscar and his team made up of Agustin Anguino, Luis Fernando Perea, Rodrigo Perez, Eduardo Trejo and Yeyo.
The bike uses a hand-built 2-1-2 exhaust that routes under the seat and out through a one-off custom tail unit. And to improve the bike’s sporting potential, Showa Big Piston Forks and wavy brake discs were added at the front.
The headlight is borrowed from a Harley-Davidson Breakout but all the hand and foot controls and Alcantara seat are custom made. The whole machine has a sterling green powder coat finish with accents of yellow including the calipers, seat and rear twinshock springs.
The competition runner up was a Roadster-based machine called Gryps, created by Harley-Davidson Athens, Greece.
A special mention was also given to Thunderbike, the entry from Harley-Davidson Niederrhein, Germany, which was the pick of the H-D styling team.
