Elf Honda Ron Haslam replica Moto2 track day bike announced
British Moto2 chassis builder FTR Moto are selling 10 complete Moto2 bikes painted like Ron Haslam’s 1980’s Elf Honda Moto2 bike to wealthy track day riders, it has been announced.
FTR will sell all ten bikes fitted with a Chris Mehew-tuned, World Supersport-specification Honda CBR600RR engine (the same man who tuned WSS runner-up Eugene Laverty’s bike as well as working on Haslam’s original Elf GP bikes).
The bikes will have an identical chassis to the FTR M210 bike due to be campaigned by Alex Debon in the new Moto2 championship this year, with OZ wheels, Brembo brakes and GP-level suspension included as standard.
The well-heeled buyers get three trackdays with setup and riding tuition from Haslam included, as well as a Haslam replica Arai Quantum helmet and custom Spidi leathers with matching boots and gloves.
A collection of unspecified 1980’s Haslam/Elf mementoes are also included.
“The feedback from our M209 development Moto2 machine has been incredible and so many people have enquired about a track day version of the machine,” said FTR director Steve Bones.
“We considered a range of options and, as Ron Haslam was synonymous with Elf Honda and the Elf project, we thought it appropriate to recognise and appreciate a golden era of 500cc GP racing.”
Price, availability dates and pictures of a finished replica are yet to be revealed.
