2011 CR&S Duu to be unveiled at the 2009 EICMA

The new CR&S Duu will go on sale in Europe in 2011...

CR&S have released the first official pics of their new ‘naked, twin seater, premium motorcycle,’ the Duu. ‘Two Western motorcycle cultures will be synthesized inside the Duu – a sporty European rolling chassis powered by a muscular American big-twin,’ claim CR&S on their website.

The Duu will be fitted with a 1,916cc S&S X-Wedge v-twin. However, no power output figures are quoted and there’s no information regarding the bike’s weight either. CR&S expect to start selling the Duu in Europe by 2011, with prices starting at 20,000 euros (US$29,500). Only a few dozen of these hand-built bikes will be made every year.

The single-side swingarm looks impressive, though overall the Duu looks like a Harley-designed Ducati Streetfighter with some musclebike design cues from the Yamaha VMax. You decide if that’s a good thing. In the meanwhile, the bike will be on display at the EICMA show in Milan this year.

Thats looks really tasty. Most impressed!
A lot of new bike manufacturers coming in the market have got it completely wrong, these guys have produced something that will turn heads for the right reasons.

The more I look at the lines the less I like it, the rear subframe is horrible and the strange running lights seem to be a ugly after thought. The wheels and the X-Wedge are the only decently aesthetic things on it. On a different note, I love the look of the new sight, very sharp.
