Formula One car drivers, chances are they will be enthusiasts of the motorcycle too. Well known names like Louis Hamilton, Mark Webber and even Michael Schumacher have had a profound love for motorcyles. Speaking of F1 legends, Ayrton Senna too was passionate for motorcycles. He was often seen riding around on his Ducati. Hence, the Italian motorcycle manufacturer released a limited edition 916 in 1996 in his honour.
German Builder and motorcycle racer Marcus Walz has created his own version of a limited edition motorcycle that pays tribute to the racing legend. Walz has built motorcycles for some of the current Formula 1 racers like Sebastian Vettel, Kimi Raikkonen, David Coulthard and Gerhard Berger.
Three of these motorcycles have been built based on the 1970s Moto Guzzi Mark I Le Mans series. They are all unique and have been made from ground up with body work finishes based on Senna's helmet design.
The original 850cc V-Twin on the Moto Guzzi has been bored up to displace 1040cc, and the power has been increased to 90 bhp. The weight of the motorcycle stands at 175 kg. Also read: Remembering Ayrton Senna on his birthday, what made him a legend and the unfortunate accident that took him away
While the original Moto Guzzi Le Mans was in itself quite a capable handler, Walz has upgraded the suspensions with new fork tubes, internals and progressive springs.
