In full race trim, this bike weighs only 140kgs and has 132bhp. That’s very little and an awful lot. The weight loss is chiefly down to a full titanium frame and racing exhaust and BST carbon wheels. The race-spec engine helps too, contributing 11.5kgs to the lost weight and 42 extra horsepower. The bike, complete with race kit, including the 1200cc engine, comes in at a hefty $66,500, but should easily make the Leggera the fastest supermoto on earth. De rigueur Brembo radials and Ohlins upside downs are, as ever, present.
For this kind of money we’re sure NCR would be happy to paint it the color of your choosing, which is a good thing. We can’t help but feel the Hypermotard’s elegant minimalism is lost in NCR’s racing livery.
