Associated British Motorcycles unveils bespoke duo at London Show

They will be produced in a limited run, to customer specifications


ASSOCIATED BRITISH MOTORCYCLES has unveiled the hotly-anticipated Gemini Indianapolis and Naked at the Carole Nash London Motorcycle Show today.

The two eye-catching models have been designed and engineered by engine and chassis specialists and ABM’s sister company, T3 Performance.

Featuring exceptional British engineering, high-end components and unique styling, the two models are based on Speed Triple 1050s, giving them 160bhp at the rear wheel and 90 ft-lb of torque.

50 of each will be built to the individual colourways, suspension and component requirements of each customer, and can be provided as complete bespoke motorcycles or based on the customer’s own machine. Every build will be numbered and dated and documented in a hardback book, signed by its engineer.

Both bikes retain the black Speed Triple frame rails, matched with black Dymag Carbon wheels. Suspension is accounted for by race spec billet machined Öhlins Road and Track Forks and a 5-way adjustable rear Maxton shock, while state of the art brakes from British manufacturer HEL Performance and EBC complete the impressive spec. Keyless ignition promises the ultimate ease of use.

The fared Indianapolis boasts a style inspired by US flat trackers, with pulled back bars, an aggressive number board styled front light and Kineo (tubeless) spoked wheel, while the Gemini Naked follows a ‘Café Racer’ theme.

With its unique proposition, ABM hopes to bridge the gap between custom bike builders and mainstream manufacturers, providing genuine individuality, exclusivity and buying experience of a ‘custom’ but with the technical support and aftermarket service above and beyond that of a franchised dealer. And with an impressive racing heritage ongoing GP2 effort within the British Supersport Championship, T3 Racing is well placed to provided excellent technical design.

Tony Scott, founder of Associated British Motorcycles commented: “We have been making custom and one-off bespoke motorcycles under the banner of T3 since 2010, firstly with the acclaimed Ace Thruxton 904S and then our M2-11 GP2 project. Our recent breakaway from long term commitments has now allowed us to re-direct the business over to our long-term ambition of making our own motorcycles.

“The Gemini Twins suit our entry in to the market place perfectly, they are British, they are inspired and they are edgy, creating a great buying opportunity for those looking for something very special, as well as those who are on a more limited budget but would like to add a great, new-look to a motorcycle they already own.”

The two models can be found on the Ace Café stand (CU50) in the Classic and Café Racer Zone at the show.
