FTR launches Haslam tribute Moto2

Fancy a full-on Moto2 bike, complete with set-up and riding instruction from Ron Haslam? Then sign right here

FTR MOTO is producing a limited edition of 10 Moto2 Grand Prix machines with a full World Supersport specification Honda CBR600RR motor, in the colours of Ron Haslam’s 500cc Grand Prix Elf Honda.

The FTR Elf project is being launched to celebrate FTR Moto’s inaugural year in World Championship competition with its M210 Moto2 GP machine.

The machine will use a Honda World Supersport specification motor - prepared by Chris Mehew who worked alongside Haslam with the Elf project in the 1986-88 World Championship years. Mehew also prepares the engines for World Supersport Championship star Eugene Laverty.

The rolling chassis will be FTR’s 2010 World Championship M210, featuring the latest Brembo brakes, OZ MotoGP wheels, GP specification front and rear suspension and Dunlop racing slick tyres.

Each recipient will enjoy three track days, tuition and set-up assistance with Grand Prix favourite Haslam and will also receive a Spidi bespoke replica Haslam/Elf Honda GP Kangaroo Pro leather suit plus boots and gloves from Spidi and a Ron Haslam replica of the latest Arai Quantum helmet.

The machines will be prepared at FTR Moto’s Buckingham base and will be presented to the 10 customers at a formal presentation evening, dinner and celebration with Ron Haslam.

“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.”
 
The machine will be available within eight to 10 weeks.

The price and further details are available from Steve or Mark at FTR Moto on: 01280 815800.
