Aldo Drudi’s Burasca 1200 Concept based on Honda VFR1200F

Design guru Aldo Drudi- the man responsible for designing all of Valentino Rossi’s helmet designs has created a concept motorcycle based on the Honda’s VFR1200F. Dubbed the Burasca 1200, the bike is far away from Honda’s conservative offerings.

The name Burasca means ‘storm’, and it’s taken the new Drudi team 15 months to realise the bike from the first idea and sketches through to this fully-finished concept bike. Created in the team’s ‘Air Garage’, it’s Drudi’s modern interpretation of a sports-tourer.
