The Kharkiv-based ICM company calls it a landmark project; the motorcycle will be based on a 1953 Izh-49 with a pre-1955 engine under 350 cc. The upgraded motorcycle will boast 3.5 times as much power (max. 40 hp), weigh one-third less (max. 110 kg) and capable of achieving 160 km/h. The current speed record for this class of motorcycles is 86 mph (about 140 km/h).
“Inspirium is a medium of inspiration, and it is inspiration that has informed our project from the word go. The mask is an artwork, harking back to the racers of the 1930s. Bob Basset have perfectly grasped the project’s essence, which is a dream of speeds!” says ICM CEO Yaroslav Iron of the collaboration.
The first collaboration between Bob Basset and ICM—a helmet mask for the Sturmvögel outfit—has won the Kharkiv motorcycle company numerous awards at European and worldwide custom motorcycle contests.
