Our customer, Daniele approached us with his one-of-a-kind Husqvarna 701 Vitpilen 2019. The exhaust system on his bike is a unique combination, with one half being handcrafted, and the other half sourced from another bike. Since purchasing the bike directly from the OEM, Daniele has made numerous modifications, including several handmade fittings. He personally crafted various carbon fibre components, such as the tank protector, fork guard protector, and front and rear fenders with chain guards. Additionally, the bike features a distinctive clear clutch cover originally from a different bike, which was flawlessly recreated based on Daniele’s instructions by a lathe operator in his home country. He also designed a carbon fibre clutch cover that showcases the red and copper colours. Daniele handcrafted both the carbon fibre air cone filter and the IAT sensor to ensure optimal power and air/fuel mixture in every gear. The suspension kit, tailored to his body specifications was provided by Brook Suspension.

As previously mentioned, the bike’s exhaust system consists of half handmade components and half from another bike, fitting beneath the bike’s underbelly. Recognizing the importance of thermal management for his spirited single-cylinder Vitpilen with 75 horsepower, Daniele turned to Performance 1 Coatings for assistance. Our exhaust ceramic coatings help improve performance and reliability by reducing surface temperatures by up to 15%. Lower temperatures around the cables and water pump contribute to optimal cooling efficiency, further mitigating the risk of the engine overheating. Daniele opted for our Volcanic Titanium coating, which not only enhances aesthetics but also enhances rider comfort, particularly during hot summers or slow-moving traffic.
