The Hyper Fighters belong to the modern street fighter class of motorcycles, essentially stripped back superbikes designed for high performance and excellent handling, typically without aerodynamic fairings.
The Hyper Fighter family consists of two models, the aforementioned Apagón and Horizonte. The Apagón is a blacked out track-inspired motorcycle that was built as the introductory concept model. The Horizonte is built with an abundance of lightweight materials, prioritizing the power to weight ratio above almost all else.
When ordering your bike you can choose between the supercharged version that uses the engine from the Kawasaki ZH2 producing 210 bhp, or the naturally aspirated version that uses the engine from the Kawasaki Z900 producing 125 bhp.
Each bike is fitted with a full stainless steel exhaust system with custom made silencers, 3D printed intake filtration systems, 3D printed body panels and inserts, and custom frame assemblies developed as per client specifications.
They also have custom suede seats with signature Hyper Fighter stitch pattern, LED lighting, the option to choose either the Droog low rise bar or the Droog drag bar, and custom solid vented wheels.
The fuel tank is CNC cut and laser welded, the bikes use oversized wave rotors and braided brake lines, a CNC cut radiator guard, CNC cut exhaust shields, and billet fuel tank caps and rearsets.
