" This Limited Edition (of one) cat 1Uber-bike by artist Byron Hemmes. It is a 1200cc Motorcycle. A big cat Motocycle. Powered by 1200cc Buell 97 S3 Thunderbolt engine, body made from high-grade stainless steel. It price at £320,000 (about $567,000)." See from bookofjoe.com.
I searched more info and high definition photos about this project. This bike named the Jaguar Concept Motorcycle from Massow Concept Cycles.
"Massow Concept Cycles - When first given the opportunity to view Barend Massow Hemmes' concept chopper folio nothing could prepare you for the impact of his collection. Using high end car trade marks and logos, Hemmes has developed these pioneering concept motorcyles making use of cutting edge engineering and materials technology. The jaguar 'leaper' cat logo became the first from his limited range to be built into a real machine. Engineered in high-grade stainless steel the bike flaunts a jaguar cat fairing on which the rider sits. This has been finished with ultra high gloss ebony lacquer. Hemmes is currently in talks with Jaguar to determine how they intend using it as radical new brand-awareness tool."
