In memory of Brazilian Formula 1 legend Ayrton Senna, killed during racing twenty years ago in Monza on May 1, 1994, Marcus Walz & WalzWerk-Racing are releasing a special Senna Tribute Bike in a limited edition to no more than three hand-crafted bikes, according to Ayrton Sennas 3 world championship titels.

 

The Senna Tribute Bikes will be based on early Moto Guzzi s from the Le Mans series, which will be completely rebuilt from the ground up to classic and timeless café racers. The high-end yellow paint job is inspired by Senna's famous helmet design. The 850cc engine has been expanded to almost 1100cc and now delivers a good 100hp, while the vehicle's weight has been slimmed down to approx. 170kg. The bike has numerous components especially custom built for this project. The customer can order the bike as a street legal version with TÜV certification or as a pure racing machine, for use at historic racing events, for example.

 

Each single machine is equipped with a high-quality numbered plaque that is embedded in the upper fork bridge. Also, each bike is delivered with a decorative Certificate of Authenticity.

 

The first Senna Tribute Bike will be presented on May 1, 2014 at the WalzWerk-Café (www.walzwerk-cafe.com) during a special organized event.

 

 

Marcus Walz has become a familiar face in the Formula 1 pitlane. He has already built bikes for the likes of Sebastian Vettel, Kimi Räikkönen, David Coulthardt and Gerhard Berger. Walz has also crafted many other tribute bikes in the past, including bikes in honor of Ronnie Peterson (John Player Special Bike), Didier Pironi (Ligier Gitanes Bikes), Rolf Stommelen (Martini Bike), Steve McQueen (Gulf Le Mans Bike ) and James Dean (Little Bastard Bike), just to name a few.
