Ride the Powerful Custom Harley-Davidson HurakànWednesday 14 February 2018
Ride the Powerful Custom Harley-Davidson Hurakàn ⇒ Today, CovetED brings you the Harley-Davidson Hurakàn, a custom bike transformed into a retro-silhouette café racer which comes from Italy. The incredible bike was the work of FMW Motorcycles, a shop located in Ancona, Italy, on the Adriatic coast. Based on a chassis of the Harley-Davidson Shovel, the motorcycle combines components of the American brand and of MV Agusta and elevates this Harley-Davidson Café racer into a totally new level.
Throughout the world, Harley-Davidson unites people deeply, passionately and authentically. From town to town and country to country, the brand’s ideals of freedom and self-expression transcend cultures, gender and age. Being recognized as an iconic brand is gratifying, but igniting the fire within people on the many roads of the world is what the brand’s all about. Harley-Davidson motorcycle riders come from diverse backgrounds. What all riders have in common regardless of their age, gender or ethnicity, is they are all freedom-loving, adventure-seeking individuals who aspire to the values Harley-Davidson stands for: independence, authenticity and the passion for being on the open road.
In this Hurakàn model, FMW gave an incredible touch of beauty to the final product, as is indeed its prerogative. The name, according to the Italian workshop, conveys the Mayan idea of wind, fire and storm, which is a clear metaphor for what you will find in this two-wheel vehicle. The goal of the bike was to be unique, completely handmade and truly powerful. Mission accomplished.

The Harley-Davidson Hurakàn has a S&S V-Twin Superstock two cylinders motor – whose gross power contrasts with the retro silhouette and emblematic drawing of a purely Italian racer -, custom Bitubo bumper at the rear and a Showa shock absorber “removed” from the MV Agusta F4 front, duly adapted to the weight of this custom bike. The braking system includes stainless steel discs.
The exhaust system in stainless steel contains a 60 mm silencer, also made thinking specifically in this custom template. As for the body, it is essentially in aluminium and with a considerable thickness, with the whole bike containing materials strong enough to withstand the strong engine vibrations. The 5-litre fuel tank, oil filter and the motorcycle tail section are made up of two interior elements that hide all the electrical systems of the bike. It should also be mentioned that this beauty has a Motogadget Motoscope Pro which allows the driver to track its performance.
