Greece’s first custom-made and on-demand motorcycle has come off the production line and made its first appearance to an international audience in Milan.
The DCR 017 was showcased at the EICMA exhibition in Milan and its creator claims it boasts the best of everything.
“We are not afraid because we are competitive at the highest level, our technology is exceptional, and everyone acknowledges it,” said the creator of the DCR 017 motorcycle Dinos Michalidis to Greek media.
DCR 017 appeals to a new and flourish market of buyers who want custom built bikes and it is something that its creator noticed over a year ago.
“In 2016, when we witnessed this wave of Custom, Trackers and Cafe Racers motorcycles, we said we should do something ourselves. Despite the fact we are a company that manufactures air filtres, we set aside some time at our research centre and tried to build our own motorcycle,” Nikolaidis explained.
The motorcycle was completed just a few days before the opening of the exhibition on November 9.
“It is something we can only compare with a Ferrari or Lamborghini in the car sector; it is obviously a very expensive market, but we have a plan,” Nikolaidis said.
“If conditions permit, meaning if we have a sufficient number of orders, then we plan to set up a special unit to produce this motorcycle,” he added.
