1500cc Proton Stingray Motorbike Concept

The Proton motorcycle concept: introducing the Proton Stingray. Built by Proton as a concept showcase, the concept took 2 months (PS: This was sometime back in 2008!). The motorbike uses a 1500cc 4 cylinder, 12 valve carburetted Mitsubishi engine found in the 1.3L Proton Wira and Proton Saga. The bike is styled towards a cruiser; at 1300kg, it should be! Top speed is 200km/h. 

The front suspension and brake system is a custom telescopic shocks derived from the Kawasaki Vulcan 800,  while the rear uses a Proton GEN2 brake system. Pretty cool :)

More pictures ahead!
