There aren’t many motorcycles that can compete with the CR&S DUU when it comes to futuristic designs. This model is by far one of the most interesting production models we’ve seen so far and its tasty style offers a perfect mix of sportiness and aggressively.
At the heart of the CR&S DUU lies a 1916 cc X-Wedge engine which features two pushrod head valves per cylinder with hydraulic self adjustment and three belt driven camshafts (one intake and two exhaust). The engine is linked to a catalyzed stainless steel exhaust system with 2 lambdas. In terms of power the 1916 cc power plant cranks out 71 KW at 5100 rpm and 148 Nm of torque at 4300 rpm.
As far as the transmission is concerned the CR&S DUU is available with either 5 or 6 speeds units supplied by Baker.
The motorcycle is offered in two versions, namely solo and two seats.
The CR&S Vun is a pretty sporty motorcycle especially developed for those who put versatility and comfort on the first place.
The motorcycle is built on a modern tubular frame with cross-sections and diameters which is both stiff and light, assuring a proper handling at high speeds. To optimize the weight, damping of vibration and rigidity, the bike also adopted the interposition of alloy plates for the installation of the engine. Talking about the engine, the CR&S VUN is powered by a Bombardier-Rotax, 652 cc engine which rewards you with 54 Hp (40 KW) at 7.000 rpm and a maximum torque of 6 Kgm (58,9 Nm) at 5.000 rpm. The engine’s power is more than enough to propel the bike to a top speed of over 180 kph (110 mph) with a 0-400 m acceleration of 12.79 seconds.
The motorcycle is offered with a very wide range of options, accessories and graphic designs which permit you to personalize it according to your wishes.

CR&S (Cafe Racing and Sport) is saying Happy Birthday to Italy with the unveiling of the VUN Tricolore. The model will be put on display at the "Esperienza Italia" exhibition in Turin from now until November 20, 2011.
The name VUN comes from the Milanese word for one which is perfect for this single cylinder, single seater sports bike. The tribute to Italy comes in the bike’s Italian tricolore paint job and the "1802-1805" logo - the time span for the First Italian Republic.
"The Italian leadership of today seems blithely out of step with current world events: The Italian premiere fawns over and publicly kisses the hand of Muammar Gaddafi, who upon returning to his kingdom of Libya, begins to brutally repress and murder his people; Japan struggles to prevent a major nuclear disaster, while Italy prepares to hold a referendum on whether to allow the construction of nuclear reactors on Italy’s earthquake-prone territory (the referendum is worded in such a way that if you are against changing the law to allow nuclear reactors you must answer "yes" - ’furbo’)."
