The Britten, easily the world’s most creative motorcycle, was built by John Britten and a few friends on a strained budget. This magnificent machine came to life in Britten’s garage in Christchurch, New Zealand in the early 90s. The Britten faced off with the best motorcycles in the world and came out on top breaking and setting four world speed records. It is renowned for its frameless design.

New Zealand is proud of the hand-built Britten V1000 which won the country accolades in races such as the Battle of the Twins in the Daytona International Speedway’s Daytona Bike Week festivities in the United States. The motorbike features characteristics such as the broad use of carbon fiber. The motorcycle’s radiator is positioned under the seat and it also features a double-wishbone suspension. Its chassis is frameless and it comes with engine data logging.

The Britten Motorcycle Company manufactured ten Britten V1000s that can be found as collections as well as in museums to be found in locations around the world.  Britten enthusiasts say that the motorcycle is easy to ride because it has a wide power delivery.  It is as close as you can get to a Grand Prix motorcycle.
