CR&S, a Milan-based Italian Motorcycle company was established in 1992 by Roberto Crepaldi. The acronym stands for Café racers and Superbikes. Crepaldi opened a shop in Milan with the intention of building the 60s and 70s motorbikes.
The following year, Roberto Crepaldi joined John Britten to collaborate on a bike project and the result was the first CR&S motorcycle. Born in 1950, Britten loved engines from a young age and also loved to build go-carts. When he was thirteen, he showcased his skills when he successfully restored an Indian scout motorcycle. Once he finished school, he traveled through Europe then returned to New Zealand to start his venture of designing glass and lighting.
Britten designed his first motorcycle in 1985. He called it AERO D-ZERO and it featured a Ducati engine. It hit 234 kph on the track in 1987 and in ’88 and ‘90, it won some speed trials reaching speeds of 242 and 247 kph respectively. He set up the Britten motorcycle company in 1992 after working on a motorcycle design for almost two years. The CR&S and Britten collaboration gave birth to the CR7S Britten V1000 which had a number of successes in global, motorcycle competitions.
In 1995, John Britten died and CR&S made the decision to quit competitive racing. Crepaldi decided to develop a single-cylinder road bike in collaboration with Raceco. In 1998, with so many racing victories to look back on, CR&S decided to look into the possibility of creating a Britten single-cylinder project. The project was to be studied first and then when it was ready, the machine would be manufactured.
In 2004, CR&S invited Roberto Pattoni to become a partner and technical director and in September, the CR&S Vun was launched. The new motorcycle was displayed in the Ducati Speed Week in Hungary. Also in 2004, some units of the CR&S Vun were shipped off to countries such as Italy, Germany and the United States of America. A racing version of the motorcycle was also created and seven of these were presented at the Milan Show which was held at the end of the year.
