Ecosse Night Stalker
Ecosse Moto Works have created the Night Stalker, a one-off motorcycle that plays every card in the fabricator’s deck.
The motorcycle was inspired by Ecosse founder Don Atchison’s friendship with a former member of the US Army’s 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment, known as the Night Stalkers, which provides helicopter support for covert night-time missions. The bike makes a bold visual statement with its stealth design, high technology, and military-spec build quality.
The chassis, made of lightweight, super-high-strength titanium, a notoriously difficult material finished with a subtle sheen that complements axles, fasteners, and ceramic-coated exhaust headers of the same metal.
The hand-built engine is a 45-degree V-twin based on the venerable Harley-Davidson principle that there is no substitute for cubic inches. This one is huge: a balanced and blueprinted 2.1-litre - built by Jim Jones of Traco Racing Engines.
Unique to the Night Stalker is its matching Airborne Tactical Solutions moto-adapted helmet. Originally designed for aircraft pilots, the helmet’s carbon-fibre and Kevlar shell provide superior comfort and safety.
The unique Ecosse package comes in at AU$305,708, with a portion of the price going to the Night Stalker Foundation, a non-profit organisation for veterans and their families.
