The Magical Modular Design of the Boxer SSR

Posted in Motorcycle, Sportbikes by Chris | August 6th, 2009 | 2 Responses |


An obscure French motorcycle company named Boxer Design has this handy little model called the Boxer SSR. You may have noticed that there are two bikes in the picture above. That’s because–they are actually the same bike! (Collective gasp!) Thanks to a clever modular design technique, motorcyclists who were once confounded by having to choose between a super sexy full-fairing sportbike and a leaner, meaner naked urbanite have a viable solution in the Boxer SSR. A simple (but possibly complicated) parts-swap will have you ready to surprise all your buddies at an actual parts-swap meet.

Released in 2005, the Boxer is powered by a 997cc V-Twin mill found in previous Boxer models, and makes use of quality components typical of low production models, like Ohlins suspension, Brembo brakes, and Marchesini wheels. No word yet on pricing for the SSR, nor how many bikes have actually been produced.

    A Boxer has a V-Twin engine? So I guess to even things out somebody needs to make a bike called the V-Two and give it a horizontally opposed engine?

    Cool idea, but if this is a limited production bike how many people are you gonna find at your local swap meet with parts for it.
