El Toro by Battistinis

Miami, San Tropez, Dubai, L.A, Bournemouth!

Whatever destination in the world you may be on when your on a bike like ‘Battistinis El Toro’ you know your gonna have a great time and this bike will be the focal point of attention. ‘El Toro’ is one of the latest beauties to blast from the Battistinis Workshop and this thing kicks butt, if we don’t mind saying it ourselves! Out on the road or sitting back with a margarita viewing this beauty, it ticks all the boxes in everyway, shape and form!

Based on a Battistinis 250 rear tyre softail chopper frame the bike handles like a dream, but surpasses dreams as its reality! A black metal flake subtly highlighted with 50’s style hot rod pin striping shows the roots of the build alongside an elegant palladium silver leaf highlighting the fluid lines of the gas tank.

El Toro is a gathering of some of the best possible custom parts you can lay your hands on from around the globe. The quote ‘a sum of more than its parts’ has never been so apparent!

The front end of this bike is a massive talking point and a huge pair of the awesome American Suspension springer forks make it no wonder why! These are unrivalled in the custom industry and strike a serious force to the front of this class ride.

Battistinis original three spoke wheels front and rear further bring prominent to the build yesteryear styling from the 50’s hot rodding era. The Battistinis billet c-thru pegs and grips compliment this ethos of aesthetics of attention to detail. These Battistinis parts are manufactured under the strictest standards on the West Coast of America and finished in show winning chrome plating to really make them the real deal!

A show polished billet 100” Ness/Patrick racing engine, the best in the industry in our eyes is married up to a 6 speed Baker gearbox ensures that this beauty gives one smooth powerful ride from start to finish. The engine is not manufactured from any mystery materials but CNC machined from solid billets of 6061 aluminium to make it one of the most desired and sort after engines in the world.

As with all Battistini bikes ‘El Toro’ is built to ride, its built for the good times and its built to be one of the best! It’s at home as much out on the highway straights or lost down county lanes!

El Toro’ currently is a resident on the Bournemouth Riviera in the Battistini showroom. So if you like things that ooze class, don’t want to painfully wait to ride off into the sunset get down to Battistinis NOW and make El Toro yours!

“C’mon let the good times roll!”
