ECOSSE Moto Works built a custom all-titanium series motorcycle with a custom BRM timepiece for the Robb Report, a magazine about luxury which features big ticket items. The BRM timepiece on this unique motorcycle series is an automatic chronograph with a brushed titanium bezel and a 48mm hexagonal face that reveals the watch's mechanics.

Only ten of the $275,000 ultimate street bikes will be available for purchase and all ten will be equipped with an over-sized K&N XStream Top High-Flow Air Filter (RX-4130-1). Besides the titanium chassis, BST carbon fiber wheels, Ohlins gas forks and TTX shock, there is a 2150cc supercharged, inter-cooled electronic fuel injected powerplant engine.

“Everything on this ECOSSE Titanium Series motorcycle has best of class components,” said Wendy Atchinson co-founder of ECOSSE Moto Works. “K&N, in our opinion, is the best.”

It took 11 months to create the first one. “It is very difficult to get titanium and to work with it,” said Atchinson. “Fortunately, we have very skilled welders who are able to purge the oxygen while working with titanium. Everything was done by hand.”

Donald Atchinson is the mechanical engineer and co-founder of ECOSSE Moto Works. “He designs all the motorcycles and I handle the business side,” said Wendy Atchinson. “The titanium bike was his vision and its power to weight ratio is phenomenal. It gets more than 200 horsepower at the rear wheel and more than 210 ft. lbs. of torque. It weighs in at 440 pounds.”

Every motorcycle in the series of ten will have “Titanium Series RR Limited Edition” and the serial number engraved on the handlebar clamp and VIN plate.

The boutique French watchmaker, BRM has incorporated the lines of the ECOSSE into a matching timepiece and both the bike and watch share the same color scheme. The watches will also be engraved with the same serial number as its motorcycle.
