The stripped down Sachs Beast concept motorbike from 2001 is a radical, unusual and extreme concept, which goes back to the basics of motorcycle design for influence, evidently displayed by the fact the minimalist Beast keeps luxurys and fairings to the bare minimum.
The exposed 998 cc Swedish Folen engine was selected for the bike because of its comlicated although pleasant design. However, if the Beast goes into production the limited edition run of 1000 would probably be powered by a more reliable Japanese engine.
The Sachs Beast 1000 motorcycle prototype was shown at Intermoto 2001 and now Milan 2002. Press releases from Sachs indicate that the model might be in production in 2003. It is also said that only 1000 models limited edition will be produced, so interested enthusiasts are encouraged to join the queue in order.
