Krazy Horse launches ‘new ride’ to coincide with TT

Suffolk-based custom motorcycle specialist Krazy Horse is celebrating its appointment as a UK dealer for Italian-based Paton Motorcycles with a free open evening (6pm-10pm) on 5 June. The evening will feature a tribute to the Isle of Man TT, in which a Paton machine will compete on 6 June.

The legendary Italian race firm has entered the Lightweight TT with a Kawasaki 650-powered twin – Paton S1 Strada – ridden by 26-year-old British rider Olie Linsdell.  A street-legal version of the bike – as unveiled at the Milan Show last year – is to be available from the Bury St Edmunds destination venue from this month.

 ‘The Paton S1 Strada is a classic street racer,’ says Krazy Horse owner Paul Beamish.

‘It’s a mix of classic Italian styling with mainstream manufacturing – and it’s feisty. There’s a lot of anticipation about the launch of this top performing but easy to maintain bike brand.  The Paton S1 Strada has a unique, 60s-look and feel and we are expecting it to grab the attention of motorcycle enthusiasts and collectors throughout the UK.  It is an iconic racing bike that will be making its debut on our roads very soon.’

The bikes are available in four levels of specification ranging from the ‘standard’ to the top of the range Limited Edition ‘First Factory Signature’.  Prices range from £16,574 to £23,574 (including VAT, delivery and registration).

Paton was founded in the late 1950s after Italy’s famous FB Mondial pulled out of Grand Prix racing.  It was set up by Giuseppe Pattoni, chief mechanic of FB Mondial GP team, and designer, Lino Tonti. They built only ten top quality race bikes during the 1960s but these bikes raced over 150 times.  Later on, the pair switched to building replicas of their race bikes for private competitors riding in ‘classic’ races.
