Alexs Bol D'Or | Walt Siegl Motorcycles

Walt Siegl has been protagonists of our attentions many times (here old articles), his motorbikes always combine great elegance and functionality, where weight reduction is a sought-after aesthetic sleep its hallmark.

This MV, with its 3-cylinder engine and the truss frame, is the basis that has chosen to create a small series of very special motorcycles. Each item is different from the other and destined for a customer who wants a motorcycle that is unique in the world.

Like other prefartors, he has decided to name each bike in a different way, there are those who give the name of the city where it will end up and who the name of the new owner, as in the case of this Alexs Bol D'or.

“In my experience, saving weight wherever you can always results in a better performing motorcycle. The weight reduction program for the Bol d’Or starts with the use of high tech composite to replace the plastic OEM bodywork. Using a specially formulated epoxy Kevlar matrix for the newly styled 20 liter gas tank reduces the weight significantly to 3.5 lb. All the bodywork combined (including fairing stay) weighs only 8.5 lb. Additional weight reduction is achieved by our aluminum subframe, the lightweight high performing exhaust system, and our WSM rear sets machined from 7075-T651 aerospace grade aluminum."

"A ram air system was created to get the best out of the highly tuned 3-cylinder engine. The diameter of the air intakes was increased and they were tucked into the front of the fairing. To get the most out of these modifications and to gain better torque and horsepower, the ECU is flashed with a fully tunable performance program."

"The experience of riding such a lightweight motorcycle with its razor sharp handling and the engine performance of the legendary MV Agusta technology, engulfed by a sound similar to that of a Formula One car is difficult to put into words. It needs to be experienced.”     — Walt Siegl
