You all have heard of the sidecar, but have you ever heard and known about The Krauser Domani? Maybe for some of you, the Krauser Domani name sounds weird and not familiar, because actually this unique-shaped sidecar motorcycle was born and existed in the 1990s with its major population in Japan and Europe.

The story itself began with Michael Krauser, a sidecar racer who had worked for the German automotive manufacturer, BMW in the 1950s. When he became a racer under the BMW flag, Michael Krauser can be said a great racer because he recorded several times winning the German national championship series, namely in 1955, 1956, 1957, and 1958.

After then he accepted the challenge to go further by making motorcycle designs. But The Krauser Domani was not the first motorcycle he made, the first work of his was a BMW R100RS customized motorcycle.

Until someday he made a unique sidecar motorcycle concept design and turned out to make many like it. The Krauser Domani, a motorcycle with a fancy science-fiction design concept, which can be likened as a DeLorean car in the famous film of the 1980s titled 'Back to The Future'.

But it is not only the design that makes The Krauser Domani special, but also the motorcycle which is the basis of the design as well. Because The Krauser Domani is made on the basis of the BMW K1200 motorcycles with power up to 150 horsepower.

The result is The Krauser Domani sidecar motorbike with the 1980s science-fiction movie-like rides appearance that has a 5-speed and can be driven up to a maximum speed of more than 200 kph.

When discussing how The Krauser Domani was made, then we need to see how the chassis of the BMW K1200 was changed. This unique sidecar motorcycle uses a custom steel chassis linked permanently to the sidecar chassis.

For the front section of this motorbike, it has also completely changed, by applying the front suspension system which is placed in the middle because the front tire is supported by the side swing arm. Although seen as a sidecar, The Krauser Domani can also be called a trike or also a three-wheeled car. That's because of the suspension and drivetrain of The Krauser Domani like a car.
In the 1990s, this sidecar motorcycle was estimated to only be produced and sold to no more than 1,000 units, with marketing areas limited in Europe and Japan only. So it's no wonder why these sidecar motorbikes populations are seen dominant in Japan.

Kept spur your adrenaline on the power of the two-wheeled monster and stay alive with true safety riding. May God will forgive Your sins and so does the cops...... *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | RIDEAPART | MOTORIDERSUNIVERSE | WIKIPEDIA]
