Click above for more shots of the 1995 Ferrari motorcycle

Ferrari doesn't make motorcycles. At least, not officially... but that fact hasn't stopped a number of custom cycle makers from taking matters into their own hands. Perhaps the most famous Maranello-inspired two-wheeler was made by Arlen Ness, but that one's not all that practical in conception. We would imagine a Ferrari motorcycle to be a truly sporting machine, equally as comfortable on the race track as the street, or, more realistically, being shown off in one's garage. Ferrari seems to agree, as the only cycle ever created that bears an official Ferrari chassis number -- SF-01M -- has true sporting pretensions.

Built by David Kay Engineering and completed in 1995, this one-and-only Ferrari motorcycle sports a DOHC engine displacing 900cc and putting out 105 horsepower at 8,800rpm. The only styling choice we take exception with are the Testarossa-style strakes on either side, but nothing's perfect, right? So, what's the only officially official Ferrari bike worth? We'll find out for sure when the auction ends on the 20th, but the expected price is between 325,000-375,000 Swiss francs, or around $300K in U.S. dollars.

      Ugliest. Bike. Ever.

      1995 isn't exactly the model year for brilliant bike design... however, even by those standards, this atrocity is still fugly.

      It looks like a old BMW bike with weber carbs and some body work.

      Yeah I call BS on this thing being remotely a Ferrari but I think those swoopy exhaust pipes are pretty sweet.

      This bike is a MV Agusta Magni with a Suzuki GSX-R headligth assembly and fairing, modern front end and wheels with an "straightened out" MV Agusta exhaust, by the way famous in their original form for their beautiful and sexy curves. It's basically a frankenstein bike and a long shot from being an original. Can't really understand why an artist like Ness would need to stich up such an unoriginal concept .

      looks like they changed the rear faring on an old Ducati

      its painted red and black with a few Ferrari badges on it, so they think they can make a profit of 295,000 dollars?
        • 6 Years Ago
        Agreed, unless I'm missing something what makes this thing AT ALL a Ferrari other than a few stickers?
