Devon to unveil custom Edge sport bike by Shinya Kamura at Quail Lodge

It's not every day that a company like Devon Works comes along. For its first project, Devon gave birth to the GTX, an all-American supercar that took the lap record at Laguna Seca. Unfortunately, the demise of the Dodge Viper on which it's based meant the GTX will never reach production, but though ts focus has changed, Devon has not been deterred. We recently reported on their follow-up in the form of the Tread 1, an innovative belt-driven timepiece. But don't think for even a minute that Devon's given up big gears for little ones entirely. Because hot on the trail of the Tread 1, Devon's graced us with initial details and photos of its next project.
The Devon Edge is a one-of-a-kind custom sport bike, built for the Californian firm by Japanese chopper guru Shinya Kamura. But while Kamura (of Zero Engineering fame) specializes in custom Harleys, the Edge is decidedly sportier, apparently based on a Ducati 999 sportbike engine and chassis with a unique coating of metal bodywork. The Edge will be unveiled this coming weekend at the Quail Lodge Motorcycle Gathering, after which it will be displayed at Devon's flagship store in Beverly Hills with a $200,000 price tag. If you've got no plans to be at either, better take a closer look at the images in the gallery below, because you're not likely to see it down at your local biker bar any time soon.
