• DCR-018 The Billet Sting

    One bite will change you forever...

    It was back in the eighties when the young mechanic Dino conceived, designed and manufactured a ‘Monocoque Aluminum’ frame 80cc two stroke race bike. The bike was raced successfully for 3 years finishing each race on the podium!

  • DCR-018 , The style

    Mario grew up playing with the Monocoque 80cc racer, inspired by the ‘strange’ but awesome frame design, came up with the idea, to design and build a modern racer inspired by the almost 30 years old design! Crazy idea….

  • The "Forced Air Intake"

    Key component of the bike’s design is the forced air intake. The intake is designed in such a way to serve as 2 hexagonal tubes, that channel the high-speed moving air to the DNA Filters, and at the same time acts as a structural part that supports the fairing windshield and double front LED lights.

  • A Boxer Racer like nothing before !

    A Greek Motorcycle designed and built based on a radical prototype racer that brought awe and wonder back in the eighties.

    A truly unique machine, an engineer's best dream and worst nightmare all in the same time, brought in life by a dynamic duo, father and son, working together, creting a jewelry on two weels.

  • DCR-018 , The Engine

    The BMW R9T 1200 Boxer engine that powers our ‘Billet Sting’ is the latest air/oil cooled engine BMW produces.

The Nick Name

Our Dream Bike, the DCR-018 has a nick name that you already have seen in the title of the press release. The Honeycomb design, the billet aluminum that dominates, and the aggressive style of this unique and ‘nasty’ fast Boxer racer, is what inspired us to come up with “The Billet Sting” nickname and the awesome Wasp Logo!
