Press release Chassis Factory – British Superbike season 2019
Jamie Perrin in 2019 to compete in the BSB GP2 class on a Chassis Factory frame
We proudly announce that British rider Jamie Perrin will compete in 2019 on a Chassis Factory “Chrome Light” frame kit fitted with a Yamaha R6 engine in the BSB-GP2 prototype class. This project is supported by the gear box specialists of Nova racing transmissions and Yamaha tuner and setup expert Mark Sadler of Go development. It promises to be an interesting collaboration with a clear goal: Winning! In the 2018 season Perrin has already shown his potential with several podium finishes in the competitive BSB Supersport class. Chassis Factory will provide Jamie Perrins’ team with a competitive “Chrome Light” frame kit.
Chassis Factory “Chrome Light” frame-kit
The “Chrome Light” kit is a development of the 2018 frame kit “Chrome”. A total package consisting of a lightweight aluminum tubular frame and various high-quality aluminum milling parts, special adjustable triple clamps, a special Chassis Factory link system and lightweight swing arm, a handmade aluminum fuel tank, K-Tech rear suspension, Toby steering damper and clip-ons.
The main challenge in the development of the new “Chrome Light” kit was weight reduction compared to the standard stock frame. The weight of the frame is reduced by as much as 20% and with the swing arm, developed by Chassis Factory, even a 35% weight advantage is achievable compared to the standard
Chassis Factory Chrome frame
Chassis Factory swingarm and link system
The linear link system offers a wide range of setup possibilities in combination with the adjustable pivot of the swingarm in the frame and the K-Tech DDS Pro rear shock. The weight reduction also changes the weight distribution of the motorcycle compared to the stock one. Due to the handmade
aluminium Chassis Factory fuel tank, the center of gravity is lower and we can influence the weight distribution. In addition, the tank is also narrower for less air resistance. The adjustable yoke set offers an agile setup for the shorter circuits and a stable basis for the faster ones.
“Chrome Light” for all Supersport types
Just like the 2018 “Chrome” kit, the “Chrome Light” kit still makes it possible to fit all types of Supersport or Superstock engines. If required, Chassis Factory can, in consultation with the team, also supply a rolling chassis. We have the possibility to equip the frame kit with K-Tech suspension and OZ wheels.
Temporary offer for the 2019 season
The standard offering for the frame kit is €18.250,00 ex VAT. However, for orders placed before November 16th 2018 a special price of €17.500,00 ex VAT is offered.
The “Chrome Light” frame kit consist of the following parts:
- Main frame
- Triple clamps
- Link system
- K-Tech DDS Pro rear shock
- Fuel tank
- Steering damper
