Rob Brady remembers – “How can this be?”
When ROBRADY designed, built and launched the Vectrix Superbike concept it opened to a crowd of cheers and rave reviews in Milan. Ducati’s lead designer at the time, Pierre Terblanche, told me that “the best new motorcycle design in the show belongs to an electric scooter company – how can this be ???” I enjoyed several conversations in Milan with Pierre and motorcycle writer extraordinaire, Alan Cathcart, that week.
Alan and I met up in Atlanta after Milan where he interviewed me about the design and building of the Superbike. I noted that it would not have been possible without ROBRADY designer Erik Holmen – together we put the heart and sole into the design. Our story became a chapter in American Dream Bikes and remains a treasure of mine to this day.
