Knievel Motorcycles Uses Pegasus Fuel Injection to Pass Euro 3

knievel-logo

Knievel Motorcycles, building on the legacy of the most famous name in motorcycles, has announced the release of its new  bobbers and choppers with Euro 3 emissions certification and TUV approval.  Key to their meeting the tough Euro 3 requirements was the use of the Pegasus electronic fuel injection system on their new offerings.  We worked with Knievel over many months to get their bike approved and they now plan to expand their sales into the growing market for VTwin bikes in Europe and Asia.

What EFI Can Do for OEM Builders

We are always looking for agreements to provide our Pegasus fuel injection system to OEM motorcycle builders.  The definition of OEM is a little fluid, but we typically think of them as companies making 100 or more bikes a year, usually as “production customs” that can be produced with a number of options, from engine type to handle bars and forward controls.

Besides giving the OEM a fuel management option beyond carburetion, we also offer  the ability to work with them on their engine and exhaust system  of choice in order to get them Euro 3 compliant.  The advantage here is clear: bike makers are now able to sell in markets in Europe and Asia that were closed to them before.

We sell the only bolt-on EFI system on the market that can do this and we have done it twice.  We have proprietary software and hardware that makes this possible and 2 years of experience in dealing with Euro 3 and TUV regulations.  Our clients have TUV certifications, and. almost as important, the bikes still have the power and response that VTwin riders expect.

For more information please go to the page on our web site that we have set up for OEM’s :

EFI for OEM

We are always looking for agreements to provide our Pegasus fuel injection system to OEM motorcycle builders.  The definition of OEM is a little fluid, but we typically think of them as companies making 100 or more bikes a year, usually as “production customs” that can be produced with a number of options, from engine type to handle bars and forward controls.

Besides giving the OEM a fuel management option beyond carburetion, we also offer  the ability to work with them on their engine and exhaust system  of choice in order to get them Euro 3 compliant.  The advantage here is clear: US bike makers are now able to sell in foreign markets in Europe and Asia that were closed to them before.

We sell the only bolt-on EFI system on the market that can do this and we have done it twice.  We have proprietary software and hardware that makes this possible and 2 years of experience in dealing with Euro 3 and TUV regulations.  Our clients have TUV certifications, and. almost as important, the bikes still have the power and response that VTwin riders expect.

So here’s you’re chance to win a beautiful bike with our fuel injection system.  Here’s a first picture and the link to go to to enter the sweepstakes: Sweepstakes Address.

Mil’s New Build

Mil has just finished his latest creation,  a distinctive all-blue motorcycle that he built for his son.  This bike has a 113 cubic inch S&S motor with a 6 speed transmission, Kraft/Ttech (www.krafttechinc.com) single down tube frame, 20 in tire rear and 21 in the front.  The seat is custom from Bob Lepera (www.lepera.com) and the primary drive and GMA brakes (www.gmabrakes.com) come from our friends at BDL.

Of course, he  installed a Pegasus fuel injection system,  so besides dynoing at 113 HP and 124 torque it also gets 49 mpg at 70 mph.

For those who don’t know, Mil Blair is the guy on the other end of the phone when you call with technical questions.  You can see a longer bio for Mil on our web site http://www.performancefi.com/about_us.php, but let’s just say that Mil has built more bikes than most custom builders who do it for a living, and he knows how to get power and performance out of a custom-made Harley.

Mil Blue Bike

Staying with the blue color scheme, even for the throttle body, Mil used one of the tinted throttle bodies we made early in the development of the Pegasus system. (They are not available right now.)  You can also see the unusual choice he’s made for an air cleaner.  Since the bike won’t be ridden in areas with much dust he decided to cover the throttle opening with just a screen to keep out pebbles and other big road junk.

Hardcore Choppers Begins Building a Motorcycle for TAPS Charity

TAPS Banner

Our friends at Hardcore Choppers have asked us to be a part of a chopper they are building for the TAPS organization and we couldn’t be happier to donate one of our Pegasus Electronic Fuel Injection units for a worthy cause like this.  TAPS stands for Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors, and their mission is to provide services of all kinds to the loved ones of military personnel killed during active service.  As they say on their web site:

Caring for the families of the fallen…

TAPS is the 24/7 tragedy assistance resource for ANYONE who has suffered the loss of a military loved one, regardless of the relationship to the deceased or the circumstance of the death.

It is one of the biggest and most important charities in Washington, DC and they will be auctioning off the bike that Hardcore builds for them.  It will also travel on a tour of military bases after its unveiling at the organization’s annual fund raising gala on April 13.  Stay tuned and we will keep  you up-to-date as Hardcore gets the bike put together.
