2011 Mansory Zapico - Click above for high-res image gallery

You may know Mansory more for doing terrible things to supercars like the Bugatti Veyron than for motorcycles, but it turns out their gold plating and leather cladding skills know no bounds. To keep things interesting, Mansory has just rolled out a bespoke motorcycle developed with customizer Thomas M. George, and it actually looks pretty good.

The Mansory Zapico has been swathed generously in carbon fiber, as any custom anything must be these days. From the bug shield to the gas tank to the exhaust silencers, no surface has been left untouched. According to the company, the carbon pieces and the wheels of the bike are all hand built in Mansory's factory in Bavaria.

While the Zapico plays up the carbon fiber rather than the company's normal trademark leather work, the seat, while thin, is a one-off leather concoction.

As with any self-respecting chopper, the 124 c.i. V-twin mill comes from famed American engine builder S&S packing 160 horsepower. That's enough grunt to get the big bike to 60 in 3.3 seconds, despite its 750-pound heft. Check it out in our high-res gallery below and read more about it in the press release after the jump.
