Named after the Italian biker film from the 1960s, “Il Sorpasso” is one of the latest custom built motorcycles by the Roman workshop Emporio Elaborazioni Meccaniche (EEM). Reworking a Moto Guzzi V11, EEM stripped the weighty bike so that it looks like the racer it is at its core. They installed components such as Ducati 998 forks and brakes, Showa internals, a Suzuki tank, a 1950s Falcone Sport headlight, and a vintage, handmade Moto Guzzi seat. Together, these new elements revamp the motorbike in a metallic palette of white, gray, black, and red.
