Are the Foggy Petronas road bikes worth £70k?
Ten examples of the fabled 90s racer have come up for sale with Lanzante
It may never have reached its full potential in World Superbike racing, but those of us in our thirties hold the Petronas FP-1 in a special place in our hearts.
We've written about the saga of the road bikes in the past, and now classic car restorers Lanzante have taken ten of the mothballed road bikes and put the hard work in to get them road legal and running nicely. The guys at 44Teeth were lucky enough to ride two of the road bikes, priced at £70,000.
Even though a modern 600cc bike would wipe the floor with the older tech in the Petronas road bike, the rarity and collectability will surely see all ten sold in no time.
