We have written about Japan’s AC Sanctuary before. For several years now, it has created some of the most beautiful, highly modified Japanese standards (principally, Kawasakis). It now has a following that reaches through Europe and offers a line of “RCM” models, standing for Real Complete Machine, which are similar to production models.
Pictured here is a highly modified Japan-market Kawasaki ZRX1200 DAEG, which starts life as a very competent machine, but reaches an entirely new level after Sanctuary’s mods.
Among other changes, Sanctuary adds a gorgeous titanium exhaust that is custom fabricated for the DAEG by Nitro Racing. An Ohlins FG42 fork graces the front end, with individual Ohlins shocks out back.
The wheels are OZ forged units suitable for high level roadracing, and extremely light. You can see the beautiful Brembo brakes and the extremely stout custom swingarm in the photos below.
Apparently these bikes sell quite well to discriminating (and wealthy) customers, both inside and outside Japan. We would like to ride one! This is one example of an RCM by Sanctuary, so visit their web site if you would like to see more.
