2010 Cosmos 4RWF and 2RWF | V8 Motorcycles

V8 Motorcycle

After working on a number of custom V8-motorcycle projects to help out friends, Amadeu Ferreira Junior decided to use his mechanical engineer background to build a V8 motorcycle for himself. He built two wild looking custom bikes based around a fuel injected 350 cubic inch engine. At the same time he started the Cosmos Muscle Bike Company not far from his home in Brazil.

The more unique of the two custom bike creations utilizes two wheels in the front and two wheels in the rear for a total of four wheels. He calls this latest custom motorcycle design the Cosmos 4RWF while the more traditional two wheel version is called the 2RWF.

Amadeu is proud of creating a custom V8 motorcycle and notes that other bike builders don’t often offer competing engine packages. Amadeu feels that a certain sub-set of motorcyclist (lunatics) desire a radically powered motorcycle. They want something more than your typical big-bore V-twin. So, he decided to build these ZZ4 V8 motorcycles packed with a claimed 350hp.

The custom motorcycles will clearly be made in limited numbers. Future owners are welcomed to visit the Cosmos shop to appraise their motorcycle assembly and completion. Once finished and as part of this exclusivity, each motorcycle will be numbered and linked to the owners identify.
