Forward FTR Machine Ridden by Colin Edwards (The Texas Tornado)-

The NGM Forward Racing Team 2013 FTR MotoGP machines
As used by Colin Edwards and Claudio Corti throughout the 2013
This is a rare opportunity to acquire one or both of the Forward
FTR MotoGP machines with one having been ridden by two times World
Superbike Champion, Colin Edwards and the other ridden by the 2008
Superbike runner up, Claudio Corti.

Both machines are offered with their Kawasaki ZX-10R engines tuned
by Kawasaki's French based tuning company partner, Akira. With the
power output and dry weight of only 157kg and 245+ bhp of available
power, these machines are capable of speeds in excess of 325 kph.
An FTR MGP13 aluminium tri-spar chassis provides the framework with
Öhlines suspension, Brembo brakes and an Akrapovic exhaust system
mated to the Kawasaki power plants.

"FTR technical support post sale will include a test
run of the machine with a grand prix technician to ensure the
customer is fully briefed with the workings of the machinery and
also two VIP paddock passes for the British round of the 2014
MotoGP World Championship at Silverstone on August 29-31 and
hospitality with the NGM Forward Racing Team."

In today's market, it is extremely rare to find a genuine MotoGP
machine for sale, it is even rarer to find two fully working with
their fully tuned and ready Akira Kawasaki engines. In addition;
not only does this represent an opportunity to acquire these rare
machines at a fraction of the build costs but there is also a
promise of support post sale from the Forward FTR MotoGP team who
will supply the services of one of their technicians, anywhere
within the UK mainland, to demonstrate the machines technicalities
and procedures to any new owner/s.

Colin Edwards II, born February 27, 1974 in Houston, Texas, is
an American professional motorbike racer. In 1995 Colin started his
career with Yamaha in the Superbike World Championship. His
results in 1995 were disappointing as Edwards struggled to adjust
to the demands of competing in a global competition, and he missed
the last two meetings after team-mate Yasutomo Nagai perished in a
crash at Assen In 1996 he achieved a greatly improved sixth overall
in the Superbike World championship. 1997 Colin was forced to
withdraw from competing due to injuries sustained in the fifth
round of the Superbike World Championship. He was replaced in the
Yamaha World Superbike Team and was unable to negotiate a position
in the 500cc Grand Prix competition. Fortunately he was able to
conclude a deal with Honda to ride the RC45 motorcycle in the 1998
Superbike World Championship. Colin finished fifth overall that
year, and earned his first solo international victories with a
double win at Monza followed by his 3rd win of the season at Brands

In 1999, Colin managed several more victories for Honda including
leading teammate Aaron Slight home twice at Brands Hatch, giving
Honda a rare Double-1-2 and ended the season in second overall
position, behind champion Carl Fogarty In 2000, Colin rode the new
Honda VTR-1000 SP1/RC51 twin cylinder motorcycle to overall victory
in the Superbike World Championship after Yamaha rider and points
leader, Noriuki Haga was disqualified for testing positive for a
banned substance. Colin came second to Ducati rider, Troy Bayliss
in 2001 but reclaimed the title from Bayliss in 2002 in a dramatic
fashion, clinching the championship in the final race of the season
in Imola. Colin also holds the record for the most points in a
single season with 552 points in 2002 breaking the previous record
of 489 points set by Carl Fogarty in 1999. Runner-up Troy Bayliss
also broke the previous record with 541 points.

After winning his 2nd Superbike World Championship, Colin moved to
MotoGP in 2003. He rode for the greatly troubled Aprilia team on
the RS Cube, and his only notable accomplishment in that otherwise
dismal year was avoiding serious injury when his machine caught
fire due to an incorrectly fitted fuel cap at Sachsenring. Yet
Colin, known in all motorcycle paddocks as a great bike tester,
tried to no avail to help lift the struggling team. 2004 saw Colin
riding for Telefonica Movistar Honda, and he achieved his first
MotoGP podium position at Donington. Colin finished the season in
fifth overall position. In 2005, Colin moved to Gauloises Yamaha
factory team as the teammate to the world champion Valentino Rossi.
His best result for 2005 was a second position at Laguna Seca,
behind compatriot Nicky Hayden. He finished the season fourth

In the 2013 MotoGP World Championship, Colin finished 16 times in
the 18 races held with the best result being 9th at the Catalunya
MotoGP and accruing a total of 41 points for the se...
