The BT-05 CENTO, a contemporary café racer designed by Blacktrack Motors, is built around the robust Moto Guzzi 1200 Griso engine.

Sacha Lakic, the founder and designer of Blacktrack Motors, has long aspired to create a café racer featuring a potent Moto Guzzi V-twin engine. The BT-05, meticulously crafted in Italy, is purpose-built for the racetrack.

Admiration for this brand and its engine arises from the soulful characteristics they embody, including the unique sound, vibrations, and lateral movement inherent in a longitudinally mounted V-twin configuration.The design of the engine, seen from all angles, and the unique shape of the drive shaft also contribute to its charm. The neoclassic BT-05 boasts a 1,400cc Moto Guzzi engine within a custom chassis developed by Guareschi Moto in Parma Italy.

Every element of the BT-05 has been carefully chosen to achieve specific goals: minimizing weight, increasing power and torque, and ensuring an exhilarating riding experience. In a fitting tribute to Moto Guzzi’s centenary, Blacktrack Motors has aptly named their latest model the BT-05 CENTO.

The BT-05 CENTO is a track-specific café racer, and is therefore not homologated for street use.
Nevertheless, if a customer wishes to adapt their BT-05 CENTO for use on public roads, it will be possible. Blacktrack Motors will ship each motorcycle with a full complement of TÜV approved accessories. These include a dashboard, LED lighting, mirrors and a license plate support.
So the BT-05 can be made street legal (depending on each country’s individual laws).
