Voxan Black Magic 2004 by Chris Cornell (Soundgarden)

Being able to get one Voxan Black Magic, which also belonged to the American singer Chris Cornell, is now possible thanks to the online auction that Bonhams will carry out as part of the “Summer Sales” event. Furthermore, and it seems, it will not be necessary to spend a lot of money to be able to acquire it, at least under the criteria of the expert's initial estimate.

Focusing on the motorcycle itself, we are looking at a roadster frame with marked cafe racer features and equipped with a propeller. 996 cc 72º V-Twin. With a power limited to 100 HPoffers us up to 103 Nm at 6,500 rpmall of this carried to the rear wheel through a six-speed transmission.

The aluminum double cradle tubular chassis is responsible for housing the vigorous twin-cylinder and in addition to offering excellent rigidity, it also manages to keep the final weight at bay, with just 185 kilograms declared dry. The chassis is completed with a WP suspension or a braking system with double 320 mm diameter front discs.

The brand optionally gave us the possibility of configuring our Voxan Black Magic to taste. From Motorcycle Specs they defined it as: “Voxan's Black Magic Roadster is a cool remix of the classic bike, but with modern tire options, suspension, fuel injection and electrical systems, plus a distinctive styling package that you either love or hate.”
