In September of last year, the Engina custom build—which, believe it or not, is based on an Indian Chief Vintage—was unveiled at the Glemseck 101 event and immediately blew away its competition. Stunt girl and model Mai-Lin Senf rode the café racer-style custom in the “Clash of Legends” race. But that was just the beginning. Since then Engina has cleaned house at various sprint and design contests; it also just achieved a landmark accomplishment—winning at the Custom Show Emirates in Abu Dhabi.
Engina’s Abu Dhabi victory is a big deal because a lot of its other conquests took place in Europe. In Germany, it picked up the winning trophy at the Custom Show in Dortmund and won Best Streetbike at the Berliner Motorrad Tage motorcycle show in Berlin.
Elsewhere in Europe, the café racer also caused a ruckus, winning the prestigious Ferro dell’Anno award at the Motor Bike Expo in Verona, Italy, in the Best Professional category. At the Swiss Custom Show in Zürich, Engina secured first prize—giving it a ticket for the internationally acclaimed Custom Show Emirates in Abu Dhabi. On this world stage last weekend, Engina competed in the V2 Custom Class—with a sensational result, taking second place.
All of this adds up to a kill streak across the pond. Hopefully it’s enough to bring the bike Stateside so we Yankee folk can see it in action locally.
