Vee Two Super Squalo

The Vee Two Super Squalo reflected the merger of Vee Two and Australia Automotive Components (AAC), who already owned Sprintex superchargers. AAC were keen to develop a range of supercharger kits for V-Twin motorcycles - mainly Ducati and Harley Davidsons, so bought Vee Two for their expertise in V-twin motorcycles.

The first model that Vee Two designed with AAC was the Super Squalo, a "streetfighter" model based on Ducati's 999S. Pierre Terblanche's design of the Ducati 999S was originally received with mixed reviews, with many Ducati fans not at all liking the styling of the first model to replace the Tamburini designed ever-updated legendary 916, which had retained the same basic styling from 1994 to 2002. Leaving the styling debate aside, the 999 was a technically advanced model, and a very competitive one at that; winning the World Superbike Championship for the first two years that it was entered.

Once again, John Keogh was employed to change the styling of the original model into a Vee Two masterpiece, and the minimalist design with unique features such as a rear-view camera fed to a tank mounted screen instead of mirrors and tubular single sided swingarm; mixed with a brutal 204 rwhp MoTeC-controlled engine package, made for a very exciting machine.
Unfortunately, only two prototype motorcycles were ever produced as Brook left the company to retire in 2005.
