2XTREEM Motorcycle TV Produces
NASA Apollo Tribute ZX14

For their first project of the 2008 season, the 2XTREEM crew creates a custom KAWASAKI ZX14 as a tribute to the SATURN APOLLO missions and the 1969 moon landing. With power like a Saturn V rocket, the new ZX14 is the perfect salute one of the greatest times in America’s history, The Apollo Space Program. The idea came from Joe Capicotti of 2Xtreem Motorcycle TV. He had never forgotten the impression the landing on moon made on him as a child and he wanted to bring that magic back to the American Public. The timing this project coincides with the Orion project for returning to the moon. 2XTREEM hopes the Apollo Bike will also bring NASA to the attention of the younger generations.
