Step forward Sylvain and Florent Berneron, two French brothers who have a knack for craftsmanship especially when working with motorcycles.
Sylvain (27) is perhaps the better known half of the partnership that makes up PRAËM, having worked within BMW Motorrad’s design team for five years. He is also the man behind Holographic Hammer, a secondary company formed under the PRAËM banner.
Florent Berneron (25) is well versed with motorcycles too. As a former army helicopter technician, Florent has the necessary aptitude to construct and shape as well as being technically adept. Like his elder brother, Florent has a passion for motorcycles. Together the brothers are possibly the ideal partnership in building very exclusive powered two-wheelers.
Best of both worlds.

“We have used Sicom carbon-ceramic brakes,” says Sylvain. “The front and rear suspension is standard because we wanted to keep the electronic adjustment. The triple clamps are modified, the front air inlet system is redesigned to fit the fairing and the airbox cover is now made from aluminium. The engine is stock because it is way powerful enough although we now use titanium exhaust downpipes by Akrapovič with a one-off silencer. The radiator is of endurance specification so no ventilators anymore. Brakes and coolant hoses all feature Stäubli quick release connectors. The subframe and battery carrier are made by us.”
