The Barracuda Mk I
The Barracuda Mk I has been the world leader in motorcycle engine buggies for 12 years. In 2017 the Mk II Barracuda was released, bringing several upgrades, updates and design tweaks.
Many of the Mk I parts are compatible with the Mk II Barracuda. Where a Mk I component has been superseded by a new version, this has been noted. The Mk I parts list only contains those parts which are not compatible with the Mk II Barracuda and are available for existing Barracuda Mk I owners or build projects in progress.
The primary component differences are listed below:
The Mk I Barracuda was equipped with PIRCV rear suspension. The Mk II Barracuda now features the CV2 rear suspension.
Front Suspension Uprights
The Mk II Barracuda uprights have revised geometry with more height and steeper kingpin inclination. This brings the Barracuda suspension in line with the X2 buggy with common parts. The Mk II uprights also feature XVS brake calipers and 207mm rotors - these brakes were available as an upgrade for the Mk I Barracuda but are now standard for the Mk II. The Mk I's original CAL032 brakes cannot be fitted to the Mk II.
Front Upper Suspension Arms
The Mk I one-piece welded arms have been replaced with two-piece "knife-and-fork" arms which allow easier caster adjustment. The arms are also slightly shorter to suit the revised upright geometry.
