Arch Motorcycle Unveils Limited Edition “Method 143” Model. Only 23 Units.

The latest creation from Keanu Reeves/Gard Hollinger’s Arch Motorcycle, the Method 143, is really badass. After the successful KRGT-1 and S models, the Method 143 continues Arch’s commitment to limited production, excellent design and engineering high-dollar price motorcycles. Add multiple customizing options. The Method 143 features a revolutionary carbon fiber mono-cell chassis, maybe the first of this type ever used by a motorcycle manufacturer. To it is attached a CNC machined billet aluminum swingarm.

Method 143 uses the extremely powerful, high torque 143 cubic-inch from S&S Cycles paired to a MotoGP-inspired titanium exhaust with a carbon fiber skin around its muffler. Fuel cell is integrated inside the frame. Front suspension is a set of Ohlins FGRT forks with an Arch Motorcycle proprietary setup. Rear suspension uses a pair of Ohlins rear shocks. If you have to ask for the price you probably can’t afford one… But I bet that the 23 units that Arch Motorcycle is building are going to find owners very fast.

Two New Hard Saddlebag Latch Handles

Two new options to replace the dull OEM saddlebag latches on ’14-later Harley-Davidson® Touring models. New Quick Draw and Zombie™ Saddlebag Latch Handles are direct replacements offering a different styling and ergonomics, with less curvature than the stock handles to rest at an easier access point.

Quick Draw Latch Handles: they feature embedded rubber pads and a wide profile on the front end for sure-fingered grip. Zombie Handles: they sport the Kuryakyn collection’s trademark sinister skeleton styling as a complementing match to Kuryakyn’s popular Zombie Levers for H-D Touring.

Both sets of latch handles are constructed from durable cast aluminum offered in chrome or gloss black finishes. Fitment: ’14-later Electra Glides, Road Glides, Road Kings and Street Glides. MSRP: $59.99 (pair)

Harley-Davidson Unveils Two “New” Sportsters. A Forty-Eight Special And Iron 1200 Fuse.

Both Sportsters, the Sportster Forty Eight Special And The Sportster Fuse, got a throw-back design with a modern performance. These 2 new Sportsters are the latest in a line of 100 motorcycles the company plans to introduce by 2027. Maybe these 2 Sportster designs are part of the solution for Harley-Davidson, an iconic aging brand with declining sales…In this case it boils down to a garage-built attitude with high handlebars and cool graphics.

its introduction in 1957, Sportster motorcycles have been repeatedly reimagined, in the hands of both the Motor Company, custom bike builders and bike owners Sportsters turn into a bobber, a chopper, a scrambler, a café racer or as a hero on flat tracks and drag strips and road-race courses. The Sportster has always been an accessible entry-point motorcycle or first-time riders.

“Since its inception, the Sportster has offered the perfect combination of size, power and character that makes it appealing to so many different riders,” said Brad Richards, Harley-Davidson V.P. of Styling & Design. “A Sportster is a relatively easy bike to strip down and reinvent. What we’ve done to create the new Iron 1200 and Forty-Eight Special is what Sportster owners have been doing with their own bikes for generations.”

New fuel tank graphics distinguish both the Iron 1200 and the Forty-Eight Special, and combine bold color stripes with a formal typeface, color and graphic elements originally popular in the 1970s. “The art on these two fuel tanks reflect contemporary trends we are seeing on custom bikes and in design in general, a move away from more complex and intricate art to a look that’s very simple and clean,” said Richards. “It’s also important to note that these graphics respect the shape of the fuel tank and in the case of the Sportster, that tank shape is a classic design element in its own right.”

Iron 1200™

The Iron 1200 recipe starts with power. A 1202cc Evolution® 1200 V-Twin engine delivers 36 percent more torque (73.0 ft. lbs. vs. 53.8 ft. lb.) than the 883 Evolution engine that powers the Iron 883, the original urban brawler in the Sportster family. The Iron 1200 brings more punch to the street fight – more power to blast away from green lights and more mid-range to muscle through traffic. More power means more rowdy fun.

Harley-Davidson Applies For “Revelation” Trademark For Its Electric Motorcycle Motor Technology

We know that Harley-Davidson, like Indian, is extremely serious about mass producing electric motorcycles as soon as possible, possibly as a model year 2019. H-D just filed an application to trademark the name “Revelation” with the United States Patent and Trademark Office for motorcycle powertrain, batteries and chargers. Milwaukee already uses similar sounding names like the “Evolution” and “Revolution X” for  some of  its v-twin engine models.

In 2016, about three dozen LiveWire electric motorcycles produced by Harley-Davidson were tested by about 6,800 riders at dealer events around the U.S and Europe. These demos brought the company a lot of information about what riders like in terms of design, and sound and their expectations regarding clutch-free acceleration, riding range and price.

Overall, the Livewire project received a very positive reception. Even the low-pitched whine was not an obstacle and didn’t bother many, especially under 40 riders who are more environment conscious and more open to any new technology. Maybe, Harley will even try to trademark its own-fabricated sound…

“Small towns are a direct reflection of their small businesses. Want a thriving Main Street? Lift them up. Invest in them.”

The Modern Sportster Café Racer

Sportster Café Racer jobs are popping up all over the world. Using the same basic ergonomics they don’t have much resemblance with those that the Rockers of the British subculture were riding in the 50’s for road races between transport cafés. At that time, Rockers were buying factory-made motorcycles (not Harleys) and tuned them up to appear like mean racing bikes that they used as objects of intimidation and masculinity. The most appreciated bike by the Leather Boys was the Triton, a custom motorcycle built with a Norton Featherbed frame and a Triumph Bonneville engine. Although many brands and models have been and continue to be used as platforms to create Café Racers, today the Harley Sportster, because of its popularity (61 years of continuous production) is the most used model foundation to recreate a minimalist styling road racer reminiscent of the rebellious spirit of the English Ton-Up boys.

This classically designed Sportster Café Racer (named 26 after his lucky number) belongs to Hong Kong based Australian native James Middleton who is an experienced rider already owner of a couple of high end Ducatis and other racing motorcycles. He approached very reputable Sydney builder Gasoline Motor Co. asking for a fun and very easy handling machine to ride around town when he touches down in Australia. A bike based on a 883 Iron Sportster with a strong Café Racer vibe to make him feel like a kid at Christmas, but without losing any of today’s Harley modernity and of course keeping the project street legal.

A complete tear down was necessary to remove all unnecessary tabs and welds from the factory frame. A task followed by the fabrication of a prominent seat cowling, probably one of the most typical specifications of an early Café Racer. Strangely the racing fairing was forgotten. RSD parts did the trick of converting the Sportster into an apparent Café Racer with the right stance and look. It includes low clip-on bars, grips, levers and rear footrest sets, whilst lowering the rear end with a set of high end progressive shocks to create a comfortable and low down riding position.

It’s a complete low-configuration system, comprising head pipe, muffler and brackets, and is built entirely of stainless steel. Features include a re-packable muffler with a billet end cap, and solid power gains on stock to modified engines on all course types, from Short Tracks to Miles. The system was designed from the ground up for AFT Singles and meets American Flat Track’s 105-decibel sound limit. A high-configuration version for both bikes is also in development.

Custom Ducati Scrambler

The Scrambler name and design concept are a revival of the Scrambler line of dual-sport singles made from 1962–1974. The new Ducati Scrambler is a L-twin engined standard or roadster motorcycle made by Ducati.

The new Scrambler was introduced at the 2014 Intermot motorcycle show with US sales beginning in 2015 in seven configurations: the 803 cc Classic, Urban Enduro, Icon, Flat Track Pro, Full Throttle, Italia Independent, and the Sixty2.

The l-twin powered Ducati Scrambler was cooceived to be customized and has served as the base for a variety of customs, from cafe-style retro to off-road tracker. This one-off from Aellambler is putting the trellis frame and engine on full display. The two-piece bodywork combines the front fairing, fuel tank/seat covered in a striking brass foil finish! Awesome!

Following Recall Related To Brake Problems Injured Rider Files Lawsuit Against Harley-Davidson

Only days after Harley-Davidson Motor Co. officialized a motorcycle recall due to potentially defective brakes, a Texas rider filed a lawsuit in the wake of an accident that resulted in 11 surgeries with probably more to come.

His attorney alleges that 6 months before the December 2016 motorcycle accident the company was aware of braking system failures failures at abnormally high rates. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration was investigating complaints about the problem since summer 2016,

According to his attorney, John Alexander Gifford was riding home from work in Austin in 2016 when he applied the brakes on his Harley-Davidson Night Rod motorcycle, lost control and slammed into trees near the road. As a result of the accident, Gifford has undergone at least 11 surgeries and suffers through “immeasurable pain,” according to the suit. “Instead of immediately contacting its customers, including my client, Harley-Davidson did all it could to avoid a recall, to blame its own customers, and to drag its feet on providing potentially lifesaving information to the owners.

Harley-Davidson CEO Matt Levatich To Investors. Patience As Sales And Stock Slide

In an interview with Reuters in his office at the company’s headquarter in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Harley CEO Matt Levatich said:

– the the company is not exploring a merger with a rival or a private equity buyout, as some investors have speculated.

– asked to be patient with his strategy to turn around the slump in demand for its iconic motorcycles.

– reiterated that Harley is spending millions of dollars on product development and marketing efforts, including promoting its learn-to-ride academies at showrooms, where Harley-Davidson certified coaches provide riding and safety lessons.

– justified that his ridership program would transform the motorcycle-maker into a “customer-creator.” But he does not have an answer when it will return Harley to sales growth in the United States, its biggest market. I

– stated that in 2017 the ridership program added 32,000 new riders in the United States, a positive trend and that he wants to build on it.

“Passion Built” Custom Motorcycles At 2018 Sturgis Buffalo Chip®’ Exhibit

For the 10th year, Custom bikes built from the pure passion and love of the machine will be exhibited at the Buffalo Chip free to the public this August. Curated by Michael Lichter “Passion Built – Garage to Gallery” will bring together a collection of stunning motorcycles “Passion Built” for this exhibition by 40 builders and artists. This one-time exhibition will assemble a remarkable group of professional-quality custom motorcycles all built outside of a professional workplace during the builders’ free time. “The fact that these people are creating these bikes, mostly in the evenings or weekends, after a full work-week, is amazing. We will clearly see their love for the work on display this year. Everyone attending the 2018 Rally really should see this free exhibit” said Rod Woodruff, Sturgis Buffalo Chip President.

Most of those chosen for the 2018 exhibit must find the energy and passion to work on their projects after returning home from a full-time day job. Some, such as Harley-Davidson Motor Company Vice President of Styling & Design Brad Richards, work in the industry but must still find personal time to fuel their passion for building. Musicians Xavier Muriel of Buckcherry and Gilby Clarke formerly of Guns and Roses will both be displaying their new creations. From attorney Dave Polgreen to lighting expert Randy Noldge, the list of exhibitors for the 2018 Motorcycles As Art show brings together a varied group of motorcycle builders with a deep-seated desire to create.
