Vanguard is a new brand with a premium motorcycle designed and built in Brooklyn, NY. The company is led by renowned designer Edward Jacobs and serial entrepreneur Francois-Xavier Terny. They partnered a couple years ago with the intention of “ building, with a fresh perspective and unique approach, a premium motorcycle brand of revolutionary effect.” And you must admit that you never saw a motorcycle like that.
The Roadster – to be officially unveiled at the NY Motorcycle Show – Dec 9 -11 at the Javits Center in Manhattan – demonstrates a lot of forward-thinking design and pioneering features without equivalent in the market. Jacobs and Terny intend to open new perspectives for the motorcycle industry and to bikers very unique models without equivalent. Vanguard will follow with a sportsbike and a cruiser built on the same powertrain platform.
Designing the Roadster was done with a fresh approach, breaking everything down into rethinking needs and solutions. The result is a unique and striking contemporary silhouette blending form and function. The Roadster boasts many unique features including a frameless structural engine, unitized crankcase, integrated exhaust and a tablet-size digital dashboard with rear-view camera. Vanguard motorcycles will be assembled in New York City at the Brooklyn Navy Yard with production of the Roadster stated to begin in 2018. Vanguard is looking for dealers to be ambassadors of the new brand and is already accepting direct pre-orders with price starting at $29,995.
