Heretic Limited Edition Street Bike

Even today, there is a proliferation of limited production custom motorcycles. One brand I didn’t know very well is Ecosse Moto Works. And the story is always almost the same. It was founded in 2001 by Donald Atchison, a former road racer & engineer who wanted to build his idea of the ideal street bike. Donald has a passion for Aston Martins and fighter planes, and it shows in his work. ECOSSE intends to build several different models with the same underlying theme: a synergistic combination of innovation, craftsmanship and technology with a nod to the company’s racing influence. The models share chassis styling, materials and certain elements to instantly alert consumers of the ECOSSE pedigree. Yet each serves a distinctly different purpose and is handcrafted in limited quantities to motivate innovators, collectors and aficionados. You are looking at the model called “Heretic” (which I think is a very good name) with all the attributes, aesthetically and mechanically, of a road racing bike. It features a polished 45-degree, 120 cu. In (1966 cc), square (4.25 bore x 4.25 stroke) American V-Twin engine, equipped with a Mikuni 45 mm flat side carburetor, installed in a chrome-moly frame, 6-speed transmission, wet chain drive, stainless exhaust, a wheelbase of 60.5 with 2 x 17” forged aluminum wheels, Ohlins adjustable front & rear suspension, ISR dual 6-piston brakes. And to increase output and reduce weight all body work is in carbon fiber (headlight, fenders, tank, tail, tach shroud, air filter cover & seat pans). There are many options and it will set you back a minimum of $50,000. Ecosse Moto Works

    Had a chance to look at the ECOSSE web site.

    They seem to have captured the essence of the “Norvin” in a contemporary package. Quite pleasing.
