Saxon Motorcycles Europe introduces The Whip, Its 4th European Model.

SaxonmotorcycleWhipIs Europe the new motorcycle Eldorado? Big Dog Motorcycles, Big Bear Choppers and Saxon think so. A devaluated US dollar against the Euro (a 68% devaluation since Euro introduction as a common currency in 2000) helps a lot make American motorcycles desirable on the other side of the big blue pond. At the European Bike Week from September 5 to 13 Saxon Motorcycles Europe will introduce the new European model called the Whip. This  type of hard tail/high neck chopper seems to attract European buyers while it is mostly considered “so year 2000” in the US.  The prototype of the Whip was shown during the Hamburg Harley Days in Germany and the Custom Show Viva La Clusaz in France. The Whip is the 4th Saxon European legal model. All models are produced in the US before being exported. Saxon Motorcycles stated to me that  they are the #1 USA produced mass production custom motorcycles sold in Europe. The company also added a new dealer in Spain. I remind you that since August Saxon USA has new owners (see my article).  Saxon Motorcycles Europe.

    What is up with Saxon USA? New ownership? Will they take care of my Warlord warranty?
    Will Jerry Petty’s promise to me turn into a lie? New owners, speak up!

    Don’t hold your breath for your warranty, Petty is probably sitting on the beach in Rocky Point Mexico at the new resort his other company built. Petty never was, or is a bike builder! He’s a general contractor who jumped on the band wagon a few years back. Good luck with your warranty though.

    Have to admit, I’ve only seen or heard of one Saxon on the road here in the UK – and that was a bike that the owner bought in the USA and shipped back. Alas, Europe isn’t quite the gold mine that a lot of people believe it to be, and the style we’re seeing coming up has left the high-necked chopper way behind. Maybe not quite ‘so 2000’, but certainly things have moved on.
