Last Friday I published the unofficial picture taken at the Indianapolis Dealer Expo. Today, Big Dog Motorcycles officially announces the upcoming introduction of its lower price model based on its popular chopper-style platform. Simply called the Big Dog Chopper and available in May, 2010, this new model is marketed as a high-style, high-quality Big Dog motorcycle experience with an MSRP in the $21,000 range that will appeal to a wide range of riders.
The question you already asked over and over is about the components used on this model. Sheldon Coleman, founder and CEO of Big Dog Motorcycles states that “Specifications of the motorcycle include a wide range of upscale components, starting with a 111 cubic inch S&S engine and a six speed transmission. In addition, components include chrome handlebar controls, a new handlebar array, chrome forward controls, the new BDM multifunction speedometer, machined aluminum wheels, a new rear suspension, a 42 degree rake, a beefy 250 mm rear tire and a full line of passenger-friendly accessories”. Coleman adds that “Thanks to the cooperation with our dedicated suppliers and the hard work of our engineering experts, we are able to provide classic Big Dog performance and style to a broader range of consumers” . Acceleration is stated to be from 0 to 60 in 3.9 seconds and fuel consumption 42 mpg. The new Big Dog Chopper will be offered standard with a solid paint job and optional custom graphics.
