New motorcycle brand Vanguard unveil their first motorcycle
Vanguard are a brand-new motorcycle manufacturer who are based in New York City. This weekend was an exciting time for Vanguard as they unveiled their first low production volume model at the New York Motorcycle Show. The new model falls under the name of The Roadster which has been designed to carry a ‘contemporary silhouette’.
Now, as I’m sure you would’ve guessed, the Roadster is currently in the form of a prototype and it is expected to be in production in 2018.
The motorcycle utilises a S&S X-Wedge V-Twin 1917-cc engine and it has been said that the Roadster will produce 110 ft lbs or torque, carry around 21 litres of fuel and weigh around 250 kg. Not bad! Moreover, the new model utilises fully adjustable Ohlin’s suspension and has six-speed transmission.
We’re extremely excited to see what else Vanguard have to offer and look forward to watching them grow as a motorcycle manufacturer. I’m sure we’ll be hearing more from Vanguard very soon.
