Film star Keanu Reeves‘ and his Arch Motorcycle Company have this week unveiled their new range of motorbikes in the form of the new KRGT-1 Bike which is powered by a 124 cubic inch v-twin engine or 2,032cc in metric.
The KRGT-1has been developed with industry veterans S&S Cycle and Baker Drivetrain and combines both classic design using state-of-the-art manufacturing techniques.
“Traditional V-twin side-mounted intakes lay in the way of the rider’s leg, disrupting ergonomics and balance. Working in conjunction with S&S Cycle we developed the Arch Down Draft Induction System, positioning it between the billet aluminum fuel cells. Making the KRGT-1 sleek, comfortable and agile.
Shaped and efficient intake dams collect and deliver air to the torquey 124” S&S V-twin keeping it fully aspirated. Multi-function design allows the dams to support and frame the KRGT-1’s billet aluminum headlight housing.
Each KRGT-1 gas tank is machined from 534 pounds of billet aluminum. This 66 hour process yields two 9 pound fuel cells which are then custom finished and joined. The right cell interior was designed and reinforced to act as a structural chassis member. The entire Arch Down Draft system is contained between the two fuel cell chambers and frame.”
