ARCH Motorcycle Company was founded by Gard Hollinger and Keanu Reeves who is an actor, producer, director and musician belonging to Hollywood. The goal while setting up the company was to create limited production American V-twin performance motorcycles. When it comes to Gard Hollinger, the ARCH KRGT-1 is the culmination of all that's come before for Hollinger. A studied blend of retro-modern design and performance. The ultimate test of craft and imagination. Their innovation the KRGT-1 is an impressive and imposing motorcycle, stretching some 68inches between its axles and weighing some 600lbs fully fueled and ready to ride.
The motorcycle has a storied history as a canvas for artistic expression. ARCH Motorcycles Company advances classic design using state-of-the-art manufacturing techniques, uniting refreshed style and modern performance technology, bringing the contours of the past in to the present. Design, technology, craftsmanship, horsepower, torque, fit, and finish all mean very little unless they support impressive real world performance handling. The KRGT-1 nicely bridges the divide between cruiser and a sport bike, its sultry and exotic appearance helps in gaining attention from gearheads.
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, the company has developed the ARCH Down Draft Induction System, positioning it between the billet aluminium fuel cells. Marking the KRGT-1 sleek, comfortable and agile. Shaped and efficient intake air dams collect and deliver air to the torque 124 S&S V-Twin keeping it fully aspirated. Multi-function design allows the dams to support and frame the KRGT-1's billet aluminium headlight housing. Each KRGT-1 gas tank is machined 534 pounds of billet aluminium. 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.
The ARCH Cove Reflective taillight embodies design elements that challenge expectation. The multi-function LED unit sits inverted and hidden within the reflective aluminium rear cowling, eliminating the need for traditional plastic lensing. The ARCH billet aluminium swing arm requires over 17 hours of machining. Hidden behind its strong sculpted exterior, pocketing and wire channels reduce weight by 55%. Titanium adjusters and a hollow chromoly axle complete the assembly.
Overall, each KRGT-1 is personalized to enhance the ownership experince. The forward control or mid control option and a limitless array of unique finishes are just the beginning. Years of development and thousands of miles of testing provide KRGT-1 owners a level of comfort and confidence rarely experienced in exotic transportation. Stunning appearance and performance is the bonus. Now whether you want to buy this bike, or you have the space in your garage to accommodate this bike largely depends on the size of your bank account, there is a reservation fee and then comes the cost, listed in dollars it costs $78,000 which is just for starters and the price goes on, you can do the conversion process by yourself and get shocked by yourself.
The construction of the chassis on the KRGT-1 is second to none and would probably be certified for space flight.
