Roehrich’s goal is to produce the fastest and finest handling machine available, so the V-twin is housed in a radical beam frame that gives a claimed "stiff, lightweight structure with a stable, balanced handling dynamic." Side radiators place the weight forward, allowing a suitable wheelbase and weight distribution. The V-Roehr 1130 is equipped with Öhlins suspension, Brembo brakes, Marchesini wheels, and carbon-fiber bodywork. Optional engine kits produce up to 180 hp and over 85 ft lbs of torque. With its Ducati-esque silhouette (which certainly can’t hurt sales) and top-shelf components, this new American motorcycle has an excellent chance of success. Production of the first 50 units is scheduled to begin in 2008.
