It is one thing to create one-off high-end custom motorcycles, and it is quite another to venture into the realm of production motorcycles. Lauge Jensen motorcycles of Denmark, producers of the €42,800 limited edition Great Dane custom bike, has revealed the Viking Concept, which it hopes will reach a wider audience.

The bike was designed by Henrik Fisker, who is known for his work on the Aston Martin DB9 and V8 Vantage, Fisker Karma, and BMW Z8.

Speaking of the Viking Concept, Fisker says “It’s been a dream of mine to design and create a motorcycle for many years, and this is the first time I have the freedom to go and do it.”

Lauge Jensen Viking ConceptThe claimed specifications for the Viking Concept are impressive, mainly centering on the air-cooled 45-degree V-twin motor from an unnamed builder in Wisconsin. The powerplant is said to produce 100-horsepower, and get an astounding 70 mpg while topping out at 130 mph in overdrive sixth gear.

Additionally, it also meets the stringent 2016 Euro IV emissions standards, according to Lauge Jensen, and the dry weigh is a claimed 660 pounds.

Styling is more progressive than traditional, with sleek, uninterrupted lines from the fuel tank to the tip of the rear fender. Carbon fiber adds modernity to the appearance.

“It’s great to have Henrik, one of the world’s leading vehicle designers and a fellow Dane, working in partnership with us to help create a really special, emotional design,” Lauge Jensen owner Anders Kirk Johansen said.

Johansen is part of the Lego family empire. He brings the financial muscle and brand-building know-how needed to launch a new motorcycle company. “Revealing a concept bike is all about gauging demand,” Johansen says, “but, if it’s there, I look forward to producing the Viking Concept for the mainstream market.”
