Matchless is back!

Remember these ICONIC motorcycles?

http://www.motorcyclenews.com/mcn/ne...hless-is-back/

Iconic British firm reignited with new Model X Reloaded.

Matchless is a name which has long been missing from the roll call of active motorcycle manufacturers, but recent patent applications and statements of intent from the current owners promised that a new model was under development – and MCN has gained access to exclusive details of the new bike ahead of its expected launch at the Milan motorcycle show in early November.

Having been the leading British manufacturer, and the catalyst for the once enormous superpower that was AMC (Associated Motorcycle Company: Matchless, AJS, Sunbeam, Indian and Norton), Matchless effectively ceased to exist in 1966 (they thought it was all over, and it was). But the rights to the brand were purchased by the Malenotti family – of recent Belstaff fame – in 2012, and used on a new clothing line called Matchless London, managed by Michele Malenotti, in the spirit of the original clothing division of Matchless formed by the founder Henry Collier in the 1930s.

And now the firm is moving from clothing to bikes, with the expected launch of its first new bike, the Model X Reloaded, a design inspired by the legendary Model X originally built over 80 years ago. Reloaded has been designed by renowned industry stalwart Franco Malenotti, along with the Matchless design team.

Controls

There is clear provision for both feet-under, and feet-forward controls on Reloaded, each being permanently linked and apparently adjustable, thus giving the rider an instant choice between riding stances.

We’ll have to wait for the official unveiling, expected to be at Milan on November 6, for an indication of the price and availability of the new Model X, but we would expect the bikes to be available in 2015, and to be priced in line with other relatively low-volume bikes entering this part of the market, putting the Reloaded somewhere north of £30,000.

That's more than $48,665.00 to you and me
