Roehr 1250sc

The Roehr 1250sc pre production prototype has been completed and plans are to begin production late this year. The bike is powered by a 180 hp supercharged Harley Davidson Revolution engine. This should be one extremely interesting motorcycle. I like the looks and I really like the blown Revolution engine. Final price has not been set.

Let’s see, a 180 hp supercharged American made V-Twin sportbike. Yep, I like it!

Press release:

06 May 2008, Gurnee, IL. USA. Roehr Motorcycles LLC is pleased to announce the completion of the pre-production Roehr 1250sc. The company is now working towards production commencing this Fall.

The 1250sc is powered by a specially developed 180hp, supercharged version of the Harley-Davidson* Revolution* engine, making the Roehr 1250sc the fastest and most powerful sport bike built in America.

European flair and American muscle are combined with the highest quality cycle components from world class companies such as Ohlins, Marchesini, Brembo, Akropovic and Pirelli. These components combined with the unique Roehr Bi-Metal composite beam frame contribute to the machines outstanding handling manners, offering quick precise steering response with confidence inspiring stability and rider feedback.

The Roehr 1250sc is proudly hand crafted in the USA and will be available in limited numbers. Final pricing to be announced when determined. Roehr Motorcycles is now accepting orders to reserve this exclusive machine as well as offering dealership opportunities.

I think they were asking about $50K for the bike. The gas tank is in the undertail and it's still a Hardley lump of a motor. Talk about top-heavy. Here's website: www.roehrmotorcycles.com.

Notes to any american company interested in developing a sportbike:

1. You're right, most americans would like to own an american made sportbike provided that it was reliable and raceable against bikes.

2. Neither of the aforementioned qualities can be met by using a of a Harley motor. Seriously....Buell has tried and failed for years. Do some research befoer you follow in the path of failure.

3. Vtwins of ANY type, but especially harley are OUT. Ducati had to whine to every racing organization on the planet for a displacement increase to stay competitive. Once again....do the research!

4. No one wants to spend $50k on a bike unless it has a LOOOOOONNGGGG race-winning pedigree.

5. Reiterated for effect: DO SOME RESEARCH

The V-Rod engine in it's original form was powering the VR1000 in AMA racing. The added a heavier crank, among other weight adding mods to the engine and cases, to make it suitable for a cruiser. It's a heavy and rather large engine now to be using to power a sportbike. At 40-50k, the projected price, the Roehr is fighting an uphill battle. It might bring competitive hp 3's to the table, but weight , styling - which is subjective, and suspension development are gonna more than likely work against it. Very unfortunate. Something new and different would be more than welcome.
