Keanu Reeves' KRGT-1 Motorcycle Revealed

Written By:

Hollywood star, Keanu Reeves' love for motorcycles has pushed him to modify motorcycles. His attempt failed miserably, but that did not stop him from trying again.

He walked up to Gard Hollinger, a very well known chopper builder, had a word with him and finally started a company called the Arch Motorcycle Company. Their hard work paid off and the first of their motorcycle designs is ready, called the KRGT-1.

Priced at USD 78,000, it is quite expensive. But let's take a look at what makes the bike so pricey and a closer look at the details of the KRGT-1.

The story continues in the next slide.

The KRGT-1, is the latest creation from the Hollywood movie star, Keanu Reeves and Gard Hollinger's company called the Arch Motorcycle Company.

534 pounds of billet aluminum, 66 hours of labour, customised finishing, and loads of machining. The bike features two 9 pound fuel cells, that are then joined to make the fuel tank of the KRGT-1.

The motorcycle has all it takes to be a cruiser from the front. It has forward placed footpegs for long rides, making the rider feel like the king of the road. Moving towards the rear, it has swept up exhausts, which hints at loads of performance and a love for being pushed.

Speaking about performance, powering the KRGT-1 is a massive 2032cc, V-Twin motor, that produces 122 horsepower. That is more than sufficient power to eat away kilometres on the highway.

The front forks are fully adjustable Ohlins units, and they have developed the Arch Down Draft Induction System, positioning it between the aluminum fuel cells, to give the KRGT-1 a sleek look. The bar-end-mounted mirrors are like the cherry on the cake, adding to the motorcycle's looks.

The rear end of the motorcycle has a sleek, hidden away tail lamp, and has a fat rear tyre to help with comfort on the road. The shock by Race Tech is fully adjustable, the wheels are made of light carbon fiber and the brakes are twin ISR 6-piston monobloc calipers.

Overall, this motorcycle is made to be used and used hard unlike many show bikes that just shout "Look at me" rather than being ridden.
