Keanu Reaves company unveils its first motorcycle the KRGT-1

We all know that in Hollywood we have quite a few actors who are crazy about motorcycles. Keanu Reeves is definitely one of them. The movie star co-founded Arch Motorcycle Co. with designer and engineer Gard Hollinger back in 2007, and 7 years later, the company is all set to launch their first production motorcycle. Dubbed the Arch KRGT-1, the motorcycle is based on a concept unveiled in 2012. The KRGT-1 has been developed with industry veterans S&S Cycle and Baker Drivetrain and combines both classic design using state-of-the-art manufacturing techniques. The chopper-inspired sports naked is powered by a beastly 2-litre S&S v-twin engine which is paired to a six-speed Baker Drivetrain transmission.

The model has a chassis in aluminum and steel, BST wheels in ultralight carbon fiber, and Ohlins suspension. The starting price of the Arch KRGT-1 has been set at $78,000 and it can be directly purchased from the company’s website.
