The essence of the ABC motorcycle is simplicity. Its two cylinder engine, horizontally opposed, was a breakthrough design in its time. We want to keep this simplicity and innovative approach in our new range. We have a three cylinder two stroke and a V twin four stroke engine which are designed and manufactured by us. These will form the heart of the new models.
We plan to keep the original vintage look but with an updated frame design, brakes, suspension, electrics and drive train. The bikes will be fully modern in the way they ride and perform but will have the charm and looks of a vintage motorcycle. The gearing of the bike will be aimed squarely at easy cruising rather than out and out performance.
We feel that there is a growing market for a motorcycle that reflects the gentle nature of the classic era. Where you can enjoy the bike and the ride without the urge to race from corner to corner. What better way to do this than on a true English marque.
We will announce the new models in due course as there is a lot of design and development to work through first.
If anyone out there has an original ABC motorcycle we would be very interested in talking to you about the bike and your time with it. We would like to include riders experiences and stories on our website. If there is enough interest we could run a monthly “riders page” to showcase these.
