Commenting on becoming Champion, , the dealer principal at said: “We didn’t want to build a handbag, fashion statement bike, it had to be something that hadn’t been done before and it had to be a rideable bike, not a show pony. One of hardest tasks was creating a machined spline assembly that extended the front sprocket to convert the final drive to a chain. THUG goes as well as it looks and we’ll definitely be riding it on the road.”

    Looks cool, but that seat and seating position don’t work too well. The feet and hands forward is like doing a jacknife.

    This bike is gorgeous! Looks like it would be hard to maneuver looking at the size and weight of it!

    What’s with these floating solo seats lately? They look like a skin tag.

    Very cool and a unique direction for a wonderful motorcycle with great bones.

    Skinny down the front tire a little. Add some mirrors “cause you wouldn’t won’t to lose your Harley buddies in the dust”! Great looking bike!
