Roehr Motorcycles: V-Roehr 1250SC to roll out by mid-2008

With its 180bhp supercharged v-twin, the V-Roehr 1250SC could give GSX-Rs something to think about!

We first wrote about the all-American V-Roehr sportsbike, back in March this year. Well, with Roehr Motorcycles LLC having gotten into a financial partnership, which will provide them with working capital, the V-Roehr is closer to becoming production reality. And instead of the 1130cc, 120bhp Harley v-twin which the bike was supposed to be fitted with, the production V-Roehr has been upgraded to a 1250cc Harley V-twin, which will be fitted with a Rotrex supercharger, pushing power output up to 180bhp!

In keeping with its ‘superbike’ positioning, the V-Roehr 1250SC will also be fitted with high-spec running gear – Ohlins suspension, Marchesini alloy wheels, Brembo brakes with radial-mount callipers at the front, and carbonfibre bodywork. A company press release says that the ‘V-Roehr 1250SC promises to deliver quality and performance in a truly modern, exclusive and exhilarating American thoroughbred.’ And that, of course, will come for a significant price – US$45,000. Visit the Roehr website for more details.
