Roehr 1250sc: The supercharged, 180bhp, made-in-America sportsbike is ready!

With a 180bhp supercharged engine, the Roehr 1250sc will certainly be the fastest, most powerful sportsbike made in the US!

Roehr Motorcycles have announced the completion of the pre-production Roehr 1250sc, and production of the bike is expected to begin shortly. Powered by a supercharged version of Harley-Davidson’s 1250cc, liquid-cooled, 8-valve, DOHC, 60-degree v-twin, the Roehr 1250sc packs all of 180 horsepower, making it the fastest, most powerful sportsbike built in America.

The bike is fitted with quality components like Ohlins suspension, 17-inch, 10-spoke Marchesini wheels, Brembo brakes, an Akropovic exhaust system and 120/70 (front) and 190/50 (rear) Pirelli tyres. The chassis is Roehr’s chrome-molybdenum composite beam frame, which is said to be stiff and light, and provides an excellent mix of quick steering and high-speed stability. The bike weighs 192 kilos dry.

The Roehr 1250sc will be available in limited numbers, and prices will soon be announced. Those who want to pre-order their machine, or explore dealership opportunities, visit the Roehr website here.
