Keanu Reeves makes the Arch Motorcycles KRGT 1 superbikes with Gard Hollinger. Gard Hollinger is a valued designer in the world of motorcycles. He is even a long time friend of Reeves. The motorcycles worth US$78,000 are based on a prototype that was built for Keanu Reeves. Hollinger built it some years ago. Each of the V twin-engine bikes of 2032cc are specially made in Hawthorne, California. It is to be noted that Keanu Reeves learned to ride when he was an adult. He has already covered several kilometers on the backs of various motorcycles. These includes Suzukis, Nortons, Kawasaki KZ 900, Moto Guzzi racer, 1974 BMW 750 and 1984 Harley Shovelhead. Furthermore, these bikes are from Keanu Reeves’ personal collection.
Hollinger was first approached by Keanu Reeves in the year 2007. He requested Hollinger to change his Harley with a sissy bar. However, Hollinger refused to do so. Nonetheless, Hollinger said that it was not his thing. That was when they started conversing about creating a completely new bike. The bike would seem cruise and beautiful. It would be a bright silver prototype. This would include a gas trunk curved like Bugatti’s fender along with thick tires. After Hollinger finished the bike, Reeves simply loved. He loved the bike so much that he wanted more of it. Finally, he intended to start a motorcycle company too.
Keanu Reeves and Gard Hollinger collaboration brings fruitful result
Keanu Reeves could not convince Hollinger initially. But, Reeves did not take “no” for an answer. Keanu Reeves kept on asking Hollinger for another three times. Finally, after long brainstorming sessions Reeves managed to convince Hollinger for this. The Arch motorcycles are unique and it is simple to identify it on roads. The motorcycles are rounded at the front. They have a dip in the middle and curves at again at the back.
The motorcycles have single headlight and low, short, handlebars. Furthermore, the Michelin tire at the back is fatter than the front. Purchasing a KRGT 1 needs several sessions of measurements. Hollinger will fit the pedals, handlebars and the seat angle. These will be fitted to the exact size of the buyer. Addition to this, the arch suspension is adjustable as well. You can adjusted it according to the preference and rising styles. The delivery time takes about 90 days after the choice is over.
