2008 Roehr V-roehr

Posted on by

Roehr Motorcycles introduces the V-roehr 1130 superbike, a new generation of American motorcycle.

Powered by the Harley-Davidson Revolution engine, the V-roehr combines modern state-of-the-art engine technology with a race track inspired chassis design, resulting in a truly modern American sport bike.

The design goal for the new superbike was simply to produce the fastest, most powerful, and finest handling machine, using the best American engine available.

The Harley-Davidson Revolution engine was chosen due to it’s superior power potential, modern high tech design and durable construction, allowing reliable high power output potentials.

The engine is housed in a composite CrMo steel and aluminum composite beam frame, consisting of large diameter, internally ribbed steel main beams, bonded and bolted to billet machined aluminum swingarm pivot plates.

This design uses these two materials in areas of the frame in which their material characteristics are best suited, yielding a stiff, light weight structure that provides excellent feedback and rider feel.

This light, compact frame, combined with ideal chassis geometry and mass centralization provides an exceptionally responsive, stable and balanced handling dynamic.

Side mounted radiators provide a forward engine position allowing a suitable wheelbase and ideal weight distribution.

The V-roehr is also equipped with the finest chassis components available. Ohlins suspension, Brembo brakes, Marchesini wheels and beautiful bodywork in aerospace quality carbon- fiber.

Designed and constructed by company founder Walter Roehrich, the V-roehr delivers the power, performance and beauty unmatched by current American sport bikes.

Roehr Motorcycles will also offer a full line of high-performance parts and accessories, with engine kits producing up to 180hp.

Production of the first 50 units is scheduled to begin in 2008, with pricing estimated at $39,995.00.

Escrow deposits to reserve your V-roehr will be accepted starting Aug.1st 2007 for 2008 delivery.
