The Big Bear Choppers Redemption is the newest member of the BBC family. The motorcycle features a fresh design language, a capable engine and a completely new fuel tank. Other features that are worthy of being mentioned include the 21" front wheel, 250mm rear tire, custom handlebars and the Dual Disc Springer.

The motorcycle is propelled by a polished V111 engine which features electronic fuel injection and delivers a maximum output of 115.8 bhp and 122.8 lb/ft of torque. The engine’s power is sent to the ground through a 6-speed overdrive transmission especially designed and manufactured to be able to handle the engine’s power.

As far as the electrical department is concerned, BBC teamed up with Wire-Plus, to design the entire electrical part. BBC also used high-end brand name electrical components like the Cycle Electric charging system and the Dynatech ignition.

Option #1 BBC-S&S V111™ Carb Evolution

Reliability, power and comfort... the best of all worlds. And when we say reliability, we not only mean the life of the engine, but the life of motorcycle and everything that’s bolted to it. Branded as V111™,’ this internally reformed 111 cubic inch engine boasts a healthy 122.8 lbs. of torque at the crank. With a configuration of a 4 1/8” bore and 4 1/8” stroke, proprietary compression ratios, redesigned cam timing, and reciprocating weights all result in an incredibly smooth running engine while meeting all the strict legal requirements. While looking like any other S&S Super Sidewinder engine from the outside, the essence of this new engine is the low vibration. High engine vibration is an enemy to both the rider and the motorcycle. The effects of high engine vibration may cause premature rider fatigue as well. Eliminate engine vibration and you will eliminate potential problems.

Option #2 BBC-S&S V111™ EFI Evolution

Between the EFI and the carbureted V111™, there isn’t going to be much of a difference in performance, provided you maintain constant ambient conditions (humidity, temperature, elevation, etc.). This is where the beauty of the closed-loop EFI system comes into play. The system is continuously monitoring the engine, and tuning itself to optimize performance for that given scenario or environment. So, while you might not be able to notice power difference between the EFI and a carbureted engine, once you take that bike up the mountain, or get a day that’s significantly hotter than the day it was tuned, that EFI engine will easily outperform the carbureted engine (unless you want to take a supply of different jets with you on the ride).

Transmission

This is the original 6-speed design that revolutionized the American V-Twin industry. Yet, it’s still the best overdrive 6-speed built to this day ...hands down. This Detroit built tranny is designed and manufactured to comfortably handle the power from our engines while looking good behind it.

Drivetrain

Keeping with the mindset of making form and function coexisting, this newly designed proprietary primary is built tough and reliable along with a very sleek, new generation styled aesthetics with a cool BBC branded inspection cover. This primary drive is approximately 200% stronger than most other manufacturer’s primaries with its machined forged aluminum inner and outer cases. The dense aluminum material makes for a unit that does not flex under heavy torque, and absorbs most engine vibration. Another great attribute that sets this primary drive ahead of the curve is the triple seal design on the main shaft, as opposed to an industry standard single seal, insuring virtually no leaks. The starter motor shaft accessory plate is removable for an easy starter change-out. The internals utilize an easy-to-replace standard type clutch basket and a compensating sprocket for a smooth power transfer.

Electrical

We teamed up with Wire-Plus, the industry’s leader in motorcycle electronics, to design a wiring harness with no compromises. Combine this harness with the high-end brand name electrical components like the Cycle Electric charging system and the Dynatech ignition, and we’re sure your seat time will be long. You won’t be on the side of the road kicking rocks.

Sheetmetal

Like our frames, our tanks and fenders are designed and manufactured in-house. We produce the sheetmetal with the frame as a unit, then gets ’mock-up’ before we hand it over to our painters or ship it out to the unassembled kit customers. We use heavy duty 12 gauge steel for our fenders and 14 gauge steel for the tanks. All tanks are pressure tested and the fenders are computer cut. We guarantee and warranty any leaks from the tanks and cracks in the fenders for your lifetime.
