Think of an American-made sportsbike, and most folks think of Buell. But we’d rather think of Illinois-based Roehr: the delicious and very new 1250sc packs a Harley V-Rod twin, supercharged to give an extraordinary 180 bhp. Walter Roehrich’s design oozes class, and the components are top-notch too. Forged aluminum Marchesini wheels keep the rubber on the road, and the bike tips the scales at just 196kg. A nice touch: a matching helmet comes as standard with every new Roehr motorcycle.
