We sometimes wonder if Keanu Reeves is actually acting out his real life in his movies and not taking his movie life back home… still with us? I mean if you’ve seen his training videos for the John Wick franchise, you almost wonder if he’s an assassin turned movie start and not the other way around. This line gets blurred that much more with his latest venture, Arch Motorcycles. I mean, does Reeves just walk around oozing cool? Probably.
Anyway, Reeves rant aside… let’s talk about the Method 143 shall we. Aside from the jaw-dropping looks there’s some pretty phenomenal stuff going on with this one. Stuff like the first production motorcycle featuring a carbon fiber mono-cell chassis. This, is music to our ears. Why? Because it’s a page ripped off of the good old McLaren book. McLaren Automotive has been one of the biggest pioneers of carbon fiber mono-cell chassis’ in racing and automotive. And, unsurprisingly, it works sensationally well. Chassis rigidity goes up, handling gets better, and the car gets lighter. We presume the same applies when used on two wheels instead of four.
Horsepower figures aren’t published but the S&S Cycle T143 engine produces around 160 Horsepower in other applications so we’re sure the power is plenty. Unfortunately however the Method 143 will be limited to 23 units so… if you haven’t picked one up already, you’ll probably have a rough time picking one up at this point.
