Keanu Reeves, apart from an A-list actor, is also a true rev-head with a thriving passion for both cars and motorcycles – and he’ gone one better than just buying and driving them.
With his longtime friend Gard Hollinger, Reeves is the brain behind a company based out of California dubbed Arch Motorcycles. The firm produces the KRGT-1 that has a 2,032 cc engine and a starting price of $93,000.
Reeves first thought about starting a motorcycle company when he and Hollinger planned to customize his Harley Davidson in 2007. Ideas flowed and the two decided against modifying the Harley and instead made an entirely new bike designed to thrill, be perfect for cruising and with road presence unlike anything else.
After years of hard work, the duo now run a successful business and since 2014, have sold a handful of KRGT-1s. In the coming years, they plan on producing around 30 bikes annually, keen to meet demand while still maintaining the exclusivity of their creations.
The bikes are made from hand, use over 200 individual parts and can be completely customized to suit the owner, just like the finest exotic cars. Generally, the 2.0-liter engine delivers a touch over 120 hp and is mated to a six-speed transmission. Exotic materials like carbon fiber make up the wheels while the entire body is handcrafted from aluminum.
