We were so busy running around EICMA making silver screen magic with our own videos, we didn’t even have time to stop by actual movie star Keanu Reeves’ Arch Motorcycles display. Which is a damn shame, because you know that’s where all the cool people were and we could’ve maybe discussed our craft. It’s also a shame because Arch had two new models on display.

 

The Method 143, in the lead photo and here, uses a carbon fiber “mono-cell chassis” and a “layering design concept” – along with plenty of  leather, carbon fiber and artfully crafted CNC machined aluminum. Main attractions include:

  • 143 cubic inch, 2343cc engine
  • ARCH designed, Suter Industries manufactured CNC machined aluminum single-sided swingarm with carbon fiber cover.
  • CNC machined aluminum bodywork with integrated layered leather seat
  • ARCH designed mobile phone dash display
  • Proprietary Öhlins FGRT series front fork with carbon fiber air-foil
  • MotoGP inspired, full titanium/carbon fiber exhaust system
  • ARCH designed BST carbon fiber turbine wheels

The Method 143’s release date and price have yet to be announced, but you better get your order in ASAP as production will be limited to 23 units.

——————————————————————————————————————

The 1S, below, is an evolution of Arch’s original KRGT-1. In addition to having a new, single-sided swingarm, this one enforces a more aggressive riding position “while still keeping hold of its performance cruiser formulation.”

 

There’s plenty of machined aluminum and carbon fiber here, too, on what Arch calls a race inspired motorcycle. Pricing and release date for the 1S are also as yet unavailable.

Arch 1S:

  • 124 cubic inch, 2032cc American V-Twin engine
  • CNC machined aluminum back-bone and sub-frame
  • Newly designed CNC machined aluminum and carbon fiber fuel tank with integrated fuel filler enclosure
  • Carbon fiber 7 spoke BST wheels
  • ABS optional – Euro 4 compliant
  • Production release date and pricing to be announced

Meanwhile, the original KRGT-1 returns with ergonomic enhancements to the bodywork, updated front suspension, upgraded brakes with optional ABS and EURO 4 compliance. That’s important. As part of its new partnership with Suter Industries, Arch will now market its bikes in Europe.

  • 124 cubic inch, 2032cc American V-Twin engine
  • Steel frame with CNC machined aluminum sub-frame
  • New Öhlins FGRT series fork and ARCH proprietary rear shock
  • BST carbon fiber 5 spoke wheels
  • Forward control/mid control options available
  • Custom fit and finish per client
  • Releasing early 2018

    Without a proper shank in the sole, these are worthless in a moderate crash. In a slow-speed crash, a pair of normal boots will probably do just as well.

  • Gabriel Owens

    Yeah but will they stop an evil AI hellbent on turning every living soul into a renewable energy source.

    • Born to Ride

      No, but they do know Kung Fu.

  • Starmag

    I like the one without highway pegs, it’s sort of a “Neo”-cafe with a Matrix of high-end components.

    • Born to Ride

      I’d really like to Wick up the throttle on that 143ci bike!

      • mrskullman40

        lol love the “Wick” reference

      • Mad4TheCrest

        Yes, but can it SPEED without blowing up?

  • Old MOron

    “MotoGP inspired, full titanium/carbon fiber exhaust system”
    Bwa-ha-ha! Because the MotoGP manufacturers are so forthcoming with their design secrets. What the hell is “MotoGP inspired” supposed to mean, anyway?

      Like Cal Crutchlow, it crashes when it gets near another bike.

  • Me

    Dude, where’d I park my Method 143?

  • JMDGT

    I have to admit to wanting one.

  • Campisi

    How many Wyld Stallyns does the engine produce?

  • Fabian

    These are cool bikes but how much? I suppose you’re not supposed to ask.

  • Rocky Stonepebble

    No.

  • 12er

    Little too long for my eye

  • Moto Guzzista

    This is one of those, ‘if you have to ask the price, you can’t afford it’ situations. Expect a near-six-figure price tag. As a scientist, I’ll never be able to afford one (without financing anyway), nor would I ever pay nearly that much for a motorcycle, even if I could. I’ll just continue engineering my own parts and building my own bikes for my wife and I.

  • Mad4TheCrest

    As big-twin, limited production, semi-custom’s go, these are pretty cool bikes. But damn, given the choice between one of these and a Ducati Superleggera at about the same (mostly unreachable) price, it would be the Italian every time. Superleg not a cruiser you say? Heck you could buy two or three XDiavel power cruisers for the price of one Arch. But hey, ‘Archers’ make up a pretty small and exclusive club which is likely to stay small and exclusive, so maybe that’s the draw.
