Did you know that Keanu Reeves has a motorcycle company? And not just any motorcycle company, Arch Motorcycles. Arch is headed by Reeves and his business partner, friend, and bike designer Gard Hollinger. The performance motorcycle company first made waves when it debuted the Arch Motorcycle KRGT-1 back in 2015. They are boasting their latest concept bike that is powerful and fast enough to get any assassin out of harm’s way in the blink of an eye. The company unleashed their incredible 2018 lineup in Milan, Italy during the motorcycle show called “Esposizione Internazionale Ciclo Motociclo e Accessori” or EICMA for short. The lineup included a revised KRGT-1, the all-new KRGT-1S, and the mind-blowing Method 143.
The Method 143 has a ridiculous S&S 143-cubic-inch 2343cc V-twin engine that is housed in an entirely carbon-fiber MonoCell chassis. There is an Arch-designed, but Suter Industries-manufactured CNC-machined aluminum, single-sided swingarm with carbon-fiber cover. This gorgeous bike flaunts a MotoGP-inspired full titanium and carbon-fiber exhaust system that is eye-catching. Proprietary Öhlins FGRT series front fork with carbon fiber air-foil. Arch designed BST carbon fiber turbine wheels for the Method 143 Concept. The Method 143 features an over-the-top design that intricately blends carbon fiber, machined aluminum, and leather. The Method 143 is a truly unique motorcycle that is made right here in America.
Arch is calling this beast a “concept production bike,” and only 23 of the Method 143 units will be manufactured, so you better act fast. No release date or price has been announced but it won’t come cheap at all. The KRGT-1 had a jaw-dropping price tag of $78,000 back in 2015 and the Method 143 is even more limited and more advanced so think maybe six digits for a motorcycle. But look at what a magnificent piece of engineering artwork it is. And cool enough for John Wick to drive.
