New manufacturer in New York : Vanguard Motorcycles

"Vanguard was founded by two individuals previously associated with Confederate Motorcycles ..."

Roadster $30,000. Available 2018
Cruiser and racer to follow.

I saw one comment : "... modern steam punk meets Lego ..."
I like it.

Not to my taste, but for those with extra money and the need to show it here it is. I really doubt this bike will sell for the stated price if it ever does go on sale.

If you're going to spend a silly amount of money on a boutique motorcycle you might want to consider Motus. YMMV

I think the Motus is designed to be ridden. It is a serious attempt at building a 1st class Sport Touring bike.IMHO

Yeah but they're two completely different offerings, the only similarity being price.

Sure, after I win the lottery, I'd definately put this in my stable. Kinda cool.

a special paddock stand would be needed to fit that rear spindle.

that alone could push cost over the top for most.
