Johnny Pag Motorcycles is putting a larger engine in their motorcycles and making some slight lineup changes.
Johnny Pag Motorcycles sold four different Chinese-made motorcycles in Canada in 2009 and 2010, the custom-styled Spyder, Barhog, and ProStreet, along with the FX3 naked bike. But a new company is handling distribution in western Canada, and they’re only bringing two of those bikes in this year, the Spyder and the Barhog,
Those bikes are getting a decent power boost, though. Johnny Pag’s 2010 lineup was powered by a 270cc parallel twin, often thought to be derived from the venerable Honda Rebel engine. We don’t know if that’s the truth, but we do know that the Johnny Pag motor is being upped to a 320cc capacity this year. That may not sound like much to someone used to riding liter bikes or Big Twins, but for a small machine like the Pag bikes, that’s a significant boost.
Pricing will remain the same on Johnny Pag bikes this year in Canada.
Sven Bernard of Fort McMurray’s W.C. Distributing says his company is also working on importing some new models from Johnny Pag, now that they have taken over the brand’s distribution in Western Canada. He says they’re working on getting Transport Canada approval on a 700cc V-twin that may be available at the year’s end, and there’s rumours that the factory is working on a 450cc V-twin for the 2013 season.
