Does your current motorcycle leave you wishing for more horsepower? If you’ve got an insatiable need, need for speed, then maybe the Hesketh Valiant SC is what you’re looking for.
Built in the UK around a supercharged S&S X-Wedge engine (2100 cc V-twin, with six-speed Baker transmission), the Valiant SC is a 2018 model, expected to cost £50,000 when it hits the market. That’s a lot more than even the Kawasaki H2R, which everyone reckoned was uber-pricey when it hit the market as the first factory supercharged motorcycle in years.
Dry weight for the Valiant SC is a rather porky 239 kg. However, that mass should still move 0-60 rather quickly, since it’s rated for 210 hp at 5,500 rpm and 217 ft-lb of torque at 3,000 rpm.
