They say if you want something done right, then you should do it yourself, and this was the ethos behind the inception of Clews Competition Machines in 1971. Trials rider Alan Clews was unsatisfied with the available off-road motorcycle options on the market, so when BSA’s competition division closed, Clews bought out all of the operation’s works parts and started building his own race bikes. And it’s this early spirit of innovation that CCM is now celebrating with the debut of the “Maverick.”
The latest addition to the boutique brand’s Spitfire range, the Maverick features the lineup’s standard artisan hand-TIG-welded tubular chassis and BMW-developed liquid-cooled 600cc single which makes 50hp and 37ft-lbs of torque. Weighing just 330lbs, the Maverick is similar to the Spitfire Scrambler, though features numerous tweaks such as a stacked brushed stainless steel high-mount exhaust setup, upgraded Magura and Oberon clutch and brake systems, a Semi-Aniline Chestnut hide ribbed saddle, and Haan Racing wheels shod in Mitas E7+ Dual Sport rubber. The Maverick is also offered with a host of optional upgrade packages and parts, such as a carbon fiber kit or Ohlins suspension and Brembo brakes upgrades. Offered in green or black, the CCM Maverick is available now with pricing set at approximately $14,200.
