Magpul Ronin 1200 ‘Ronin Deployed’ By ICON

In October of 2009, Harley-Davidson shuttered the Buell Motorcycle Company – originally founded by ex-Harley engineer Erik Buell – to combat their rapidly plummeting profits, much to the chagrin of the brand’s namesake and fans of his work. From the ashes arose the Magpul Ronin Project – an extremely limited undertaking involving the acquisition and reimagining of 47 Buell 1125 bikes.

In case you’re wondering: yes, “Magpul” refers to the firearm company – who partnered with several ex-Buell engineers following the dissolution of the brand to rebuild these spectacular liquid-cooled-engine bikes in a manner more befitting of their capabilities. This particular bike was picked up and re-styled by ICON in a “Deployed Grey” paint scheme matching their gear line of the same name. Still, beneath the facade, it features a custom monoshock linkage suspension system, front-mounted radiator, unitized handlebar assembly, ram air intake, cast aluminum tail section, and high-flow exhaust system like its brethren. Unfortunately, ICON is keeping this bad boy to themselves – so, if you want one, you’ll have to seek out one of the other 46.
