Ronin 47 Motorcycle

Well here’s something that will get you noticed: Ronin Motor Works’ stunning new superbike, Ronin 47 ($38,000). The futuristic-meets-industrial design evokes images of both Batman and The Matrix, but not so much the Keanu Reeves movie that almost no one saw, 47 Ronin.

The 47 here refers to the number of motorcycles being made, and the bike is based on the Buell 1125 that went out of production in 2010. Colorado-based Magpul Industries is behind the production, and seeing as they make composite high-tech firearms, it’s fitting that they’ve used their expertise with the Rotax engine that’s known for generating more heat than Heat Miser. The Showa forks have been traded out for a cast aluminum alloy linkage fork that makes for an aggressive, lean-forward look. There’s custom hydraulic radial master cylinders and adjustable levers for the brake and clutch, as well as a Penske monoshock that lets the rider adjust for variable weight and road conditions. The Ronin 47 is also some 50 pounds lighter than the 1125.
