- Press Release -

A new American motorcycle, conceived, designed and built in New York City, is being unveiled: the Vanguard Roadster.

Vanguard is an exciting, entirely new and wholly distinct motorcycle brand, and the Roadster model, with its forward-thinking design and pioneering features, is a product without equivalent. With the potential to bring new perspectives to the motorcycle industry, Vanguard is excited to announce the world premiere of its Roadster at the International Motorcycle Show in New York City starting December 9th.

DESIGN
Form and function have never been more complimentary. The Vanguard Roadster has a striking contemporary silhouette, the result of clear and well-informed design decisions. The lines emerged from breaking everything down into rethinking needs and solutions.

MOTORCYCLES
The Vanguard Roadster is a running prototype, with production slated for 2018. It boasts many unique features including a frameless structural engine, unitized crankcase, integrated exhaust and a tablet-size digital dashboard with rear-view camera. The Roadster is the first of 3 motorcycles built on a common powertrain platform that will cover all riding positions: Roadster, Cruiser and Racer.

PRODUCTION
Vanguard motorcycles will be assembled in New York City at the Brooklyn Navy Yard. The modular construction, based on large sub-assemblies, revisits traditional manufacturing methods. Combined with worldwide sourcing and the support of key motorcycle vendors, Vanguard will deliver exceptional value and quality.

SALES
Starting at $29,995, a premium price within reach, the Vanguard Roadster is a strong alternative to current premium motorcycles. Selected dealers are signing up to be the ambassadors of this game-changing brand.

PEOPLE
Vanguard is led by renowned designer Edward Jacobs and serial entrepreneur Francois-Xavier Terny. Together they form a dynamic team of passion and vision.

With a fresh perspective and unique approach, Vanguard promises to be a premium motorcycle brand of revolutionary effect.
