Levi’s is a name that is synonymous with jeans and a line of clothing, but did you know that there is also a company from the UK called Levis motorcycles that produces a two-wheeler since 1911?
Their motorcycles dominated the roads for many years, but after World War II, the company vanished for nearly 70 years until Phil Bevan bought the name and decided to re-launch this company along with Steve Kirk. Two auto designers had a dream to revive the British motorcycle brand.
They have been working for nearly seven months on this fantastic V6 Café Racer, and the revolutionary bike is powered by the engine of one of their cars. So Levis is ready to make a great return to the world of motorcycles, and this is just the beginning.
The heart of the Café Racer is the V6 engine, a volume of 1,200 cubic meters, set longitudinally in the frame as Moto Guzzi motorcycles. According to Levis, the development of this unit goes according to plan, and it is expected that there will be over 120 hp available.
In addition to engine development, Levis also works on its new frame, made of stainless steel, and the first production model is ready to win the streets in March 2019.
Until then, this concept will be presented at Salon Prive at the Blenheim Palace in late August and at the Goodwood Revival Festival in September. In addition to this Café Racer, Levis also plans four more models based on this flexible stainless steel frame. It is expected that prices for one of these beauties will exceed £100,000.
