Big Dog Motorcycles is unveiling a lower price model based on its popular chopper-style platform.
With production planned for May, the new model, called the Big Dog Chopper, will provide a Big Dog experience with an MSRP in the $21,000 range.
Sheldon Coleman, founder and CEO of Big Dog Motorcycles, made the announcement at the recently held Dealer Expo in Indianapolis. “We are excited to participate in this price range with an uncompromised motorcycle of this caliber,” Coleman said in a press release.
The lower price-point offering will include a 111 cubic inch S&S engine and a six-speed transmission. In addition, components include chrome handlebar controls, a new handlebar array, chrome forward controls, a new multifunction speedometer, machined aluminum wheels, a new rear suspension, a 42-degree rake, a beefy 250mm rear tire and a full line of passenger-friendly accessories.
“This is a landmark achievement for our company,” Coleman said. “Thanks to the cooperation with our dedicated suppliers and the hard work of our engineering experts, we have been able to provide classic Big Dog performance and style to a broader range of consumers.”
