The founders of Ronin Motor Works have always respected the Harley-Davidson Buell brand. The Buell featured an 1125 series liquid-cooled engine. Positioned to take the industry head-on. They hid all of its most interesting technology by a typical plastic body. Because of this the bike looked run of the mill, never took off and was eliminated in 2009.
After acquiring two of the 1125Rs, they created the first concept called the Magpul Ronin. Ronin comes from the Japanese word for a Samurai who lost his master. Representing how Buell motorcycles will continue on even after the end of the company. And based on the story from Japanese folklore, 47 Ronin, they decided to build 47 of the concept bikes.
The result is the Ronin 47 Motorcycle ($38K) series of bikes. They match the rawness of the concept but are much more refined. They’re releasing the bikes in multiple series that feature a predetermined color scheme. The first 12 bikes come in the classic black & gray of the original concept bike. F
