NEW IMPERIAL 400 : MODEL 1

Ever wondered why you don't mess with a Mutt?.. because the Mutts have a big brother. The New Imperial 400 Model 1.

A classic British Marque, founded in Birmingham, England in 1912, now part of the Mutt family and back in Birmingham New Imperial is Mutt’s classic older sibling.

Our 400cc  is a true thumper in every sense, the single cylinder twinport 400cc engine is like riding a bass drum with enough torque to ride up a vertical wall.

As with all our Mutts we offer a classic version under our New Imperial moniker and of course there’ll be a down right dirty, thump in the neck industrial Mutt version coming very soon.

 

 

  

A MODERN CLASSIC

The bike you are looking at here is our classic version but this ain't no pottering around Grandad bike, like all our bikes we gave it a Mutt twist with a bit of U.S spec Desert Racer style for that aggressive vintage racer look.

 

  

BRITISH LINES

With a tubular twin shock frame, round swingarm and telescopic forks  the 400 has classic British lines, add a 19" front wheel and an 18" rear wheel shod in deep tread vintage tread pattern rubber and you have a good recipe for a really stylish retro machine.

 

Wide bars, Smiths style speedo, Lucas rear light and Beston grips all help you feel like you are astride a true 1960's machine but of course this bike all the mod cons of any other modern bike on the market... but you get a kickstart as well as an electric start, pretty cool eh?

And the down and dirty version? Keep watching this space..

This model is now sold out. A new version will be announced in Spring 2017.
