It’s been a long time coming but it looks like the Metric Revolution motorcycle build off TV series has found a home on ESPN2. The actual build offs have been completed and the bikes have been showing up in some motorcycle magazines and on a few web sites but the whole TV series that everyone has been waiting for was a bit up in the air.
The show will debut in the second quarter of 2007 and will be a part of the new ESPN2 Garage programming block, announced last week at SEMA, which will offer coverage of automotive, motorcycle and motorsports topics giving a bit more competition to the cable channels that cover those topics now.
Whether your taste in motorcycles leans toward the sport bike or cruiser segment, you should see some really interesting customs on the show and even when the bikes don’t reflect your personal style, the build quality, from what we’ve seen so far, seems to be high. I look forward to the series.
