The Roehr Motorcycle Company wants to build an American sportbike. The RV1000 runs a V-twin displacing 936cc and has a long list of high tech parts. It takes guts to start a new company and go straight into the teeth of numerous manufacturers who have well developed motorcycles that will compete directly with this new model. With the number of startups that have tried and failed to bring out new bikes or resurrect old ones, it will be interesting to see what happens here. Can they succeed? Time will tell.
