Sometime coming...
« on: April 21, 2022, 06:50:22 AM »


I remember looking at a prototype for this about 3 years ago. I think the RRP has gone up about £2K since but I could be wrong. Whatever ...it's still probably (allegedly?) a better bet than other offerings from another British company based in the NW 😱 (thank you Michael for letting us know your experience!)

Looks like a sweet little thing, I’ll defo be reading up more on them. Where exactly are they based ?
They’d struggle to be any worse than CCM, certainly regarding customer service 😡

Well just been on their website to have a quick read. Based down (we’ll from here😉) in Huntington and at 7 mucho grando it’s almost half the price of a CCM spitfire 😠😠. So pitched at a reasonable price for a brand new hand built bike. Same kind of money as the trident. Certainly makes me wish I’d known about them before I chopped in the spitfire for the trident. Not that I don’t like the trident but ultimately would prefer something a tad lighter and have a single cylinder 😉.
Thanks for posting the video Ian.
Now, I do I break it to my good lady wife 🤣🤣🤣🙊🙉🙈
Cheers, Michael

Looks nice, seems to go well.  Similarly I do like the look of the Fantic Caballero

I spent some time looking for the pillion footrests but suspect that like many modern bikes its not really designed for that unfortunately.

I take it that like other Heralds it's based on a Chinese model? Nothing against them but a lot of the "British" versions are merely cosmetic.

No Ian, thankfully it is only the engine that is of Chinese origin. The rest of it is manufactured in the UK. 👍

Nice bike, but the black and grey need a little gold pinstriping, surely? Steep price and no abs or fork stanchion covers on a USD front end 😬
