The Matchless Model X Reloaded retro classic motorcycle has made its world premiere at the EICMA 2014 in Milan, Italy. The two wheeler marks the resurrection of the age old British two wheeler marque.
The company says that the design of the Model X Reloaded has been carefully analyzed to reenact the authentic Matchless lifestyle of yesteryear. The development of the new Model X Reloaded has resulted in 12 patents, says the firm.
The classic motorcycle is full of meticulously detailed high quality elements. The ‘castle’ type adjustable front suspension is one of the salient features of the Model X Reloaded. The rear uses twin shock absorbers.
The “lamellar” construction of the frame is claimed to offer outstanding strength and flexibility. The front disc brake employs 12-piston calipers while the rear is retarded by 6-piston calipers.
The adjustable handlebar can be raised by 25 mm while the seat can be lowered by 6 mm. There are two sets of footpegs with controls for relaxed as well as sporty riding positions.
The Model X Reloaded is powered by a 1,916 cc V-Twin engine which has an automatic fan to keep the temperature in check. The power and torque figures have not been revealed yet.
