Hesketh Motorcycles, in under the ownership of Paul Sleeman, has released details and an image of its new Hesketh 24. The 2014 Hesketh 24 will be the Company’s first new bike since the V1000 in 1983.
The new Hesketh 24 is a sports motorcycle powered by a massive 1950cc, 56 degree, V-Twin engine that produces 118Hp. The engine is linked to a 6 speed transmission. The 2014 Hesketh 24 has a 6-gallon fuel tank mounted below its engine. Other features include Brock’s Performance BST carbon fiber wheels (19×120 front and 19×180 rear), a full stainless steel 2 into 1 into 3 exhaust, Beringer brakes, and Ohlins suspension.
Visually, the 2014 Hesketh 24’s red, white and blue schemes was inspired by James Hunt’s 1975’s F1 Grand Prix winning “24” car.
Production of the 2014 Hesketh 24 is limited to 24 units only, but the Company is currently developing other new models including a two-seat version of the 24.
The 2014 Hesketh 24 will be available rom February 2014. No word on pricing.
