West Midlands manufacturer Mac Motorcycles will launch its first ever prototype motorcycle at Autosport International at the Birmingham National Exhibition Centre (NEC), UK, on 12-15 January 2012.
Mac Motorcycles is an all-British manufacturing project, created from owner Ellis Pitt’s vision to develop a simple machine focused on rekindling the spirit of riding.
The firm will produce four models: Spud, Pea Shooter, Ruby and Roarer, which will be available to purchase later in 2012. However, two-wheel fans will have a first opportunity to feed back on the prototype machine at Autosport International courtesy of Birchills Automotive, the UK’s leading independent exhaust component supplier, which produced the Spud’s exhaust system.
“Over the last 15 years, motorcycles have become increasingly sophisticated and focused on the latest technology,” said Pitt. “We wanted to re-examine the relationship between motorbike and owner to create a British motorcycle that embodies simplicity, is easy to maintain and reconnects motorcyclists with the joys of riding.”
