Built to be ridden
The answer to a growing demand for Vanilla's race bikes and the inaccessibility that resulted, Speedvagen is the precise execution of a well-honed design. We've stripped away everything non-essential and innovated with what was left. Unconstrained by tradition and uncompromising in attitude – we go to 11, from fit to finish.
And speaking of the finish, though these bikes do indeed look pretty, they are built to be ridden. Hard. If your Speedvagen isn't racing, attacking, bonking, crashing, being ridden across whatever continent you may live on, if it hasn't been scratched, scuffed, marred and covered in dirt and snot, you're simply doing it wrong.
