Actor Keanu Reeves, famous for his role as Neo in the Matrix trilogy, is known to be a bike aficionado along with being extremely charitable. He is now extending his love for motorcycles by putting the KRGT-1, a bike produced by his firm Arch Motorcycle Company, on sale. However, anyone who would want this bike will have to order and make an initial deposit of US $12,000 for reservation. Albeit a unique motorcycle, the KRGT-1 will set back users a good US $78,000.

The most unique aspect about KRGT-1 is that anyone who orders the bike can get it customised according to his/her suitability and liking. This bike will come fitted with a colossal S&S Cycle T124 twin cam V-twin engine, which has a displacement of 2032 cc and is designed specifically for Arch Motorcycles.

Though the KRGT-1 has a minimalistic design, it looks quite exceptional and scores pretty high on the style quotient. This bike features an Öhlins suspension system at the front along with an adjustable mono shock from Race Tech at the rear. Also, wheels of the KRGT-1 are made from ultralight carbon fibre, which is quite impressive. The Arch Proprietary six-speed Baker transmission system has a high torque main-shaft and the engine delivers maximum power of 121 BHP along with peak torque of 165 Nm. KRGT-1 has a digital display system from MotoGadget.

The KR GT-1 Prototype is inspired from the 2005 Harley-Davidson Dyna Wide Glide owned by Keanu Reeves. However, reports suggest that it has taken a lot of hard work from co-founder Gard Hollinger to create the entire framework for the new bike, which includes rear cowling, exhaust system and fuel tank. Experts believe that despite the bike’s high price, it has plenty of merits to make it an exceptional vehicle. Sources claim that orders for the KRGT-1 can now be placed in the United States of America and will be manufactured Arch Motorcycles.
