Mac Motorcycles - The Sabre Price: POA
Last Updated On: 05/10/2018
The Mac Motorcycles Sabre is a new, from the ground up, lightweight, single cylinder motorbike with a highly individual appearance. The aim was to produce a motorbike with a Harley presence, flat tracker manners and Ducati handling, with nothing surplus to requirements.
It is powered by a 600cc 4 stroke, liquid-cooled engine, built by SWM in Italy, which produces 52bhp in standard spec. It drives the chain driven motorbike through a 6-speed gearbox. Top speed will be around 100mph (161km/h).
The steel tubular backbone and cradle frame, with a triangulated swing-arm are unique to Mac and have been designed and engineered by the company. The 12 litre fuel tank is made from 5083 aluminium. Mudguards, seat-base and hump are all made from ABS plastic but, if the customer wants to personalise their Mac motorcycle, they can also have pressed alloy versions. These can be wet-painted in almost any colour or polished and lacquered for a more classic look.
Suspension comes from a pair of Fastace's 47mm upside down forks fitted with Nitron R1 shock absorbers as standard. The front brake uses a Brembo radial caliper, gripping a 320mm floating disc, fed by a Brembo master cylinder. The rear brake also uses a Brembo caliper, gripping a 240mm disc, again fed by a Brembo master cylinder.
The exhaust is British-made, to Mac's exact design. The entire system is fabricated from stainless steel and designed to meet current noise requirements whilst retaining the distinctive ‘soundtrack’ of a big single. Baffles are interchangeable for track use.
The seat height is 760mm and the wheelbase is 1,430mm.
