Kalup Salutes The New Ronin47
We’re inspired and excited by the new Ronin47 – what a futuristic ride.
The founders of Ronin Motor Works have always respected the Buell® motorcycle philosophy–challenging the Status Quo (see the “Book of Buell”)–and with the release of the 1125 series with a liquid-cooled engine, it looked like the beginning of interesting times in the motorcycle world.
Taken from the Japanese word for a Samurai who lost his master, the name “Ronin” was chosen to signify Buell® motorcycles that will continue on after the demise of the company. The Ronin concept featured a custom monoshock linkage suspension system, front-mounted radiator, unitized handlebar assembly, new ram air intake, cast aluminum tail section, and high-flow exhaust system. The features enhanced the bike’s ride while also decreasing the total weight by 54lbs from stock.
