The Ecosse Moto Works Founder’s Edition…
Denver’s Ecosse Moto Works builds precision-crated power cruisers using exotic components, like machined-from-billet-aluminum triple clamps, titanium exhaust, and carbon-fibre wheels and bodywork. Its most recent creation, the Founder’s Edition Titanium, features a 2.1-liter V-twin engine producing 175 horsepower, with a truck-like 160 foot-pounds of torque atop a titanium chassis. While most bikes powered by Harley-Davidson Big Twin–inspired engines are saddled with a cumbersome primary drive and transmission, Ecosse’s bikes use a compact custom case that brings the transmission four inches closer to the engine, leaving room for a longer rear swingarm and allowing for better suspension compliance and traction. The Founder’s Edition Titanium could be one of the world’s most exclusive bikes. This model truly lives up to Ecosse’s motto: sculptural industrial motorcycles. ■
