Vanguard Moto Inc.
Designed, engineered and built in New York City, Vanguard is an entirely new and distinct motorcycle brand.
With an advanced take on design and a unique approach to engineering, manufacturing and sales, Vanguard is redefining the premium motorcycle.
Our first release, the Roadster, is a contemporary motorcycle priced to bring true value to the rider.
Design We created our own language, staying away from the ideas of heritage and nostalgia, using utilitarian, modular and functionalist approaches...
Utilitarian, as we place the usefulness or practicality before subjective attractiveness.
Modular, as we combine functions in a way that simplifies manufacturing and servicing.
Functionalist, as we strive to create parts and sub-assemblies not only functioning well together but also bringing a visual and technical balance.
Engineering We combine design and engineering, creating ready-to-manufacture parts and components directly within our CAD software environment...
Structural engine with a frameless design, the rotating tank allowing full mechanical access for an "under the hood" experience, and a fully digital dashboard including a rear view camera.
High-volume production processes will be used for our smaller batch manufacturing - allowing us to reach our cost targets and ensure production quality and compliance.
Innovation Innovation is driven by necessity - as we're challenging and re-thinking motorcycle parts, components and technical functions...
A unitized crankcase with an integrated exhaust system, an encapsulated rear suspension and a shaft drive, combining several functions usually separated and using shielding materials from the architecture and aerospace worlds.
We are also introducing a modular approach to manufacturing that reduces mounting time, quality issues and allows us to build three different models with a common platform.
