Ina way, the BBC G.T.X. is a mutant: it has been created by stretching out a ProStreet frame, retaining the full classic chopper stance, but with the addition of a generous amount of GT (Grand Touring) DNA: two-up seat with pillion backrest and low-swung bagger-style side cases.
A striking fusion of power, design and luxurious features, the BBC G.T.X. brings even more to the game: the seat position has been revised, and both rider and pillion now sit in between the wheels, for an enhanced mass centralization and thus providing better steering and balance.
The dropped neck adds to the roadster-ish stance, while the innovative shroud of the down tube hides cables and provides a clean, tidy look for the G.T.X., while the auxiliary underseat fuel tank is a fantastic match for all the touring purposes one might think of: the BBC G.T.X. can hold up to 5 gallons (18.9 liters) of gas.
Well, G for grand and big, T for two-up touring, but where does the X come from, some might ask, and X-Wedge is the answer: one the Big Bear Choppers G.T.X. is powered by a no-nonsense S&S V111 v-twin in two flavors.
Customers can go for the S&S V111 EFI or the 117 X-Wedge, both mated to a 6-speed gearbox. These bikes are made with a ton of original components and if you like to delve deeper in the tech specs, following this link will surely please you.
The Big Bear Choppers G.T.X. is only available in Ready-2-Ride state, for $53,900 (€41,400) or $57,900 (€44,475), depending on whether you go for the V111 EFI or the 117 X-Wedge. And of course, the BBC G.T.X. can be delivered with belt or chain drive, custom paint and so on.
