The group is called Big Dog, and it has been around since 1994. In the years that have passed since, Big Dog managed to sell 30,000 of its bikes, a number most custom garages can only dream about.
Big Dog’s secret is simple: make a custom frame, stick a big engine in there, offer a lot of personalization options, and then repeat the whole thing all over again.
There are currently 4 bike models in Big Dog’s portfolio, and as part of our Two-Wheeler month coverage we’ll talk about them all over the coming days (we’ve already said a thing or two about the K9).
This time, we’re here to admire the Coyote, the motorcycle with the highest power-to-weight ratio in Big Dog’s portfolio.
Using a custom frame and the largest engine ever fitted by the Wichita, Kansas-based shop inside it, the 124ci (2.0-liter) S&S SuperSidewinder V-Twin, Big Dog managed to create one of the best looking custom motorcycles currently to be found anywhere. And it is selling it for a price that’s well within the financial limits of most Americans: $28,995.
At that price, the bike is the cheapest of the four Big Dogs, and that was possible because the bike is not a unique machine, but part of a longer series-production run, albeit a limited one.
