Henrik Fisker Designs Lauge Jensen Viking Cruiser Concept

The name Anders Kirk Johansen does not ring a bell for most of bike aficionados, at least not until Lauge Jensen comes into discussion. Johansen is the Danish designer behind this exclusive custom motorcycle brand, but this time we’re not speaking about hi. It’s the much more renowned automotive designed Henrik Fisker of BMW and Aston Martin fame, designing his first motorcycle.

Fisker himself seems exceptionally happy with the whole affair: “It’s been a dream of mine to design and create a motorcycle for many years and this is the first time I have the freedom to go and do it.“ And one doesn’t need to examine the Viking concept to agree that Fisker has solid reasons to be happy.

The Viking concept will most likely be the starting point for one of Lauge Jensen’s new production machines, as Johansen reveals that a new bike should make it into production, with a less steep price tag than the €42,800 ($59,300) the current Great Dane retails for.

At the heart of the Viking, Lauge Jensen has installed the US-made 45-degree EuroIV-compliant lump, producing 100 horsepower and still delivering an incredible 70 mpg (3.35 l/100km) economy. The 299 kg (660 lbs) bike comes with a 6-speed transmission (5 plus Overdrive) and can do north of 130 mph (210 km/h).

Lauge Jensen’s Viking also shows carbon fiber disc wheels and a streamlined, flowing line which unifies the organic fuel tank, low, sculpted, luxuriously stitched seat and the rear fender into a shape that’s both inviting and majestically sober. Stay tuned for more news of the future “production Lauge Jensen Viking”.
