2011 Saxon Motorcycle Whip Base

Intro

Saxon is an American producer of custom motorcycles, and they are especially well-known for the Saxon Whip. Despite American production, they are intended to bring choppers to the European market. Each Saxon Whip represents a high level of sophistication, reliability, and comfort. Anyone looking for a real hard-tail, high-necked chopper will appreciate the 2011 Saxon Motorcycle Whip at first glance. It features handmade construction with the finest in modern technologies. It features a 1573-cc, V-Twin, four-stroke, two-cylinder engine that produces plenty of power. The design is gorgeous with a huge array of color options and very shiny chrome. The fuel capacity for the gas tank is 3.5 gallons, and the estimated fuel economy is around 50 miles per gallon. It is air-cooled, and it comes equipped with a six-speed, manual transmission. The weight of the 2011 Saxon Motorcycle Whip is 430 pounds.

The 2011 Saxon Motorcycle Whip features digital instrumentation, a speedometer, and a tachometer. The frame is built of steel, and a kickstand is the standard method of propping it up while in park. Front and rear brakes are hydraulic disc brakes, and there are options to convert the engine for California's emissions and smog requirements. The price-point is extremely low for a custom-built motorcycle, and it comes with a two-year warranty for the engine, transmission, and several other parts. While the Saxon Whip looks great on paper, consumer reports show another story. Not only are Saxon Motorcycles becoming less reputable in the states, but there are even fewer dealerships than there were just a few years ago. The two-year warranty sounds nice, but it is often not upheld. A long list of problems from users includes a faulty starter, poorly acting transmission, and bodywork that don’t meet standards. Some builds have issues with the coils breaking every few hundred miles. All this said, these are custom built bikes, and each one can have its own array of problems if not properly manufactured. So the small price for a custom made bike is highly overshadowed by the large amount of issues that come with this brand.

Despite the hands-on attention, the Saxon does poorly when actually put to the test. Overall, the ride may be excellent when working correctly, but more often than not, there is some problem waiting to jump out.
