2012 Saxon Motorcycle Griffin Base


If you’re looking for a classic chopper style motorcycle to ride, take a look at the 2012 Saxon Motorcycle Griffin Base. This chopper style motorcycle with a 1573cc displacement air-cooled V-Twin four-stroke engine is popular among old-school bikers and new motorcycle enthusiasts alike. Saxon isn’t the biggest motorcycle company out there, but it’s definitely made a name for itself over the years, and there are a number of bikers who swear by their Saxon motorcycle.

The Saxon Motorcycle Company itself was founded in 2004 with the idea of producing custom motorcycles at an affordable price using high quality manufacturing techniques. Saxon bikes all have the rugged, classic look of old-school motorcycles, and the models come complete with some appropriately menacing names, like Firestorm, Warlord, Reaper, Villain, Whip, and of course, Griffin. The Saxon Motorcycle Company houses their production facility in Gilbert, Arizona, and does most of their production in-house, including engineering, pre-assembly, research and development, paint and powder coating, final assembly and quality control, in addition to management services like accounting, warranty and customer service.

In 2006, the Saxon Motorcycle Company partnered with Rebel Motorcycles, in order to distribute motorcycles all throughout Europe, further allowing the Saxon brand to grow and flourish. Today, Saxon has distributors not only in Europe, but in South Africa and Australia as well. Just about anywhere you can find a motorcycle; you shouldn’t be surprised if you find a Saxon.

The 2012 Saxon Motorcycle Griffin is designed to turn heads even among the riders in your biker crew. The Griffin is described by Saxon as being ""designed for riders who crave a maxed out, beefy machine."" If that describes your biking persona, you’ll definitely want to take a look at the 2012 Saxon Motorcycle Griffin.

The Griffin comes complete with 80-spoke wheels and a right side drive, six-speed transmission to go with its powerful natUral 96ci, 1573cc engine. If you really want to trick out your griffin, you can upgrade it with the Chrome or Black package, polished engine, transmission and billet wheels, and a 111ci or V100 EFI engine. Special paint jobs are also available on the 2012 Saxon Motorcycle Griffin, which include a variety of colors and intricate, eye-catching designs. Some appealing accessories for the Saxon Motorcycle Griffin include Pillon Pads to help contour your seat and provide stability for a passenger or a 2-Up Seat, a one piece seat designed to offer maximum comfort and stability for your passenger.

Riders appreciate chopper style motorcycles like the Saxon Motorcycle Griffin because the raked front end tends to provide more stability at high speeds. Unfortunately, today’s choppers often come with a high price tag. While the Griffin isn’t exactly cheap, it’s more affordable than many modern chopper-style bikes, and you won’t have much to complain about when it comes to the power and ride quality. If you’re looking for a stable chopper style bike, the Griffin is a good choice, as it is designed to provide advanced handling and ergonomics. It looks and feels like a tough road machine, but you shouldn’t have many problems keeping it under control.

Before you go out and buy a Saxon Motorcycle Griffin, you may want to check out the rest of the bikes in the Saxon lineup. These bikes are similar, but each has their own distinct advantages. The Warlord, which Saxon Motorcycle considers to be its flagship bike, is quite popular; as is the custom designed Crown with its unique look and feel, but the Griffin can definitely hold its own with all of them. It’s simply a matter of finding the Saxon motorcycle that fits you best.
