Keanu Reeves and Gard Hollinger’s Arch 1s Sport Cruiser Announced

The latest motorcycle to arrive from the mind of Keanu Reeves and Gard Hollinger is here, in the from of the Arch 1s


THE Arch 1s has been officially revealed as Keanu Reeves and Gard Hollinger’s Arch Motorcycle add another Sport Cruiser to the roster.

The new 1s tops the range for Arch Motorcycle now, taking the reigns from the uber-exclusive KRGT-1 which has been around for some years now. Like the KRGT-1, the 1s features billet steel and aluminium in its construction, top-spec components with Dual ISR 6-piston monobloc radial-mount calipers, Öhlins suspension, and BST rims, and a booming Arch-designed S&S Cycle engine. Unlike the KRGT-1, the 1s also includes a first for the American bike builder, an in-house designed and built single-sided swingarm.

The new bike also features a sportier riding position, with mid-set controls which are again a first for the Los Angeles-based manufacturer. Paired with the top-spec suspension and brakes, Arch believes the new bike will blend American cruiser aesthetics and race-inspired performance even more than the KRGT-1 did.

The frame of the new bike features tube and billet construction, while the swingarm is fully billet construction with a titanium axle. The wheels are trick BST carbon fibre items, while the engine is an Arch specification S&S Cycle T124 twin cam unit. In the 1s the engine produces thumping 121lb-ft of torque, six more than the previous KRGT-1.

Speaking about the new bike, co-founder of the company Keanu Reeves said:

“We just celebrated our 10th Anniversary as a company this past year, yet it feels like only yesterday that I put forth the idea of starting a motorcycle company with Gard. It is incredible to see how far we’ve come in such a short period – from the KRGT-1’s amazing reception to the new 1s as our second model. And that’s a real testament to our talented design and build teams and their ability to produce something that fulfils ARCH’s ambitions for what a motorcycle company can bring in architecture, style, elegance, and overall experience.”

Orders for the new ARCH 1s are now available for US-based customers and the starting price is $128,000. As with the KRGT-1, every stage of the build process can be tailored to the new owners' requirements.
