Vanguard will have a three model range, but for now they are only unveiling one model: the Roadster. The Roadster has been designed to have ‘a contemporary silhouette’, which is somewhat at odds with the rather old-fashioned S&S v-twin hanging in the middle.
The Roadster is currently just a prototype but it does run and Vanguard are aiming to have it in production by 2018. It has a few wacky features, the integrated exhaust and massive tablet-esque dashboard being the most obvious but most surprising of all is the price: the Roadster will start at $29,995, which isn’t too bad when you consider how unique it is. Not so sure about that see-through transfer box though…
