The ARCH 1s is a motorcycle that transcends conventional categorization by blending elements of cruiser and street sport riding. It boasts a pioneering single-sided billet aluminum swingarm, which enhances both functionality and aesthetics. The rear/mid-mounted foot controls provide a more aggressive riding posture, enabling smooth transitions and harder cornering.
The ARCH 1s is powered by a 124ci high-torque ARCH / S&S V-twin engine, with an exhaust system designed by ARCH. The motorcycle's performance architecture combines a steel mainframe with a machined-billet aluminum subframe, which offers intuitive handling and power delivery. Carbon fiber is used extensively, delivering a lighter and more nimble riding experience.
The ARCH 1s is a Sport Cruiser that is inspired by racing, featuring a carbon fiber fuel cell with a built-in air intake and filtration system. The air flows through side vents at the front of the tank and leads directly to the intake system located at the rear of the fuel cell, which reduces the bulk of a side-mounted air filtration system. The motorcycle's swingarm is designed to work in sync with the Öhlins rear shock absorber, which pushes the unsprung mass of the wheel and tire back to the road, creating a more responsive feel. With its innovative design and state-of-the-art technology, the ARCH 1s is a motorcycle that redefines what it means to be a Sport Cruiser.
