Filling a Vacant Niche

You can find here an article by journalist Paul d’Orleans for the US magazine Cycle World. Of the SS100 he says ‘For a small producer’s wholly new engine, it’s something of a miracle it works so damn well. The gearchange is firm and accurate, the clutch is progressive and strong and the Ohlins suspension does its job unobtrusively…My favorite model is all black, but my well used test bike harvested eyeballs everywhere it went’ Thierry Henriette ‘has made an intriguing motorcycle that is totally up to date with terrific performance, a retro, classy vibe, and a totally unique look. It actually fills the vacant niche of the Gentleman’s Motorcycle’.
