The Akita is here, and it looks like it could have been carved out of a solid block of hardest granite. Beautifully brutalist with a custom-built feel you will only get with a Mutt Motorcycle.
Another new addition to the Mutt pack, undeniable Mutt DNA runs through the Akita front to back. But we’ve added a few twists to turn it into the ultimate pavement-pounding pooch.
BUILT LIKE A TANK
Starting with the twin-shock frame and four-stroke single-cylinder power-plant the Akita rolls on 18″ wheels with stainless steel spokes and black aluminium rims wrapped in deep tread knobbly rubber for that all-important Mutt stance. New rear gas shocks help keep the Akita chassis planted firmly on the blacktop.
The first thing that hits you firmly on the schnozz is that tank – and what a tank! That’s 17 litres of rectangular goodness right there, and it gives the Akita a full-on super-pumped stance. Just like Big John ‘broad at the shoulder and narrow at the hip, and everyone knows you didn’t give him no lip’.
With such a big tank we made a new beautiful low-profile shortened custom tan seat. This is the shortest seat of all our bikes and really helps showcase the mighty fuel vessel.
