Boss Hoss Cycles, Inc. was established in
1990 when Monte Warne, the founder and president of Boss Hoss Cycles, Inc.,
created his first Chevy V-8 powered motorcycle in his 5000 square foot shop
in Dyersburg, TN. Monte, a commercial aircraft pilot and degreed Aviation
Airframe and Power plant technician, was the first to design a V-8 powered
motorcycle that has a traditional cruiser motorcycle style, look and feel.
This was accomplished by his unique approach to the motorcycles single speed
(one gear) transmission design. The right angle drive transmission allows
the length of the bike to be kept to a minimum and the engine-mounting
inline with the frame made for a well-balanced design that is unequaled by
any other V-8 powered motorcycles.
Over the past seventeen years Boss Hoss
Cycles, Inc. has grown from its humble beginnings in Monte’s shop to a
22,000 square foot manufacturing facility. The product line has also grown
from the conventional two-wheeled motorcycle to include three wheeled
vehicles commonly referred to as trikes.
The product has seen significant
improvements over the years through the R&D efforts of Boss Hoss Cycles’ in
house engineering personnel and specialty contractors. Features like a
2-speed transmission with reverse, inverted front suspension, vacuum formed
body panels, investment cast structural frame components, and many other
specially designed components have helped improve the rigidity and ride of
the Boss Hoss motorcycles.
Boss Hoss has continued to broaden and
expand the V8 motorcycling horizons. In January of 2006 Boss Hoss
motorcycles and manufacturing facility received full vehicle type-approval
from the European Commission (EC), effectively making Boss Hoss Cycles, Inc.
the only globally approved V8 motorcycle manufacturer. At the release of the
2007 model production in August of 2006, Boss Hoss once again put the
motorcycling world on its toes with the introduction of the new Boss Hoss
Super Sport model. The Super Sport is the first new model design by Boss
Hoss since the release of the 502 model in 2000. The lower seat height,
shorter wheelbase and increased suspension travel, makes it feel like you’re
part of the Super Sport... not just on it. This latest creation from Boss
Hoss was designed to attract a wider range of motorcycle enthusiasts. In the
true innovative spirit that brought the Boss Hoss to life, these dream
machines will continue to astonish the most diehard motorcyclist.
Boss Hoss motorcycles are becoming an
international phenomenon, as well as a benchmark of America caftsmanship. No
other production motorcycle in the world brings as much to the road as a

Every Boss Hoss is engineered for total
performance, not just speed. Anyone into performance knows that all the
power in the world is useless if it's unwieldy, unmanageable and unsafe.
Every Boss Hoss is engineered for total performance. Control-designed low
centre of gravity makes the Boss Hoss easy to handle. And its Race-bike
inspired weight distribution formula makes every ounce of the Boss Hoss work
together for smoother, more controlled tracking of curves and city streets
compared to many bikes half its size.
2-Speed Automatic Transmission (with
reverse) gives you smooth, clutch-free operation. And with reverse, you have
far fewer worries about tight spaces than with many other prodution cruisers
or touring bikes.
Even the Boss Hoss's
extended wheel-base was engineered for more than just good looks. The ride
height and length also work to ensure that all that power goes where it
belongs... straight ahead.
