Big Bear Paradox

 

 

 

 

It’s a paradox to think that a highly artful motorcycle can perform so well, be so comfortable and so reliable. It’s usually a contradiction in the motorcycle world. We do not believe in compromising. We call it Paradox. It’s one of the first production motorcycle to roll with the new large diameter wheels, a 23” front and 20” rear. The Paradox holds an innovative dimensionally composite downtube shroud that not only completes the motorcycle’s front aesthetic lines, but it also acts to hide the less desirable clutch cable. The oil tank is the signature large capacity unit but with unique concave molding design work. Both front and rear fenders feature a subtle and elegant ridge that fades away at the halfway point. The motorcycle’s exclusive swingarm design comes with an inventive stylistic cover, hiding the tubular frame structure, axle adjusters and brake line. The Paradox is powered by the famous 100 SMOOTH™ with an EFI option, or even better, the new 114” S&S X-Wedge EFI engine. The Paradox is harmony of elegance and strength. An American motorcycle, redefined.

“Ergonomically, the BBC engineers nailed it with a comfortable reach to the bars and pegs. The low 19: seat height gave good control at waddling speeds. Wide bars offered plenty of leverage, and steering at full lock didn’t make the bike want to fall-in during parking maneuvers.” said by Eric Bass in Barnet’s Motorcycle Showcase. December 2008.
