Voyager

From Graces Guide

Jump to: navigation, search

Voyager was a motorcycle produced between 1989 and 1990. It was designed by Royce Creasey, along the lines of Quasar.

Hopes ran high for this machine. The engine was a four-cylinder Reliant, the gearbox and shaft drive from Moto Guzzi, and the steering by centre-hub Difazio. Originally designed in 1987, the finalized machine (with a few refinements), was launched at the Birmingham NEC in 1989.

The body set the machine apart by offering good weather protection, plenty of luggage space and good crash protection. It was also fast and could eat up the miles comfortably and easily. It was an impressive grand tourer and worked well.

Manufacture was to be by Speak and Co of Powys, Wales. Two machines were built, but despite the interest shown at the exhibition, none were sold.
