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.
BIG DOG DETAIL
Look in more detail around the bike you will see some other neat touches you won't have seen before. Starting at the pointy end, you will see those beautiful, handmade brushed TIG welded stainless steel mudguard brackets. A touch you just won't see on other bikes.
Follow the forks upwards, and you get to the bars. These are our aluminium low-rise bars as seen on many of our bikes - but check out those lightweight aluminium and rubber grips, and branded bar ends. These are complemented by our Mutt CNC fork caps and head stem nut. The devil definitely is in the detail.
RAW CUSTOM APPEAL
Moving back past that big Bluto tank you will find some more new design detail. Black lightweight anodised aluminium parts in the form of super-neat new indicator brackets; a set of short rider and pillion pegs; and a drilled aluminium gear lever and shift peg.
Step back, and you will notice brand new additions in the freshly styled side panels and exhaust heat shield. These add to the raw custom appeal of the Akita. Even with its big-bike feel, oozing with custom bike touches, as with all our Mutts it's a lightweight tarmac thumper with plenty of chuck-ability.
