With the new John Wick movie out, Keanu Reeves is basically everywhere. But here’s something you might not know about the action superstar. He’s really, really into motorcycles. And although I don’t have a motorcycle myself, I really do love them.
Keanu is known for riding motorcycles in some of his movies like Chain Reaction, My Own Private Idaho, and of course, the latest John Wick movie. He loves motorcycles so much that he started his own motorcycle company called Arch Motorcycle. In 2007, Keanu and his friend built a custom motorcycle and after it turned out pretty well, they decided to start building custom cycles with all different types of parts for whoever wanted one.
According to the Arch website, “ARCH Motorcycle creates custom production motorcycles with a unique blend of performance, customization and attention to detail. Ergonomic and aesthetic preferences are curated and tailored to create a one-of-a-kind motorcycle directly reflective of its owner. Over 200 proprietary parts are manufactured at our California facility using state-of-the-art CNC and water-jet machinery. Impeccable billet aluminum bodywork is blended with carbon fiber details and custom finishes to produce each unique motorcycle.”
How cool is that? Have you ever wanted a motorcycle co-designed by Keanu Reeves? Well I’m sure they’re not cheap considering you have to put in an application before you can even have a chance to buy one, but it’s definitely worth it if you’re into cycles.
Here’s a video where Keanu talks more about his motorcycle obsession.
