PHOENIX, Dec. 16 -- The January 2000 issue of industry-leading publication Cycle World sports a two-page spread on Titan's latest in a series of bikes designed to inspire a whole new breed of bike enthusiast. The bike is a tag-team effort between Titan and Las Vegas' Shelby American, makers of the V-eight powered Series One Roadster. With a price tag of approximately $48,000 and billed by the magazine as 'a two-wheeler for the exotic car set,' Titan's newest Carroll Shelby-autographed road-running indulgence, available on a limited-edition basis, is not for the weak-hearted. Rubber mounted and 'geared to the moon,' the Series One is designed to cruise along smoothly at 80 mph, while ergonomic seating and curved chrome risers make it all the more comfy for those who truly appreciate that it's not just all about the wind in your hair. "Consistent with our philosophy that a bike worth manufacturing is one that gets high marks for performance as well as aesthetics, Titan's new Series One motorcycle combines the latest in muscle bike technology while boasting an elegant design theme inspired by the Shelby Series One Roadster," said Patrick Keery, president. And, just how do the experts feel about the rarified price point? Says Cycle World Managing Editor Matthew Miles, "We're guessing they'll sell every one of them."
