Get These Dogs While They're Hot

Big Dog Motorcycles has launched a limited-edition, all-black version of its 2008 Mastiff in a 125-bike run.

Like its standard brethren, the limited production Mastiff runs a 117 cu. in. motor and Big Dog's six-speed Balance Drive transmission. The custom OEM says this set up will get rider and bike from zero to 60 in 3.9 seconds.

The bike comes standard with four-piston caliper brakes, speedometer with integrated LED tachometer, 2-1 exhaust and a hidden shock for the rear suspension.

For this limited run, Big Dog kept its signature 300mm rear tire, curved down tubes, stretched one-piece tank and 42-degree rake. The bike also features several black powder-coated elements and the engine jugs and heads gets the diamond-cut treatment. Front and back there are black-anodized 12-spoke wheels.

For those looking for something less minimal, the Mastiff's black can be offset by pinstripes or flames.

Customers looking for something more can opt for the air ride suspension, a sissy bar and passenger seat, made-to-order customs seats, or Big Radius or Mean Mother exhaust systems.
