If you were to blend an American heavyweight with an Italian superbike, the result would be the Ecosse Heretic. The $44,800 machine boasts the brawny appearance of a custom cruiser and the lightweight performance of a foreign exotic.

The hand-built Heretic is powered by a 1,753cc Patrick Racing V-twin, generating 120 hp and 125 ft lbs of torque at 4,000 rpm. Carbon fiber components maintain the Heretic’s weight at a sprightly 470 pounds.
Ecosse Moto Works, a 2-year-old company located in Clear Creek County, Colo., an hour’s drive from Vail, plans to build 100 Heretics this year. The company is aiming to expand its line with four additional models.
