The Akita looks like it could have been carved out of a solid block of hardest granite.
Undeniable Mutt DNA runs through the Akita front to back, but we’ve added a few twists to turn it into this 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. 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.
