ARCH Motorcycle, the Los Angeles-based bespoke production motorcycle company co-founded by Gard Hollinger and Keanu Reeves, has announced the official launch of its new ARCH 1s model. The 1s represents an evolution helping to define industry categories in the motorcycle world, mixing ARCH’s one-of-a-kind performance cruiser formula with an aggressive riding position to create a Sport Cruiser.
The ARCH 1s is the official second offering from ARCH (following the acclaimed KRGT-1 model) and the company’s first production single-sided, swing-arm motorcycle. It also debuts new mid-controls for a more aggressive riding position and handling while featuring the 124ci, high-torque ARCH/S&S V-twin downdraft fuel injected engine, complemented by an ARCH designed exhaust system and a carbon fiber fuel cell integrating the air intake and filtration system.

“We’re very excited to officially introduce the new ARCH 1s. With the help of our entire team and many amazing partners, we believe we’ve crafted something truly special for riders to experience and are proud to finally see it out there on the road,” said Gard Hollinger, co-founder and design director of ARCH Motorcycle. “The 1s beautifully merges American cruiser-inspired elegance and race-inspired performance — a concept we’ve worked to design, build, test, refine and deliver since its initial reveal. I’m proud and honored that we have this opportunity to share the new 1s model with the world.”
ARCH co-founder Keanu Reeves added, “We just celebrated our 10th anniversary as a company this past year, yet it feels like only yesterday that I put forth the idea of starting a motorcycle company with Gard. It is incredible to see how far we’ve come in such a short period — from the KRGT-1’s amazing reception to the new 1s as our second model. And that’s a real testament to our talented design and build teams and their ability to produce something that fulfills ARCH’s ambitions for what a motorcycle company can bring in architecture, style, elegance and overall experience.”
The ARCH experience includes a bespoke, handcrafted approach across its motorcycle lineup. All owners are met with directly to ensure their bike’s design and ergonomics are tailored accordingly.
Orders for the new ARCH 1s are now available for riders nationwide at the price of $128,000 per build. For inquiries, visit www.archmotorcycle.com/contact.
