Big Dog Motorcycles
Big Dog Motorcycles is an American motorcycle manufacturing company specializing in high-performance, on-road cruisers.
Founded in 1994, the company grew to become the largest production-custom motorcycle manufacturer in the world, delivering over 30,000 motorcycles across the globe in the heydays of custom motorcycling. Popular for fat-tire choppers with high-performance v-twin engines, Big Dog chooses Avon Tyres to put the power to the ground. The company’s most popular model, the K9, sports a 300mm Avon Cobra rear tire.
“Tire selection is a critical component during our design and development processes. Fat-tire motorcycles look awesome but need the correct tire-profile to maintain proper handling characteristics. We engineer our bikes to use the Avon Cobra series tires because they provide the unmatched handling characteristics our choppers are known for." –Matt Moore, Big Dog Motorcycles
New to the lineup in 2018, Big Dog’s “Boxer” is the company’s first motorcycle to combine on-highway comfort with knee-dragging cornerability. With bloodlines from both the American Cruiser and Import Sport segments, the Boxer combines American Muscle with Sportbike Agility. Donned with Avon Cobra tires fore and aft, the Boxer instills corner-confidence while wielding a 2036cc (124ci) powerplant.
“At aggressive lean angles, tire compound becomes a very serious consideration. We find the Avon Cobra tire to have the right mix for tire-longevity without compromising traction in the corners.”
