Gotta Love His Passion
No matter how you feel about Keanu Reeves as an actor, you have to admit Arch Motorcycles, the company he co-founded is pretty awesome. It produces only a couple of different bikes. However, they’re special machines with bespoke components and a lot of things built in-house.
Reeves recently did an interview with GQ Magazine about his motorcycle endeavors. You can see how passionate he is about everything on two wheels. Reeves discusses his love for motorcycles and riding very candidly. He also goes into how Arch came into existence. It’s an interesting story and one worth hearing.
You get the feeling in the video that Reeves is being himself. He’s very candid with his answers. You can tell everything was off the cuff.
One bike that stands out in the video is the Method 143 concept motorcycle that the company has built. Reeves says the bike will eventually get a lot more carbon fiber and become a production motorcycle. That’s something I would love to see because it looks like an absolute rocket. According to Reeves, it will get a heck of an engine, too, with a 2,300cc displacement. That sounds awesome. You can check out the full video below.
