Big Dog Motorcycles®, the leading manufacturer of high performance, high style motorcycles, is pleased to announce its all-new Wolf received the 2009 V-Twin Bike of the Year award at the 9th annual V-Twin Expo, the industry’s largest trade show, held February 7-9 in Cincinnati.
Presented by Paisano Publications, a worldwide diversified media company offering a wide variety of motorcycle magazines, including Easyriders and V-Twin, the award marks the second year in a row the company has received the industry’s high honors. Last year, Big Dog Motorcycles’ 2008 Pitbull took home the coveted prize. Other recent models named V-Twin Bike of the Year are the 2006 K-9 chopper and 2005 Bulldog.
The 2009 Wolf has also been praised by other leading industry media.
“The Wolf pushes the limits in design, exceeding customer expectations,” says Hot Bike magazine. Motorcycle.com describes the Wolf as, “a shining masterpiece…a well-balanced pro-street dream…(and) unlike any Big Dog out there.” And Quick Throttle magazine says the new bike looks perfect from every angle with sheer grace of form, elegance in design, yet with a seriously commanding muscular demeanor.
It equally impressed the editors at Paisano Publications with its distinct, striking seamless design; drive side brake; radical 45-degree rake and 9½-long stance; exclusive tri-cam 121 c.i. engine; and amazing maneuverability and riding capabilities.
“It’s an honor to receive this very significant award from editors of such nationally-renowned magazines,” commented Sheldon Coleman, company founder and CEO, who accepted the award. “It speaks loudly about the bike’s benchmark styling along with its unmatched ride and handling.”
“And it also reflects the hard work and dedication of all those involved in creating this game-changing pro-street: Sales, marketing, engineering, purchasing, dealers, and suppliers. Their talents and efforts never been more evident than in this incredible new cruiser,” Coleman continued.
