Saxon 1600 HENCHMAN 2011

The Saxon universe is for enthusiasts, those looking for other values. Speed, performance, the last gram saved for a thousandth better on the track, over-the-counter Superbikes or streetfighters that terrorize the streets, they don’t care. Among these are John and Hogger. John loves the big American custom and it is unthinkable for him that another country makes machines with the American perfume of the 60s. Hogger, him, always seeks new sensations, explores new genres, loses interest in large production and prospecting among artisans the taste for know-how and preparation. They met in Paris, at a marine biology congress, and their shared passion for the reproduction of the Andean porpoise led them to sympathize. Three herbal teas and a big heated dialogue later, John wanted to discover the Saxons – That’s good: the only French importer is in the capital.

John, he’s not a sweet tooth, and he drinks white spirit at breakfast. He needs a machine like him, dry, stripped down, with a deep black soul and a manly frame. So he turned to the Henchman. A radical motorcycle, whose rigid frame is not good for the lower back. First of all the sensations, the raw and authentic contact of the road. Wild, the American is satisfied with the minimum and refuses the superfluous. A rear suspension? To do what ? A pair of springs under the saddle will do the trick. Tinsel? No need. The twin S&S is there to occupy the eyes, to snore like a grumbler, and to shake the plexus when it is tickled. With 1573 cm3 of cubing, his large hand equipped with 12 mkg gives in the register American musculature. Its sober side is also reflected in the price. Indeed, the Henchman is the cheapest of the range. But in absolute terms, its 280 kilos of metal can only be exchanged for a sum close to 23,000 euros. You can easily add a small 1000 bill to equip it with a springer fork of the most beautiful effect. John wants it like this, but Hogger would have chosen it with more accessories; with a good wallet, there is much to customize the machine.

So excited, John did not immediately calculate that the secondary transmission was provided by a chain. Yet it is traditionally a belt that takes care of transmitting the potato on these machines. Our hero of the night was much more interested in spoke rims, Brembo brakes, Supertrapp silencer, its wheelbase much smaller than that of the Warlord or Firestorm, and especially this fascinating face. The Henchman captivates and dominates as it is not allowed. A Harley would look bland next to her. As for Japanese customs, let’s not even talk about it.
John left with his new conquest towards the highlands of the Vendée. Hogger, happy to have deflowered a new pal, returned to seek adventures beyond the borders. After the Mirabelle, Cousteau, Chopin, and the Viandox, he found in Saxon enough to satisfy his desires for rebellion.
