My name is Bill Price. I am the designer of the Bad Dog 215 and a motorcycle enthusiast living and working in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada.

Iíve spent the past forty years working on motorized machinery--including tuning, rebuilding and modifying motorcycle engines. My main design influences are the Nortons and Triumphs Iíve repaired and restored over the years. Iíve paid close attention to the design of these machines, with an eye to improving form and function.

When 3D CAD software became available to guys like me, it gave me the chance to design my dream motor. After thousands of design hours, and several design awards, Iím starting to build my prototypes.

Iíve designed a very powerful motor that is not highly stressed, with enough fin area to run cool in most situations. motor (left)Iíve kept the classic look while updating many features.

I am convinced there is a niche market for these motors. They will appeal to buyers who like the big traditional V-Twins but are looking for something unique and are willing to pay a premium price to move up to a larger, more powerful and more modern powerplant.
