|About||Torch Motorcycles is a community of female moto-enthusiasts and their pals. We are riders, educators, community builders, designers, artists, entrepreneurs, inventors, makers and collaborators. Our mission is to collect real data, build community, and to co-design new cafe racer inspired bikes, components, and apparel for women. All Torch products are designed to be safe, comfy, and drop dead gorgeous. We run programs and meet-ups out of the Torch loft in Calgary’s Victoria Park.|
Torch Motorcycles came out of a road trip. During a couple's weekend ride through the Rocky Mountains, we stopped in Revelstoke and found ourselves in the company of a master machinist and vintage English motorcycle restorer. A casual remark ("that's a lady bike") inspired the question: "Why don't women have their own motorcycles? Why should we make due with small men's bikes painted pink? And that goes double for jackets, gloves, and scarves."
By the time we got to Golden, Torch Motorcycles was born. Not restored bikes, but modern bikes with a retro style built for a woman's frame and hands no matter what size or shape. Fun to ride, fun to customize, stylish, and easy to maintain.
