Good Gravy

Designed by Phil Walker, the G12 was a powerful machine for its time and one of the last motorcycles to be christened under the Matchless banner. When these machines were first released, demand outstripped supply which meant that they were virtually impossible to secure in New Zealand, such was the waiting list. With a strong linear power delivery and classic British lines, the G12 represents what most of us expect from a proper English machine. The G12 is refined and understated with a no-nonsense sensibility that, if pushed, will happily give way to plus 100mph riding. This machine is immaculate.
