Voxan Motorcycles

Voxan logo

Established in 1995, Voxan was based in Issoire in Puy-de-Dôme until 2009. They were well-known for their 996cc 72° V-twin engines. The Boxer SSR is based on the Voxan V-Twin.

In 2010, Gildo Pallanca Pastor of Venturi Automobiles announced the takeover of Voxan which had been in liquidation since December 2009. Subsequently the firm began developing electric motorcycles.

In 2013, Wattman, the first electric motorcycle developed in Monaco, was born. In October 2020 the Wattman broke eleven world speed records with Italian motorcycle rider Max Biaggi at the helm. The following year Biaggi and the Wattman took 21 world records at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida.

Limited Edition French motorcycle
Voxan Boxer VB1 Sport
If you know anyone who ids looking for a mint example of this limited edition french hand built bike then contact me as I have one for sale. Email for full details
Oxford England
Please see attached the standard spec for this limited edition bike, which I have owned from new.

I bought it direct from the French "Boxer" Factory in October 2001 and rode it back to the UK, where is was registered with plate V2VDX. (V2 VOX)

The bike is based on the Voxan Café Racer, sharing its frame, 72 degree 995cc V Twin Engine, suspension, brakes and running gear.

The bike was styled by British Designer Glynn Kerr, who has produced the stunning look.

Only 30 of these bikes were ever made, mine being No 00025. It is therefore now a "collectors" item.

Since owning the bike, I have removed the French 100 bhp restriction on the engine (easy) fitted titanium underseat exhausts, uprated the ECU and brakes (all by specialists)

The bike has been great to own as it turns heads wherever it goes, there being only one other in the UK to my knowledge.

It is also great to ride as it handles, has plenty of power, and sound gorgeous.

As I own many other bikes, I have only covered 3,500 miles on the VB1, so it is still like new.

There is now a UK dealer appointed for Voxan Bikes, ( at so spares should not be a problem, although to date the bike has been 100% reliable.

More info can be obtained from the MCN Website, (road test available) from

There is also a dedicated Voxan Owners Club in France, which can also be access from the Website.

I hope that the above is helpful, but should you require more info, please let me know.

Kind regards
