WHAT’S THAT? A MUTT GRAND TOURER SUPER SINGLE?
Do people really go touring on small cc bikes? Hell yeh!
We’ve got customers who have ridden our bikes all over the place, London to across Europe and back again.
The GT-SS is the Mutt with longer distance riding in mind… saying that if you just wanna ride your GT-SS down to the pub and have a bit of a pose then that’s cool too baby.
SO, WHAT WERE WE THINKING?
The idea is simple, take one of our heavy-hitting industrial-strength Mutts and send him to a gentleman’s class to learn a little about courteous conduct and give him the tools required for longer road use.
The first step is a bigger tank. For sure our regular tank is plenty big enough, but the GT-SS boasts a whopping 17-litre tank specifically designed for this bike and the Mutt Mastiff. As with all our bikes, we wanted to retain the classic Brit bike lines, and this is no exception. We spent a lot of time making sure the new bigger tank blended in with the classic line of a Mutt.
Topped off with a beautiful chrome Monza style cap the new bigger tank not only looks just peachy but it also means you won’t have to stop for gas for a long, long ride.
RUBBER SIDE DOWN
The GT-SS is designed with longer, smoother rides in mind so we chose a classic yet road-friendly tyre that wrapped around a chrome 18″ wheel which helps this little thumper effortlessly handle the road ahead.
Continuing the retro British style, we opted for chrome wheels, satin-finished aluminium mudguards, chrome headlight, polished speedometer, and satin-finished LED indicators. To steer you in the right direction we went for a set of our satin grey custom bars… because we do love a little custom stuff here at Mutt.
ALL IN THE DETAIL
Look closer and you’ll see some super neat little details on the GT-SS, we’ve got those super cool machined LED indicators, CNC machined headlight brackets, satin-finished aluminium fork caps and head stem nut and those sharp as you like black anodised handlebar clamps.
To accentuate that new mile-munching tank, we went for a retro gloss black and off white paint scheme, that paint scheme continues down on to the high gloss black side panels. Classic black grips match the beautiful, contoured black seat which is hand finished and specific to the GT-SS.
To continue with the custom vibe on the bike and you’ll see a raw satin-finished stainless steel exhaust system and if you haven’t heard it yet, go check one out and start it up, that’s what gives any Mutt bike it’s unique low thumping exhaust note.
We’ve also got a new heavy-duty aluminium sump guard on there, oh and you’ll also see we have some funky little CNC valve covers reminiscent of 1970’s British bikes and a new CNC machined oil filler cap on there too, these details and quality are what elevates you Mutt well above the riff-raff (These details are not on these prototype photos so check out this puppy in the flesh at your local dealer).
Heading to the rear we have a matching chrome 18″ rear wheel and tyre, chrome shocks, chrome grab rails, a shortened brushed aluminium mudguard and of course our tidy little Aluminium LED tail light.
Sat in our classic twin shock tube frame the bullet proof GN engine is fuel injected for extra poke and of course, this Mutt has a 5-speed box, neutral indicator, electric start and everything else you would expect to find on the controls of a modern bike.
So, if you have a little bit more of a refined taste then the Mutt GT-SS is the perfect bike for longer cruising, city hacking or indeed a burn up on the country roads.
