Carlini has been designing custom motorcycles and accessories since 1969.
What is your approach to the design methodology?
"We read all of the publications and attend bike shows and build offs, we get a general sense of where style is currently, where it's been, and where we see it going - we try to discover the voids."
"We find where there are deficiencies in the marketplace, and try hard to come up with something innovative. We don't ever believe in coming with something just to jump in the market. We find what is deficient, come up with something innovative, we develop a design, make a working prototype, and bring it to market."
"Everything is always original, we don't ever come up with anything that's been done before. Everything gets an application for a patent, and if it doens't receive a patent, we don't market it."
All Carlini parts are designed and manufactured in USA!
