Maverick Supermoto Upgrade Kit
The Maverick 125cc has been a staple of the Herald range since its launch back in 2017. With a rugged aesthetic and a growling exhaust to match, this bike is certainly a head turner.
Suited to any adventure, the Maverick has tackled them all from the Land’s End to John O’ Groats road trip, the Welsh Trans Euro trail and many more, including becoming a rather unconventional race bike.
Taking to the track on the Maverick 125cc at last year’s Bike Shed Festival located at Lydden Hill Race Circuit in Canterbury, the team put it through its paces in the Herald Cup, a 125cc only event. Taking inspiration from Supermotos gone by, we changed the 18’ front wheel for a smaller 17’ wheel and replaced the stock knobbly tyres for something a little more track ready selecting Avon Roadriders.
Avon Tyres were established in 1904 in Melksham, just east of Bath and have manufactured tyres in the UK for over a century, this extensive knowledge and experience is apparent in the end product.
After a few tentative test laps first time racer & Herald rider Elliot confidently grew into the race getting lower into the corners, the Roadriders held their own and the Maverick could be heard roaring down the final stretch of the Lydden Hill circuit all the way from the furthest bar. The Maverick’s stellar performance and handling on the track made it a quick favourite for the team at Herald HQ and it can be seen ripping round Cambridgeshire most weekdays.
We have now released the aftermarket Super Moto upgrade package for Maverick 125 riders that want that road bike handling and performance while keeping the rugged aesthetic of the Maverick which makes it so appealing. Included in the package is a 17’ front wheel and a pair of Avon Roadrider tyres, available for £360 inc. VAT* via our HQ parts department & dealer network.
