    Introducing the VGM ‘Apache’ motorcycle

    The VGM (Veterans Garage Motorcycles) Apache is developed by the Veterans' Garage charity using the Fuego Tekken and money from every sale will go towards helping British veterans of the military (especially those with PTSD and trying to adapt to civilian life) and also blue light services through a unique project that allows the veterans to come together and work with motorcycles and cars, retrain for new jobs, receive counselling and just generally regain their sense of worth.
    This motorcycle is ready for order now so if you want further details of costings, technical details, after-sales services and also if you would like to book a test ride just contact me at
    englishmaninchina@gmail.com

    Hi All, I'm not in the least bit affiliated to these, but, I do like what they're doing .. From their site ..

    The Veterans’ Garage is a unique approach to providing support to Military Veterans across the North West to have a stable social hub, to learn new skills, and receive the support and advice that is available to them.

    Our aim is to build a hub for ex-servicemen and the local community to come together, creating a facility that can serve as a venue for unique automotive events that can raise funds and awareness for local causes.

    The offerings of the Veterans’ Garage will go beyond socialisation and companionship, as this is just one part of the reestablishment necessary for those who are ex-service to successfully reintegrate to civilian life

    Now after delays caused by governmental red tape and bureaucracy the building of the VG is once again full steam ahead and welcomes anyone who wishes to help us out in any way.

    VETERANS GARAGE MOTORCYCLES

    We are just beginning to develop this page and will add more details and more motorcycle models in the near future! The VGM motorcycles will be ready to buy from late March.

    Please get in touch if you would like more details or would like to book a test ride (test ridea will take place at Manchester City Airport, the old Barton Airdrome in Eccles). Always remember that a percentage of every bike's price goes to help fund the Veterans' Garage.
    Now, I know, that these bikes are Chinese bikes ( Fuego Tekken), which, no doubt means a few of you wouldn't give them the time of day, especially over here in the UK. Whilst their current bike doesn't appeal to me, I hope it is a successful venture, and they do expand the range, as they indicate, to larger capacity & electric bikes, so, I will keep an eye on them.

    To begin with at least, I suppose it will be a case of the cost comparison between VGM's 'Apache' and Lexmoto's Tekken 125 EFI, the same bike effectively.

    Thanks for your comments, we'll be adding a scrambler to the list at the end of this year, I'll keep everyone posted.

    Yes it's the same bike (my wife is a partner with Fuego and sells to Lex) but we've made it a bit more 'military' in keeping with the project.
