Hes­keth’s new su­per­charged Valiant SC shows hope for post-EU Bri­tain: it’s com­pletely de­signed and build by Bri­tish com­pa­nies. It might even be tasty enough to make Jeremy Cor­byn don Union flag Y-fronts, join UKIP and plant a smacker on Farage...

De­vel­oped in con­junc­tion with Northants su­per­charg­ing demigods TTS, the SC boasts 210bhp and an el­bow-pop­ping 217lb.ft of torque. Hes­keth pre­dict it could have up to 250bhp by the time it goes on sale.

The 2100cc V-twin fea­tures the best of Bri­tish, with K-Tech sus­pen­sion front and rear, their own three-piece wheels and bil­let brake calipers. The frame and swingarm are built by GIA En­gi­neer­ing. Hes­keth say when the bike’s avail­able in 2018 it will cost up­wards of £50k.

Fu­ture of Bri­tish en­gi­neer­ing never looked in such good shape
