Limited Lovelies: Meet Langen’s Second Model, the “LightSpeed”
Langen's "LightSpeed" - a new four-stroke readying for a 2025 UK debut. All media provided by Langen Motorcycles.
The founding roots of Langen Motorcycles may have begun steeped in automotive and development back in 2018, but today’s penchant for ultra-fast, ultra-light, ultra-exclusive bikes has the brand hitting a sweet spot with the right crowds.
In plain English, Langen’s got a good thing going and they’re carrying all of that success forward with a new bike number two.
The question is, how do you beat the Ferrari roots, bespoke exclusivity and £35,280 price tag of bike number one?
Most of the design team are now on the new project, which is what you might describe as a large-capacity four-stroke… I’m losing sleep, but it’s my favorite part of the job – just being involved in [the] development and seeing a new bike coming to life from a blank sheet.”
Front suspension: Ohlins FRT 301 USD 48mm forks with split leg compression and rebound damping, as well as a cartridge kit from multiple national superbike championships.
Rear suspension: Twin Ohlins 36mm STX shock absorbers with a piggyback pressurised gas system, adjustable compression and rebound damping.
HEL Performance has supplied the brake calipers, while brake calipers are courtesy of HEL Performance; a front four-piston unit works with Twin ultra-lightweight 320mm floating discs, while he rear is handled by a single 265mm solid disc.

At £37,000, nearly everything about this bike’s bodywork and componentry is customizeeable, from the paint options, to handlebars, wheels and “other unique finishing touches.” We’re told the LightSpeed is anticipating a UK debut by 2025, though global release will be later, likely further into 2026.
