S-Mart Strong Eagle

      The Strong Eagle was one of the first motorcycles produced by S-Mart. While initially intended to be an alternative to the Highwayman, so common in North America, it eventually came to find it's most popular niche as a racing motorcycle. While it bears a passing resembalance to the old fashioned Highwayman, the Strong Eagle is better armored, and is 40 mph faster than the old motorcycle. While it does enjoy these benefits, it has two sore spots, as compared to the old fashioned type - it handles poorly, and it has half the range of the Highwayman. With a good, skilled rider, and with an experienced pit crew, however, the Strong Eagle is undoubtedly one of the best racing bikes on the market. Aside from this market, the Strong Eagle is growing in popularity among teens and adventurous young adults, but very few true traveling adventurers or mercenaries will buy this bike, due to it's short range. Production began back in 113PA, with new models being released annually.
