Sealy, Texas (January 25, 2023) – Hennessey, the Texas-based hypercar manufacturer and high-performance vehicle creator, has created the ultimate pairing for thrill-seeking individuals who enjoy pushing two- and four-wheeled vehicles to the limit. The Hennessey VelociRaptor 600 ‘Sherco Edition’ combines the off-road power and prowess of a 558 bhp 4×4 VelociRaptor 600 pickup with the agility and exploration capabilities of high-performance Sherco enduro motorcycles.
Both the truck and motorcycles have been uniquely configured for the pairing. The VelociRaptor 600 is enhanced with a distinctive Sherco racing livery, six-piston Brembo brakes, a bed rack from Risk Racing for securely transporting two bikes, a five-gallon fuel jug and mount, plus a bed extender that doubles as a bike loading ramp. The Sherco bikes (customers may opt for two-stroke 300 SE or four-stroke 300 SEF) feature single-cylinder liquid-cooled engines. As part of the Hennessey package, the SE has an upgraded compression head, while the SEF employs a Race Tech race head. In addition, both bikes feature upgraded radiator and rear rotor guards from BulletProof Designs, skid plate with linkage protection from AXP Racing, enduro grips, and S3 perch clamps, alongside several other enhancements.
John Hennessey, founder and CEO: “Our customers drive our trucks hard, both on- and off-road, participating in a variety of motorsports activities. The collaboration with Sherco aligns our high-performance VelociRaptor 600 with equally as capable enduro bikes.”
Sherco bikes are respected worldwide for their performance in the most extreme environments. From tackling the grueling Dakar Rally to competing in top-level Enduro and Trials events. Backed by first-class engineering, nothing phases the agile and responsive range of machines.
Ron Sallman, president of Sherco USA: “We are thrilled to partner with Hennessey Performance, a world-class organization with deep roots in the off-road world – it’s a match made in heaven. We are excited to launch our enhanced Hennessey-edition Sherco’s alongside the Hennessey VelociRaptor 600 Sherco Edition.”
Beyond the power, performance, and capability enhancements for the truck and bikes, owners looking to get hold of a special Hennessey VelociRaptor 600 Sherco Edition will benefit from the truck’s comprehensive three-year / 36,000 Mile Limited Warranty. Customers will also be reassured to know that Hennessey is the world’s largest producer of modified Ford F-150 Raptors. Over the past decade, the company has built thousands of high-performance VelociRaptor trucks for customers all over the world.
